I love helping people out.  It’s a fault of mine, actually…I will bend over backwards to help anyone I can.  Sometimes too much.  I can get really passionate about it, in fact.  Obsessive.

But sometimes, it works out!  Several months ago, someone left a horrible comment on a blog I was reading: GO{4}PRO Photography.  Here was a photographer taking time out of her busy life to help other budding photographers blossom.  The comment was about her spelling and grammar, which weren’t the best.  I quickly emailed her and offered to edit her posts for her.  People can be so mean and I wanted to balance it out by being nice, however I could.

I heard back from Leah and things started rolling right along.  I soon discovered that Leah was in Portland!  Such a sweet person who has a hugely giving attitude, I felt honored to be helping her.  When she mentioned she needed help getting her Go{4}Pro Shop up and running, I was excited to help.  In our discussions, I jokingly said she needed to hurry up and become rich and famous so she could hire me as her assistant.  As the saying goes, be careful what you wish for, because I’m now her Studio Manager!  It’s going to be a great way to help get my creative juices going on the side.

The future is bright and going well!  I feel like the sun is coming out from behind the clouds and cannot wait to see what comes.  God truly knows what He is doing!

And in honor of the shop getting up and running, Leah’s hosting a giveaway!

Tons of great prizes…if you are a photographer or aspiring or just dreaming, heck, even non-photographers can benefit if you are opening a small business yourself!  Go and enter!
