I've been doing a lot of thinking, lately.
I'm really, really contemplating whether 2011 is the year for me to become an entrepreneur...to maybe, possibly, perhaps embark upon starting a photography business.
Some days, I think I'm good enough to do it...then other days, most days, the self-doubt creeps in. I wonder, "Really? How could you think you're good enough to do this?!" and my concern about running a business begins to overwhelm me and then I shove this idea to the back burner again.
Only to have it slowly inch it's way back into the forefront of my mind...
So many questions...what to charge?
...what would I name my business?
...how would I market myself?
...what would my "niche" be?
...can I handle the criticism?
...will I be able to keep my vision of "quality photos made affordable"?
...is it worth it to take out a small business loan to get started?
...am I organized enough to make it work?
...how on earth will I ever wrap my mind around photoshop?
I love photography. LOVE it. I love snapping photos, adjusting settings, composing subjects and then downloading them and seeing what I've captured. Who I've captured.
And if I've captured the "real" them.
So...will this be the year?
We shall see...
