My refrigerator doubles as a self-help book.
For years, every time I go for a snack, I see the same motivational magnets…
“What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?”
“Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly.”
Slow starter that I am, I systematically ignore them in favor of ice cream, which requires no effort and tastes like instant success every time.
Thing is, when you’re scared that what you really want might be out of reach, it’s much easier to buy a magnet and feel inspired… than it is to actually reach.
Truth is, what I want is to be a professional photographer and branch out from stock. I’d like to shoot family portraits and headshots, do some commercial photography, try out food photography, do some weddings, and dive into a few personal documentary projects.
The Breakfast Stock Club newsletter has been life-changing for me. Being there at the start of your stock photo journey and taking the beginning steps together with you has been my biggest “motivational magnet.”
But it’s time to move on. It’s time to put my fears aside and reach.
So to that end, I’m going to discontinue the Breakfast Stock Club free newsletter this week, on the last Friday of November, to make time for more photo projects.
And that’s where you come in…
If you’ve been hemming and hawing about becoming a Premium Member, now’s the time for you to reach, too. In fact, now’s the only time to reach because by the end of the week, the free version of this e-letter will be no more. Only paid subscribers will continue to receive weekly stock photography advice in their inbox.
As a Breakfast Stock Club Premium member, you will continue to get monthly motivation in Challenges, group reviews by professional stock photographers, monthly “Roadmaps” to keep you going in the right direction shooting stock-worthy subjects, custom Lightroom video lessons from stock photographer Shelly Perry, and lots of extras on your member page. Try it out for the month of December and watch your ability and stock sales grow, here.
This is not the end of your journey. I invite you to come with me. Let’s take the motivational magnets off of the fridge and start reaching for what we really want.
If, however, you know you need that extra push to keep you moving forward, then continue the journey as a Breakfast Stock Club Premium member, here.
Most importantly, I want to say THANK YOU for sharing your success, motivating me, and making me smile over the past three years. You have shown me, time and again, what is possible when we put our minds to something.
The time has come to reach for it.
