"Videography is a Dying Industry"

(Disclaimer: You have probably heard this story before, but it’s one of my favorites, so I will most likely keep retelling it every single year. )​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

A little over two years ago I was sitting in an accountant’s office, and the accountant told me that “Videotography” (his words – not mine) was “a dying industry”.

The accountant told me I should stay in my current job for five more years, and then possibly think about making the switch to doing photography and video full-time.

Needless to say, I did not take his advice.  

After discussing the meeting with Ricky I very politely asked for our tax papers back, told the accountant we would be using someone else, and submitted my two-weeks notice the following day.

- Cut to Two Years Later –

I have a job I love that allows me to spend more time with family and friends. And I have entirely stopped using my inhaler because my anxiety-induced asthma is gone.

I still get to work with my old co-workers (which is a huge answered prayer) and with a mission I love (City Rescue Mission and the Rise Cafe).

 … AND we’ve hired a new accountant that is amazing and believes in my dreams!

If there’s something you want to do and people are telling you that you can’t, figure out a way to do it and find new people to talk to.

Life is too short!
