You started your photo business for the freedom. BUT...
Now your business is running you.
✔ You're spinning in a million directions, jumping between editing and posting and emails (and trying to manage kids while you're at it).
✔ You feel like you're working constantly, never caught up, always putting out fires. The mom guilt for missing family time is getting heavy.
✔ You want to raise your prices, but are afraid you will lose clients. And you're not sure you're even charging the right amount to begin with.
✔ You decided to be a business owner for the freedom, but right now your business feels like anything but freeing.
It's time to face facts:
Your business isn't supporting you.
And you're afraid you might be at a breaking point. You're ready to have someone show you the way to profitable work-life balance. You know it's possible, you just don't know how to get there.TELL ME MORE

"I always thought I had to shoot a ton, post on Instagram 5x a week, and respond to emails 24/7 just to survive. Everything just felt a mess.
BBA taught me that I can do less. My passion for photography has returned and my clients are happier too.
I also learned how to raise my prices and gain so much more personal freedom. Turns out, weekends off are freaking amazing!"
-Erin Fox Photo
"I feel like this includes a lot more content that most courses I've taken. I pretty much binged the lessons. I wanted to know what you would say next!"
The spreadsheet you provided in the 'Know Your Numbers' lesson alone would be worth purchasing the course!"
