As I logged on to my blog I realized that is been over a year since I last posted. A year.
It’s easy to feel like a failure for letting so many balls drop this past year when it comes to running my business, but the honest truth is that I’ve had a bit too much to juggle. I’ve never had a more difficult year parenting, if I’m being honest. It’s been brutal, but I’ve learned a lot.
Around time last year I found myself with zero sessions booked and zero dollars, and as a single mom to two teenage boys, that was hella scary. I looked into getting another job, but without a degree I didn’t qualify for any that would actually pay a livable wage, so I decided that it was time to go back to school.
Taking full-time school while still running my business, my household and yard, being a mom, and still having a social life was crazy, to say the least. But I got through it, (with straight A’s to boot) but because I was too busy all spring to properly prepare for the slow summer, my business was nearly non-existent again. I really need someone to do my marketing. (facepalm)
I just started my final semester at SLCC and will transfer to Westminster in Spring 2020 to earn my bachelors in social work. (I think…I’m having a really hard time deciding since I’m already doing what I want to do.) It’s nice to have a back up plan for my future.
But for now, I’m still doing photography, hooray! I’d love to hear what you’ve been up to, and if you need a photographer, let me know.
