"David, Great photos. I'd suggest going for a solid, if not extreme, niche. On your site, it says you do landscapes, family portraits, pet portraits, and events. It's too generic. Brand yourself in a niche that you love. If landscapes are…"

Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
After I read the book 48 Days, I was curious to find out more. So I google searched 48 Days and found my way to 48Days.net. By being a part of this community I would like to take advantage of networking opportunities as well as meet other people who share my ambition towards a fulfililng career.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I am currently employed with the City of Gallatin, TN. I am an employee. However, I soon plan to become self-employed too when I launch my photography website in the summer of 2011.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I would like to be a photographer and sell my prints around the world.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
To be financially sound, and to make the people around me happy.
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
I am fueled by people saying that I cannot do it and also by my own doubts. I know I can prove others and myself wrong and succeed.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?

I like that concept. This may be blasphemy being that you are a photographer but I heard of a pretty cool app which may help you to build your brand. It was an app that this couple developed for their wedding where the guests could take the pictures with their smart phones and the pictures are all compiled on a website. You could modify your concept and develop your own app and the smart phone photos will be added to the event page on your site. Then you could sell your photos on the same page. The benefits is that all the guests will want to visit your site to see the photos and they can see your photos (which will be a lot better quality) and they can buy them.

Hi David,

 

 Thanks for the comments, very much appreciated. Yes, that was a Beatles tune but they did not use the hammered dulcimer on that song. There were a couple of songs that I think they used an Indian Santoor which is the ancestor to the American hammered dulcimer.

David -

Thanks for joining our Pursuing Your Calling group!

I chuckled when I read your profile. I like your 'fuel' of trying to prove others wrong when they say you can't do something. This works for me as well :)

What's the focus of your photography? Is it outdoor pics? People? Something else?

Brent

Hello David,

I try to take time each week to welcome new members to 48Days.Net. So, let me say "welcome" to you! I know you will find this to be a great site filled with people who are experiencing true success in both life and work.

Also, I'd like to point out that one of the best places to connect with other liked-minded people here is in the GROUPS section. There are groups for just about every interest you can think of, and if you can't find a group that interests you, you can start one. Groups are my favorite part of 48Days.Net!

Finally, if you happen to be a speaker or author (or want to become either), check out these two groups. They are two of the most popular groups on the site because of all the great conversation taking place:

* Speak It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Speakers!
* Write It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Writers!

Again, enjoy 48Days.Net. It's a great place to be!

Live it forward,
Kent Julian
