Let's talk business. There's no doubt that you are out there every day working hard to make your work top-of-the-line, and be the best photographer you can be. But if you're wondering why your work is not getting the recognition and profit it deserves, maybe PPA's Business Challenge is the solution for you!

The Business Challenge helps members reach their business goals and overall become more profitable. It's a free, year-long program that is supported by mentors who are here to guide you, step-by-step, on how to take your business to the next level.

The Business Challenge is a fun, interactive way for PPA members to integrate as much business acumen as they can in one year's time. There is work involved, as this "challenge" is meant for photographers who are serious about taking their business to the next level. Participants will have tasks to complete and the opportunity to be active members of accountability groups and peer-to-peer mentoring. 

"PPA's business advice is based on years of experience and successful business mentoring," says Angela Kurkian, M.Photog.Cr., CPP and Director of Education at PPA. "The Business Challenge helps our members be more business-confident. It helps them think and strategize as a savvy business person." 

Many photographers are self-made, so they never had the chance to get proper training and education on the business side of how to be a successful and profitable photographer. PPA has filled in that knowledge gap with the Business Challenge.

One of our many satisfied members, Alison Satterfield, had this to say about the program: "This challenge is so awesome! I'm so happy that there is actual math that can put a real-life value on a hard-to-measure workload! I can now make sense of my numbers and it's useful and fun!"
