Stepping Up

By Strictly Business Blog

In my last post, I challenged us all to figure out what our assumptions are.  As one of my first acts of 2011, I’m going to share some of the assumptions on my list. Some assumptions I’m questioning: I am a photographer – Why? – What does that really mean? – What else am I? – What else do I want to do?
