    Aww heather! I’m totally there with you. I thought I had this whole girlboss thing down but it can be so overwhelming/paralyzingly at the same time!

    Love you and so happy our paths have crossed!! ????

    Thomas Edison once said “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” Well that is how I feel every single day! While in your own small world you may have your moments of doubt I can truly say from afar…your rocking it girl! Keep doing what you do.

    From this vantage point, you are doing a fabulous job! I often wish I could turn my hobby blog into something more – a part time or full time business, but I’ve never taken that leap of faith, and I haven’t consistently worked toward that goal. You, on the other hand, have consistently worked hard, have a lovely website, and beautiful workmanship to show for your efforts. I commend you, and would love to think that one day I may draw on you for inspiration when the time comes.

    Heather…….your “favorite Uncle in Law” checking in.

    I have run my own business for over 30 years, and it has been fairly successful. Here is my take……….

    Just get used to being your own worst critic…..it shows you have what it takes to get to where you want to go.

    The only question is…….”Where do you want to go??” There is not a wrong answer, only a “Heather” answer. Best guess is that every one who loves you will trust the “Heather” answer.

    Love you………..P

    From a mom of a 17 year old Varsity cheerleader, 13 year old avid hunter, 2 year old literally attached to mama 24/7, wife, photographer trying to juggle it all and wanting to cry when people are excited to see their images but you’ve literally had not a second to sit for a sneak peek….I TOTALLY get it!

  6. T.J. says:

    Growing pains are called that for a reason. But we all must grow if we want to succeed. I was there many years ago starting my full-time business, and I’m there again now that I’m reinventing it. Being scared means that you want to succeed with all of your heart and that’s what it takes to make it happen. I have no doubt you’ll be fine. No one ever figured EVERYTHING out, so keep that in mind and try not to sweat the small stuff too much. You’ll ROCK this!

    I’m so proud of you and I’m glad I could be part of your education and part of your life! I’m happy to call you my friend!
