Here are a few simple ideas to get the wheels turning on how to make your business better in the new year.
(Re)connect with a vendor you love.
Who do you want to work with this year? Send them a New Year’s card with some times that will work for a January coffee. Talk about your goals for the new year and inspire one another. Get yourself connected with the people you WANT to work with and keep it up all year long!
Take a risk.
Let this be the year that you stop playing it safe. What have you been wanting to try? Do it. Lean into the apprehension and let it motivate you to get outside of your comfort zone. Share your goals for the universe and don’t stop until they’ve happened.
Find some grace.

Say NO to project that don’t inspire you and say YES to projects that have you shaking in your boots. Remember when you scheduled your first shoot? Terrifying, right? Well, look at you now. You’ve got this. Stop standing in your own way.
