Building Wealth Without Money

  • Ask Anything

This is a weird post to write. You’re probably already thinking “That title makes absolutely no sense… I’m going to stop reading”… DON’T STOP READING. This post shares some of the most valuable advice we were ever given in regards to our finances. I have always had this crazy idea that investing and “wealth management” was only for the rich. Surely you don’t meet with a financial planner without having any money right? Wrong. My idea of financial planning was so warped.

Rangefinder’s 10 To Watch

  • .... Celebrating with Friends in the Desert!

We decided to fly to the desert…. right before the biggest conference of the year. NBD. But hey! “People over pictures” right?! Always.
We are SO excited to spend some time with our sweet friends Jordan, Amy, Anna and Caroline! We’re LOVING the desert weather since at home, there is a pile of SNOW! Again! We’re loving the sunshine and sweet hospitality. Today is “supposed” to be a work day… and we’re working on that (pun intended). Halfway through the morning we realized that Rangefinder’s new digital issue was out!!! AH!

Pros & Cons of Client Friendships

  • Ask Anything

I’m just being honest here…. this wasn’t on the blog calendar! This post is an excerpt from my WPPI talk that I’m working on as I type. No literally…. I’m typing on here, then I switch over to keynote and I add a slide and then I’m back to blogging. It’s just the way my brain is working right about now!! So there are a few things I realized while preparing my talk. I don’t just want to write about MY experience… I want to hear from you guys. If you’re a photographer, you can help me write my WPPI talk and I want you to be a part of this!!! I need your personal experience to validate this point!
