“I know you've shared about feeling burnt out on Insta, but those feelings are often WAY worse than we share on Insta. So just know I'm thinking of you, and hoping you're getting the time and space + rejuvenation you need!” ✨ One of my legal clients messaged me this early this morning. I’ve clearly been a lot more nonchalant about posting on social media this month and have been taking some much needed time to recoup from my two month whirlwind of photographing weddings, traveling all over the country for conferences, and doing the most legal work I’ve even done for clients with TLP. 💪🏼 Her message just really rang true with me. Its OKAY to take a little break every once in a while. And, the first 6 months of this year just hit me hard in so many ways that I needed some time to myself to really reflect on what I want for myself and my loved ones. 🧐 I’ve definitely got the time, space, and rejuvenation I need to now propel forward with The Legal Paige in all kinds of new ways! I’m planning on bulking up the TLP Shop with more contract templates for you all, adding in new screen flows of me walking through your contract so that when you buy its like I’m right there sitting down with you helping you get that puppy up and ready for clients to sign, and also lining up some bomb ass podcast guests for @thelegalpaigepodcast. 🎙 All in all, I’m doing really good people! And thank you so much to everyone who’s reached out, sent me a DM, or just shot me a little note to let me know they’re there. This whole entrepreneur online thing is a little lonely at times, so its awesome having that virtual support team in place. 🥰 Love you all!
Woke up feeling all kinds of sassy and confident this morning! Yesterday’s @hustleandflowofficial workshop in Denver was simply incredible. From learning all about marketing strategies, email communication with clients, when to chat about your fees, website dos and don’ts, mental health in the wedding industry, how to grow from failure, and of course #scaredmoneydontmakemoney ! I’ve got all kinds of ideas rolling around in my brain and cannot wait to bring some to life. Are you ready for em?! ✨ P.S. I’m exploring Denver today if you’ve got any suggestions fire em my way!
F**k yes client. The f**king middle. F**k no client. — Have you heard of this concept?! If not, you better go follow @hustleandflowofficial right NOW. I'm not gonna give you the deets, you've gotta figure that out on your own by listening to Brittani and Jon and going to a workshop. It’s worth it already x10 and we aren’t even to the lunch break. Right now I'm in Denver attending the Hustle & Flow OG workshop with tons of other photographers and wedding industry professionals and these two hosts are totally blowing my mind. Like, there are so sooooo many fluffy workshops out there that coddle you and tell you to replicate the strategy that made them successful. Nope, not this one. Its all real talk and no bullshit. The nitty gritty business plan you NEED to get more clients and make MO MONEYYY! Can I get a hell yes?!
Photographer Paige has officially completed her final wedding of the 2019 season! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What a ride. The past 6 years of weddings from May-October in Montana has given me so much joy. I’ve been honored to shoot some pretty incredible couples and deliver them beautiful images to remember their special days. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve spent basically every weekend behind my camera during the summer. I sweated buckets, I cried, I spent hours behind my computer culling and editing, I worked with tons of other photogs as second shooters, my feet got super dirty running around, I got lots of mosquito bites and sunburns... literally everything that happened could and I loved EVERY SECOND! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now, it’s time to close the wedding photography doors for a little while until next summer and focus solely on The Legal Paige! I made it a point to only take on under 10 weddings this summer, and I ended up booking them all back to back. So, July 13th was my final one for 2019. It feels soooooo good to now have the rest of the summer to myself (and get my Saturday’s back)! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I cannot wait to have the next year off to go full force with TLP and bring you all some awesome new offerings. And, not having to do 2 full-time jobs is also gonna be sweet (and likely a big adjustment since my brain has been multi-tasking with two for so long now)!
I know, I know, I’ve been off the grid. For literally almost two weeks. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But it felt SO GOOD to get away for a little while as my summer schedule has been crazy nuts. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I miss you all and want to know what you’ve been up to! How was your 4th?! Any exciting adventures?! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ll tell you all about my last two weeks tomorrow on LIVE! Stay tuned. Xoxo
I had a breakdown last night. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yup, that's right. I may seem like I've got it all together but really I've been struggling pretty hard the past month. Plenty of tears and plenty of hard situations to work past. Ugh, being an entrepreneur is so challenging at times. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ BUT, I woke up this morning and told myself that today was a new day. I walked into my conference knowing that I was going to deliver two breakout sessions about doing a legal audit on my attendees' creative businesses and SO MUCH FIRE came upon me. I mean, if that doesn't tell you that I freakin love talking about the law and am fueled by my passion, I don't know what does! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And, then this happened. I wore this jumper from @galmeetsglam and got a ton of compliments. Each person who commented had NO IDEA what that meant to me. I loved this jumper soooooo much when I saw it online, but when I ordered it the size didn't fit, I felt yucky about myself, and didn't feel good about my presence at all. But, I didn't want that to be the end of the situation just because I am constantly battling self-confidence and my size (what I call the stupid societal numbering system). So I ordered a new one. Today, I wore this size 16 (yup, I just said that on social media) proudly. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hence, every mention by some sweet attendee today warmed my heart beyond measure. I went from blah to cheery in a matter of 12 hours. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My charge to you today is this: compliment someone. Anyone. Even if they seem like they're doing okay, you never know whats going on under the surface. You might just make their day and help them smile a little extra. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #bekind #kindness
You’re beginning to realize that your business isn’t exactly the “dream job” you were hoping it’d be. And now that you think of it...you’ve been working around the clock only to feel stressed out, insecure, and unsure if you’re even really running your business the right way. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Honestly, it makes you feel defeated (and tired). Like you’re just spinning your wheels in hopes that your business will take off and all the blood, sweat, and tears will *finally* be worth it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But, it doesn’t have to be like that. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Can you imagine running a business that makes you feel energized, empowered, and confident? How would it feel to have the freedom to do what you love without all the stress? And to have a STRONG legal foundation in place that allows you to sleep better at night knowing you are protected? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And above all that, what would it feel like to have a CLEAR, step-by-step path for making your business legal, protected, and legit once and for all? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It really is possible. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Lots of people will continue trying to piece together a legal foundation from Google and questionable advice from their friends. They’ll keep avoiding getting their biz back end in check (while crossing their fingers that no client drama will ensue). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That’s a mistake. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But that’s not you. You’re ready to take things into your own hands, master a legal strategy that will serve you for the rest of your career, and gain back a sense of confidence and peace-of-mind in your business. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ All this is possible...you just need to learn a few more skills. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And they’re all available today ONLY! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sign up for The Ready Set Legal Course (I’m so excited to welcome you in!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You only have until 10 PM MST tonight to make your choice.
