educational resources for private photo editors & small business owners

together, we can do this

I still remember it was like it was yesterday: feeling so crushed by my business that I was curled up on my bed, tears streaming down my face while I was struggling for air. I had quit my steady 9-5 job to pursue my private editing business, and it was completely crushing me. The long nights without sleep, the stress of uncertainty, the pressure of growing a small business...all of it had become a heavy burden. It felt like I was drowning, and I knew something had to change.

I started my photo editing business because I wanted freedom. I wanted the freedom to live where I wanted, to have control over my own schedule, and to spend more time with my family. I was willing to work hard to get there, but my hardest never seemed to be enough. It wasn't until I got some help that I realized that it wasn't that my hardest wasn't enough, it was that I had no idea how to structure my business to make it work.

With a little bit of help and a lot of changes within my business, I was able to streamline my workflows to double my income and grow my business from 2 clients to 13 clients in just one year. Even though I took on more clients, I had more time in my schedule to spend with loved ones, and I figured out a way to have healthy work/life balance.

Asking for help and investing in education changed my life and my business, which is why I've put together tons of resources for private photo editors. I've been where you are, and I know how tough running an editing business can be. My hope is that you will use these resources to grow your business and take back your life one catalog at a time. 

Below are the top tools I use to run my business! Some of these resources listed below contain affiliate links, but I would never recommend anything that I didn’t use myself and love!
