So yesterday we headed into downtown Dallas to meet Jasmine Star and attend theFIX. It was a relaxing time to meet other local photographers, hear J* talk, ask questions, and learn how to improve our business. After we left we immidiately got in the car and began talking about how we can improve our business. Although most of the information disucessed was information we already knew, it was so refreshing to visit these ideas again.
The one idea we really walked away with was how to maximize our strengths and avoid weaknesses. Jasmine said to make a list of all of your strengths and find ways to impliment them. One way for us is that fact that we love talking with people and making new friends. Our goal on how to impliment this is to do more face-to-face consultations with potential brides. We have had numerous consultations where we walk away feeling like we not only booked a client, but we made a new friend, and that is best feeling in the world!
Although we should strive to make our weaknesses better, if we know what our weaknesses are, than we probably shouldn’t be doing things publicly that are related to them. For example, she said if you are a really bad writer and often times don’t know what to write about, maybe blogging everyday is not the best option for you.
So we told Jasmine that, yep, we are the crazy ones that brought their baby to theFIX. Sorry. lol. We were pretty sure Jasmine wanted see Stella though. However, Stella didn’t make a peep (we even had someone at the end ask us if she was there the whole time because they didn’t hear any babies #bestbabyever) and she’s just to young for us to trust anyone else with her yet :) Soon, Stella’s aunt Courtney will be moving here to DFW and will be able to watch her for us :)
