3 Keys For A Whole New Entrepreneurial Mindset

As human beings, we spend our first 2 decades intentionally growing our skills. Unfortunately, for many of us that growth stops after we enter the workplace. Sure, there is the occasional company training or learning something from a co-worker but there is no continuous personal growth.

I just received this book. It's been a week of learning about money. What I have learned is that most of what I knew is wrong.

He gives awesome speeches what I realized is it's just good common sense. His DVDs or CDs are good,instead of paying 150.00 per ticket. That's steep. Lol

This was an image that I made while on my trip to Grand Teton National Park. Now. While I thought the mountains where heroic in size.

I found that this life-less tree to be one of the most impressive stories of the trip. Why -- I am not quite sure :-)

What do you think?

An amazing set of books by +Pat Flynn I need to make these books -- the first books I read in 2015.

Thanks... Pat!

I've read (or listened to) a lot of books recently, but there are a handful of books that I've went through more than once. Here's a list of 5 books that I re-read in 2014, and why I decided to double up on them.

Interview: Photographer Tommy Martin Discusses His Past and Perspective

There is a great deal more to photography than shooting and editing a picture. There is a great deal of artistry in making an incredible picture. It’s that creative skill which defines a photographer as remarkable — Tommy Martin is that remarkable photographer.

As I combed through Martin’s site, it was one amazing image after another. In many of Tommy’s images, you find this quite intimacy; which creates a familiar — emotional — connection. This is the sentiment that any visual storyteller covets.

Martin is not an over-night success. Tommy has been developing his craft for over a decade and he shares some of those experiences with the EventualProPhotographer community.

This is an amazing book on learning how and why to invest your hard earned money. +Tony Robbins​ actually lists a bunch of investment myths.

Good read. #entrepreneurs

3 Strategies For Creating Goals That Matter To You

The 2 most important questions you can ask yourself are:

1. What do I want to get out of my life?
2. What can I offer the World in return for getting the life I want?

What are your thoughts?

This is a good list of posts from +Michael Hyatt -- I agree that the best way to approach any project is one step at a time. Bt what is equally important is having a written plan.

Writing plans and goals down makes it more tangible -- hence more realistic. 

#productivity  
Like a lot of you, I take time at the end of every year to review and assess my last twelve months—and that includes my blog. One of the things I do is review my top posts. Overall, my traffic is up 19.7 percent, and I’m always interested in what’s working and why. It helps […]

Interview: Rocco Ceselin Discusses His Growth As A Photographer

My Challenge

There are two topics that Rocco mentioned that I would like to touch on:

Being Organized

Organization or the lack thereof can be the difference between being a successful working photographer or not. Think about it as a photographer you need to send out email blasts, email editors, write proposals, etc. 

So having a system that allows you to stay on top of your busy day it critical.

So get organized. Start small and use an application like Evernote.

Creating New Projects

Let's face it when you are working with a client you are, ultimately, executing their vision. So when do you get the opportunity to be the shot-caller? Simple, when you create personal projects.

These projects can not only showcase your creativity, but it allows you to explore ideas and techniques that you would never try with a client.

So create a plan and push yourself -- creatively.

#photography  
I love interviewing working photographers. There is a uniqueness about their perspective when it comes to the business of being a professional creative.  Rocco Ceselin is a working photographer based out of California. Ceselin work is remarkable, but it's his photographic frame of reference that I connected with the most. I rarely ask a photographer what gear they use or what software is being used in post. Why, because photograph...

Introduction

I used to day-dream about my future. I remember flipping through National Geographic magazines. I would fantasize about being the amazing travel writer who brought those stories to life.

Unfortunately, life did not care much for my dreams. So I did what was expected: I graduated, I got a job, I got married. I started a family and bought a house. I was living the "American Dream?" So why was I unhappy with my success?

Unclear on why I was unhappy I asked myself these two very important questions:

  1. What do I want to get out of my life?
  2. What can I offer the World in return for getting the life I want?

After some deliberation, I realized I was not unhappy with my success. I was unhappy because I was successful at the wrong things. Worse I was giving more value to my work than my family and my forgotten dreams.

So I spent a few days answering these two very important -- carefully and completely. Answering these questions gave more clarity on setting goals that really mattered to me. The questions also allowed me to make a better plan, in the pursuit of my dreams.
