Today I took another big step in the business world … I met with my CPA. This is the first time I’ve met with a CPA and probably should have a long time ago. They are going to help me do my personal and business stuff. One thing that came out of this meeting today was my need to get Quick Books so that I can accurately know whats going on with the business and upgrade out of my excel spreadsheet! 🙂
Its pretty exciting to see any progress, so I’m looking forward to getting started on this journey. They are going to be training me on how to use it by helping me input all of my stuff from last year. This way I have the ability to compare 2012 to 2011 easily, and I learn how to do it correctly at the same time.
In other news, I have multiple clients to get back to today about shoots. I’ve had multiple jewelry stores contact me this week about potential shoots, which is flat out amazing! Its amazing to me how when you get what you think is bad news, the universe provides exactly what you need. I’m honestly still looking around at day job options right now because I am so scared of trying to do photography full time and being able to pay all of our bills with it. But, every time I get a call, or email, from a potential client it makes me really think hard about it. I know I want photography to eventually be my “career” and only “job,” but I do worry about me being ready right now. My original goal was to make the transition by the end of 2012, but, we’ll see how it all plays out. 🙂
I hope you all have a fantastic Wednesday!!
