I was never fortunate enough to live in the same town as my grandparents growing up. We moved quite a few times throughout my childhood and we lived anywhere from 20 mins to 20 hours from them. It didn't stop us from being close though. We would write and call each other often, long before the days of FaceTime or cell phones for that matter. They both retired very early (52 & 56), so they would come visit often and for weeks at a time! But when I was 26, as they were getting older, they moved to where my family had settled, so we could be closer and care for them. My grandfather would always say, "It's a magical time" with such a grin on his face! And it was!! My husband and I would bike in the evenings over to their new house. We would stop in just to say hello and talk about our day before continuing our bike ride back home to make dinner. It was amazing to be so close and see each other so easily! My grandfather left us 7 years ago today, but I will forever remember that magical time.

William Shakespeare said, "Be not afraid of greatness: Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them."

To my entrepreneur friends trying to achieve greatness... I am with you in the fight! Sometimes we hold ourselves back for fear of making a mistake, being judged by others, or from fear of the unknown. I'm guilty of it far too often. But, if there is any type of PEARL OF WISDOM I've learned from living an #entrepreneurlife, it's that the fight often lies within ourselves. It's tough to champion ourselves every single day with blind faith that it will all work out. There is no crystal ball in the business world, just our own perseverance to make our dreams become a reality! You may be alone on your path, but you are not alone in the fight! -

Do you ever feel like you keep adding to your to-do list 10X's faster than you're crossing off tasks!?!?! I know the feeling too... you're overwhelmed. It can happen pretty easily for a wedding photographer given the dozen of hats we wear each day! Sometimes those to-do lists can do very little for your productivity if you don't have a PLAN in place to execute them. -

A change in latitude really does help my attitude! Beach days are the best days! I love getting away with my family, taking time to connect with each other and create new memories. But now I am BACK in the office... ready to tackle my new found goals and help my clients kick some butt in their wedding photography business! -

Do you keep a travel journal? My husband and I started a journal detailing the story of how we fell in love shortly after we met. We had been dating for two months, were already in love, and he gave me a journal and said we need to write down our story. So we did. From then on we have journaled about our trips, travels, and vacations... but you get so busy having fun while you're away that you forget or are just too wiped out at the end of the day to journal. And when you get back it can be hard to remember everything.
-
So, our workaround is... at dinner each evening we jot down (often on a dinner napkin) a quick timeline of what we did that day or funny things that happened so we can remember to journal about it when we get home. Then, we alternate writing the days in our journal. It's the easiest way we have found to document our time and get it done as soon as possible. -
Today, it's my turn. I'm busy playing journal catch up from our jam-packed week of fun and trying to decipher the shrimp stained notes. And as any photographer understands, I have a bazillion vacation photos waiting to be edited when I'm done journalling.

My secret weapon to stay organized and be productive in my business (and my life, for that matter) is TRELLO! It’s a project management application that helps you stay on top of your game. AND it’s absolutely free! My favorite part is that it allows me to see my whole process and my tasks visually in a way that I can't easily achieve with paper. When I organize a workflow, or project, or even a lengthly task with Trello, it gives me the mental freedom to execute it like a pro. I LOVE it! If you’re going crazy keeping your tasks in order… check it out! Trust me, you'll be glad you did!

A salty sea breeze, blue skies and the sounds of waves crashing can make a world of difference to a #smallbusinessowner. I love the fresh perspective I gain by getting out of my routine and soaking up life in a new place!! And yes, I know I really shouldn't think about my business while on vacation with my family, but it's just part of the #entrepreneur brain... in a good way! When I allow myself to decompress and relax, it makes it pretty easy for new, inspired ideas to pop into my head. I can't wait to put them into action! How do you free up mental space and gain a fresh perspective? -

Taking a BREAK is the best thing you can do for your business!! At some point, you will experience stress, burn out, or feel overwhelmed. A break allows your MIND and SOUL to take a break, refocus, and sharpen for the days ahead. This week, I reset. Next week I kick some butt back in the office! What are you doing to reset yourself, my friend?

You can never play it too safe with the sun. Our family lathers on the sunblock every two hours! What can I say? I am a fair complected, freckled, redhead... so wearing an SPF 50 has always been a must for me. If not, I would be a lobster red in minutes. Then, I married a man who is even more sensitive to the sun than I am. Yet, our blonde little beach babe gets a nice golden tan even with his SPF 50 sun lotion on! Go figure. Even with all my years of sun protection... I was just diagnosed with #skincancer this past April! I'm thankful to say they were able to remove the entire tumor, but now I've even more protective of my family's skin. -
Be proactive with your skin this Summer. Don't forget to lather up even if you're only out in the sun for a brief period. And remember to get deep into your hairline! That is where skin cancer found me. Doing so really could SAVE YOUR LIFE one day! -

Growing up... my brother, sister, and I went with our mom, dad, grandma, and grandpa to the Outer Banks of North Carolina every single summer. In fact, it didn't feel like Summer until we were body surfing some waves, building sandcastles, and having family mini golf competitions at night. Those are the Summer childhood memories I will forever cherish. And now, I'm so thankful I get to create new memories with my husband and son alongside my mom and grandma. -
