Girl Boss Book Club – August

FROM AMAZON: “Face it, the checklist of tired ‘P’s marketers have used for decades to get their product noticed -Pricing, Promotion, Publicity, to name a few-aren’t working anymore. There’s an exceptionally important ‘P’ that has to be added to the list. It’s Purple Cow.

Purple Cow describes something phenomenal, something counterintuitive and exciting and flat out unbelievable. Every day, consumers come face to face with a lot of boring stuff-a lot of brown cows-but you can bet they won’t forget a Purple Cow. And it’s not a marketing function that you can slap on to your product or service. Purple Cow is inherent. It’s built right in, or it’s not there. Period.

In Purple Cow, Seth Godin urges you to put a Purple Cow into everything you build, and everything you do, to create something truly noticeable. It’s a manifesto for marketers who want to help create products that are worth marketing in the first place.”

About the Girl Boss Book of the Month: I have read so many amazing books that have truly inspired me, and I want to share them with YOU!  Here’s how it works.  At the end of every month, I will post the book that I will be reading for the next month.   At the end of the month, I will post on Facebook my thoughts on the book.  I hope you will post your thoughts and comments as well.  My goal is to have this be an awesome opportunity to build connections, grow as thoughtful creatives and get inspired to dream and do bigger and better things.

I can’t wait!  Are you in?

Have you missed the boat for creative entrepreneurs?

Creative Business OwnerI’m on Instagram, and I’m looking at some accounts where (if I’m being totally honest) their creativity supersedes anything I could ever hope to have with in my own iPhone holding hands. There they are with beautiful and cohesive images filling their little grids. They’ve already done it, and their follower count proves it. And I wonder…have I already missed the boat.

You see an artist. They are creating beautiful work. Work that resonates with the same artistry that is in your own heart. Only there work is flying off the shelves. Their following proved that others love them. And you wonder… have I already missed the boat.

You have a dream to start your own business and to share your message, your creativity, your art with the world. You decide to do a little research and find that there are others doing exactly what you want to do, and they are doing great. In fact, what they are putting out there looks so good, you want some of it yourself. And you wonder… have I already missed the boat.

It’s no longer a pond. It’s an ocean swimming with all kinds of creatives in every shape, size, depth, and variety. It’s easy to believe that there is no room left for you.

But this… this is when you have to dig deep. This is when you have to know you’re why.

That why that says, “I do this because I love it. Because I believe it. Because…

I don’t want to be doing anything else.”

And in that moment, you know – there is always going to be room for you. The boat has not set sail without you. The boat is waiting for you to steer its course in a new and incredible direction.

Girl Boss Book Club – July

FROM AMAZON:Countless books on success tell you what you need to get that you don’t already possess. In Act Like a Success, Think Like a Success, Steve Harvey tells you how to achieve your dreams using the gift you already have. Every one of us was born with a gift endowed by our creator—something you do the best at with very little effort. While it can be like someone else’s, your gift is yours alone. No one can take it away. You are the only one who can use it—or waste it.

Steve shows how that gift holds your greatest chance at success, and the fulfillment of your life’s mission and purpose. He helps you learn to define your gift—whether it’s being a problem solver, a people-connector, a whiz with numbers, or having an eye for colors. He makes clear that your job is not your gift; you may use it in your work, but it can also be used in your marriage or relationship, your community, and throughout every aspect of your life. Throughout, he provides a set of principles that will help you direct your gift. “The scriptures say your gift will make room for you and put you in the presence of great men,” Steve reminds us. This book is your roadmap to identifying your gift, acknowledging it, perfecting it, connecting it to a vehicle, and riding it to success. Because Success is the gift you already have.”

Longterm Family Travel

We leave in 5 days… The #1 question I keep getting asked is… Are you ready?

Ummmm no.

I don’t know how you could ever really feel ready for a trip like this (although I assume there are some incredible families out there who are planners to a level I can only image – and well, they are).

I  – on the other hand –  am not.

There are certain areas of my life where I’d claim to be great at planning, and of course, anyone who’s been following me for anytime knows how much I love systems and automating. But to create those, you need experiences of your own that teach you how to build them.

Since we have no experience taking up our family of 5, packing us into a few suitcases and traveling around for a year… We are counting a lot more on hope, a prayer, and Google than any experience of our own.

Today, my goal is to actually start packing the suitcases and deciding what we are and are not bringing.

Clothing will be the hardest part of course, but there is also the school supplies, the medical supplies (for just in case), and of course my big pink office is being compacted down to fit in one little (extremely cute I might add) backpack.

So are we ready? Nope. But we’ll get there.

Or we won’t. Either way, we are hopping on a plane in just a few days and starting this adventure.

It’s a huge challenge, but we’ve always been okay with making things up as we go along, and well, for the first little bit, that’s what we’ll have to rely on. It’s exciting and nerve racking (which to me means we must be on the verge of something great). I change from moment to moment on how prepared or completely un-prepared I feel, but all I can do is roll with the emotions.

Even in this moment surrounded by laundry, papers, hard drives, suitcases and a stash of chocolate for sanity… I know the adventure has already begun and it’s going to be great!

Soon we will be sharing all of our adventure on a dedicated blogsite for our travels.You can  get on this list to find out when our travel blog goes live! (hopefully very soon!)

Want to come along? I’ll be posting the amazing places we’ll see + the behind the scenes of making this adventure a reality on Instagram (@LeahRemillet).

Webinar: Photography Business Success

Photo Biz Success_Webinar

Happy day!

I’m super excited to introduce and invite you to a brand new online training that I’m hosting this Wednesday!

Recently, many of you answered our survey when we asked what do you need help with most for your photography.

And you answered, “I need help with…”

– Reaching my Target Client

– Getting more Potential Clients to See My Business

– Getting More Referrals

– Creating a Great Experience for My Clients

And oh my word… I get it! I remember when I started my photography business, and I wanted those same answers.  It was frustrating trying to find somewhere I could get the answers, or someone who could give it to me straight.

I wanted a blue print…. Show me what works, tell me why it works, and point me in the right direction.

After years and years of testing and trying strategies, ideas, and concepts that are out there (even a few of my own), and then turning those over to other photographers and seeing their results, I’m excited to share with you the best of the best.

I show you what works, why it works, and how to make it work…so that your photography business is a success!

If that sounds good to you, I’d love to have you with me on this free training session!

Join me in this live strategy session as we talk about what it takes to have a successful photography business.
