WHEN: October 12, 2015 9am-5pm
WHO: Presented by Prints Charming Photography's Award-winning Photographer & Creative Director - Brian Geraths
WHY: In detail...
I love standing in the front of a thrilling roller coaster ride, waving others through so that I can sit in the very front. Being in the front is not about control, it is pure exhilaration in not knowing what is next.
Little did I know, that hanging the proverbial shingle "Prints Charming Photography" would be such a relative comparison to an invigorating thrill-ride!
Before I stopped "shooting on the side" I attended a sales presentation for photographers which revealed some alarming statistics. In 1995, those numbers showed that "Mom & Pop" (now dubbed boutique) Portrait Studios out-fail even restaurants!"
I had just given my district manager three weeks notice that I'd be cashing in my 401K - giving up nearly 20 years in food retail. It sounded like a pretty amazing ride, and has never ceased to deliver a thrill.
As a retail manager I was yielding far more taxable income, but had NO time to travel with it. After burning through my 401K to leap from a half-built platform, I had numerous travel-related jobs come at me. Japan, The Bahamas, New Zealand (where I imported my INCREDIBLE partner Cathy from), BC, Winnipeg & Toronto Canada, Australia, Kenya and numerous US States.
I was suddenly afforded exotic travel and paid to rack up my airline miles?.. PINCH ME!..
Some of us have a gift of creativity, others organization, but survival in this business takes FAR more than technical aptitude. 10 solid years of business growth from 25% to 75% took me to the steepest, hair-blowing plummet in 2007. (distilled story CLICK HERE)
How I survived it all without a foreclosure, bankruptcy or short-selling my house is nothing shy of a miracle. Now experiencing rapid growth with a fully-evolved set of systems has me prepared to weather any ride.
No matter how long you've been in business, it is my hope that you'll find at least one, 'worth-the-price-of-admission" nugget, every hour of the six that we'll share.
With 20-years in a systems-driven career in retail management, I replicated, tweaked and completely revised the tools needed to simplify how I do business as a photographer.
