It's a new season, and I'm taking the time to refresh my direction, my image, my business. Due to a wonderful book by Zig Ziglar and some pointers from my beautiful daughter, Rachel Wakefield, I've taken a look at the scattered mess I had and decided to reorganize and refocus to make everything a little better and a little clearer.
I asked myself: what do I do best? And what are my interests? I've got the training and experience in graphic design, and I've always had the love of animals and nature. My photography has improved over the last couple of years, and I've really enjoyed shooting everything from dogs and cats to cattle and alpacas.
Zig Ziglar's big advice was to "give people what they want."
So today I'm introducing 4footphoto.com, where I'll advertise and display my animal photography.
And in my graphic design, I'll concentrate on creating commercially usable images for the public.
I'll also learn to take advantage of the many social media options out there for marketing and networking.
This is a great country, where anyone who works hard can achieve success.
I, for one, am willing to try!
