Do you feel that the opposite is true? That your business has become your life? Well, Imaging USA offers you the chance to get your life back. Join us for Vicki Taufer's Kodak-sponsored "Simplify Your Business and Get Your Life Back" Imaging USA class on January 15, 2012!
It's All in the Balance
"It is important to know what your strengths and weaknesses are, so that you can focus on your strengths and outsource or receive help with your weaknesses," Vicki explains.
For her, the joy of being a photographer comes from documenting her client's lives. It's one of her strengths. "I have been documenting many of the same families and their milestones over the past 12 years," she says. "I started out my business hoping to create clients for life, and I have done that."
While Vicki loves creating relationships with her clients, she admits to being challenged by the day-to-day tasks of managing her business, including managing employees. Her strengths, she says, do not include managing people! To overcome this challenge, she simplified her management by downsizing her staff to just the essential people. She also receives consulting from people whose strengths ARE in such areas.
Learn From Her Experiences
At Imaging USA, Vicki's class will provide you with many more tips for simplifying your business and getting back to what you love to do--taking photographs.
"The most important lesson I can share is how to work smarter, not harder," Vicki adds. "Too many photographers let their businesses run their lives. Come see how I am overcoming similar struggles to have more balance in my life, while still being successful in my business."
