Friends, the gems of our careers. Here's one of mine.


Having friends that tell you the truth, build you up, and inspire you to get better in your work are the gems of your career. Their positive voice can carry you through the times when you feel like giving up.

Have you ever known someone who inspired you to do something big, but they didn't even know it? Or they wouldn't believe you if you told them?


Meet Conni.


She is one of my best friends and a darn good photographer. I trust her with my children. I trust her with my deepest secrets. And miss her to freakin' pieces! Plus she was taking our family photos and I'm gonna miss her special touch on those.


I took these photos a few weeks before my husband and I and our three kids moved away from Washington to be close to our family in Arizona. The sunset on the beach was divine! And our kids were dancing and diving and laughing all around us totally unfazed by the ice-cold water.


Conni and I can talk for hours about photography. BTW, you should check out her Instagram. And one thing she ALWAYS did was support my photography and tell me to keep going.


So many times I remember saying "They didn't turn out like I wanted" and she would say, "Oh my gosh, they're amazing!" And it made me think twice about my attitude towards my work. Because you know what? If it sucked she would've told me... in the nicest way, and helped me figure out how to make it better.


Having friends that tell you the truth, build you up, and inspire you to get better in your work are the gems of your career. Their positive voice can carry you through the times when you feel like giving up.


So who is it for you? And if you don't have that positive voice of encouragement in your entrepreneurial journey let me know!


Leave me a comment below and tell me about your experience as an entrepreneur or artist. Who has supported you? What truths have they reminded you of? What steps have they inspired you to take? I'd love to know.


Also don't forget to follow me on Instagram and Facebook for more inside looks and helpful posts.


xoxo
