I've been a full time business owner for almost 4 years now ... very soon I'll be entering the 5th year of being a full time photographer. In all of that time I've used all of the skills and knowledge I have from 20 years in the corporate sector and I've applied them to my business. As you would expect I've also spent large amounts of time refining my photo skills in all areas. Conceptualisation, shooting, editing, business skills etc.
We live in an incredible age where we have a huge amount of resource available at our finger tips ... things that we can use to our advantage to both break up the day and make ourselves better.
If you Google habits of successful people, you'll get a load of answers, but it at the core it looks something like this. Subscribe to them or not it's your choice.
Down on the left almost in the middle is Learn Everyday ... now up until now I've been in learning Photography and all things photographic. So now I'm challenging that and I just want to learn about something random. One of the best places to learn things ( that will not take forever and a day ) is TED. Many of the talks are 15 mins or less, great for a coffee break, you can even do it on your phone with a coffee, so it's away from your desk. if you fancy being more active if you use TuneIn Radio on your phone you can stream the audio pod casts. Yesterday I learnt all about why one person things we are the only real life in the galaxy ( it's a great listen but to save you time he thinks it's a fluke )
Today I've caught up all about the fear of rejection and how one man turned it into a game ... and in some ways won.
Later today, or tomorrow who know what, I'm just clicking on random titles, things that interest me but are not necessarily related to business or photography.
