Work ON Your Business More Than IN It
Jeffrey Shaw Cr.Photog.
This video is Jeff Shaw’s how-to on working smarter, not harder! A part of his 5-part series on characteristics of successful people, this course tells you how to take a step back and get un-involved for a moment so that you can make your business even better.
This video is about “visioning” not reacting. Listen as Jeff discusses strengths and weakness, things to outsource, things to put on a “not-to-do” list. Discover ways to grow your business, not just handle it. Think about team-building and training and how this can expand your bandwidth. Redefine the big picture and the goals for your studio, rather than just reacting to the day-to-day.
Sometimes we have to take a step back to make room for a big leap forward—this class is the perfect way to do that!
We value your feedback and want to know how we can improve. Please share your thoughts about the class here.
Based in Manhattan, Jeffrey has been the go-to portrait photographer for an exclusive clientele for 30 years. He is also a trained business coach from The Coaches Training Institute and an inspiring public speaker, having presented before 20 organizations in two years. He travels nationwide meeting his clients at beautiful destinations and working with photographers in workshops and conventions. His portraits have appeared on The Oprah Show, in “O” magazine, People Magazine, CBS news, and most recently the cover of New York Family Magazine. Never one to follow a well-worn path, Jeff has built a meaningful life on instinct rather than rules and on his vision instead of circumstances.
During the height of Jeff’s career he hired a business coach to help him manage the many issues that come with a fast growing business—the rewards and the struggles. It was a period of deep soul searching and business expansion. Through this work there were many “a-ha!” moments and one stood out in particular: why he became photographer.
Jeffrey is the youngest of three boys and during his youth there is only one known photograph capturing his entire childhood; literally no history that offers a photographic memory. This is the power of portrait photography. So half way through his career and with this new realization he would cement his purpose—to support his clients in being as responsible as they could be documenting their family’s treasured moments. This aspiration profoundly increased his commitment to his clients and resulted in stronger relationships, a business that directly supported his life’s purpose and an uncommon level of success.
Jeff’s personal experience with coaching over a decade ago and how it changed his life lead him to become a trained business life coach specifically for fellow photographers. He has committed to providing educational forums for photographers who want to improve their businesses and desire personal growth.
