How I Built A Multi-Six Figure Passive Income Based Online Business happy hour with hope

For Photographers

Today I’m sharing something with you that I don’t talk about often – my business journey, specifically when it comes to revenue and money. I share how I went from a senior portrait photographer to a multi six-figure, passive income-based, online business in the last several years and let me start off by saying that I’m not sharing this as a way to brag but to encourage you! From the very beginning of my photography business, even at 16 and 17 years old, I’ve held workshops and taught other photographers because I believe that anything I learn in my journey of being a business owner isn’t mine to keep to myself.

So in today’s video, you’ll hear my full story of how I went from a service-based photographer to having an online, passive income based business that has produced the majority of my revenue the last 5-6 years. But my purpose and my hope is that you walk away feeling encouraged and with your wheels turning on how you can diversify your revenue to have the same result in your small business.

And, I have a free gift for you using one of the principles that has gotten me where I am today – email marketing. It’s really simple! You’ll answer some questions about you, your business, your customers, your and your offers in a short quiz and I’ll send you a free welcome email template that you can copy and paste to use in your own email marketing strategy. Click here to take the quiz and you can get started on scaling your business today!
