It was a year ago today that my destined career path changed and I took the photography business full-time. Rewind back nearly six years ago, while still in college, I accepted a position with one of the Big 4 accounting firms – Deloitte and Touche. At that time, I was near certain I had found my chosen career path. Having already completed a 3 month internship in San Francisco with another firm, I had determined I wanted to take the “partner track” through the firm and have a very long and successful career.
Fast forward to today and Wow things have changed for me. I left the corporate world almost exactly a year ago today. So much has changed for me during this time… I saw the business grow to a new level, I became a dad, and I learned that running your own business requires a lot of work! It has not been easy, but it sure has been amazing. My past career life has faded to the back of my mind and seems like a dream. It no longer seems strange to respond “I’m self-employed”. Running my own business has been no piece of cake, I’ve put in many more hours than I would have ever expected. However, I no longer feel an emptiness that I’m not following my dream. The business is growing and for that I’m so grateful!
I no longer consider myself “Tied Down”. I truly believe that life is way too short to not follow your passion! I’m feel so blessed to be doing what I love! Thanks for the support from family and friends and of course my SUPER-SUPPORTIVE Wife! Looking forward to the future of this business.
