Terrific Tuesday

Today is going to be so awesome! 🙂 I officially completed week 1 of couch to 5k, I weighed in this morning down 12 lbs total, I have a meeting with the amazing Scarlett from Scarlett’s Web about my new website, and I have a meeting with Living Social about the possibility of running a deal with them.

I’m so excited to get this day kicked off that I am literally all giddy!  First off, waking up this morning to see that I’m down 12 pounds so far in 2012 was just amazing.  It makes everything so much easier when you can see the results everyday.  I’ve been really strict with my calorie intake and I just completed week 1 of couch to 5k yesterday.  So, its not something that is easy at all.  I’ve completely changed my lifestyle cold turkey over night.  I’m waiting on a crash at some point where I break down and eat like a bucket of fried chicken followed by an entire box of oreos … it feels inevitable.  Hopefully I can rock this new lifestyle hardcore enough that the occasional cheat day doesn’t matter. 🙂

The real excitement today though, is meeting with Scarlett.  I am so over the moon excited about this that I can’t stop talking about it.  I truly, deep down, believe that I’m losing clients because of my website.  Right now its just slideshows of images.  It showcases the very thing that makes all photographers the same.  My vision with the new website is to showcase me: why I am a photographer, what it means to me, what things do I like, who I am as a person, what motivates me.  These things are very important to what I feel like is a great website.  I want a potential client to feel like they’ve known me forever and they are a friend after spending 5-10 minutes on my website.  I am SO excited to get this journey started.

Finally, this afternoon I’m meeting with Living Social.  I really feel like this could be an amazing thing to get exposure, but I have to keep in mind that its marketing.  I’m paying for that marketing with my time.  It is essential to get a deal worked out that doesn’t overload me, and that allows me to make some profit.  Hopefully this can be worked out and I can pursue this idea more.  I’ve been thinking about ideas for this and am really excited to actually talk in depth to them about how it all works.

As you can see, my day is SLAMMED.  What are you all getting into today?  Hows 2012 been for you so far?

I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday!!

  1. I love the idea about the website Matt! I have to agree 100% with you on making it personal. It was “personal” that got you to this point, right? Personal passion, personal hobby, personal relationships. Keep us posted on the progress (running, website, and LivingSocial)! 🙂
