I'm the founder & owner of Emily Moore Boutique Photo Editing. If you asked me 8 years ago if I thought I’d be where I am in this small business of mine today, I would have laughed. That girl — the editor who quit her full-time 9-5 job without any clients & started a business from scratch — she never could have imagined her business growing so much within a couple of years. I’m so glad I was able to prove that girl wrong.
YOGA PANT OBSESSED, CRAVES RELAXING BEACH DAYS WITH A MARGARITA IN HAND, DREAMS OF TRAVELING THE WORLD
After graduating from Appalachian State University in 2013, I was faced with a difficult decision: pack my bags and head across the country away from everyone I knew to start an amazing career, or stay home where the job prospects weren’t good, but things felt safe and comfortable. I was terrified to leave, but I knew I would look back one day and regret it if I didn’t go. So I bought a one-way ticket to Oregon, found an apartment and left everything behind.
IT ALL STARTED with THE scariest DECISION OF MY LIFE...THE ONE THAT WOULD CHANGE EVERYTHING.
I’ve grown my small business into a six-figure business, taught editing students from all over the world, and grew a successful editing team. It has been an amazing journey so far, and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for this little business of mine!
OVER THE PAST 8 YEARS,
After my boyfriend (now husband) and I got engaged, I was faced with another difficult decision: move home and start my business from scratch with ZERO client prospects, or stay in Oregon where I had great job security. I loved my job with my company, but North Carolina has always been, and will forever be, my home. So I was off again, this time to start my very own business. I was terrified, but with the support of my friends and family, I was confident that everything would be okay.
It's amazing how our entire lives are shaped by a few small decisions.
