Meeting People

Yesterday was a long day, but so worth it. After our friend David Jay's seminar on how to free yourself from being a slave to your business - I learn something new every time I listen to him give this presentation - we met some amazing photographers who I've long admired for the way they shoot and how they run their businesses.

95% of their senior sessions business comes from MYSPACE. They are geniuses. They've got the senior market dialed in Phoenix, AZ and when I first saw the way they reach out to kids it was one of those "Doh! Why didn't I think of that?!" moments. Excited to hang with them when we're in Phoenix next.

Basically, my hero. She hung out with us when she probably could have been doing way better things, and it was such a treat to get to chat with her for a few hours. I love her character and her openness with everyone. She is a mom of two, a published author, a business saavy lady, and she's gonna be on Oprah someday. Plus our computer-geek husbands are like two peas in a pod, so we have that common bond of not understanding a word they say half of the time.

Thanks Me Ra, and thanks Chris, Tammie & crew for hangin' with us. We'll be seeing you soon...

Raya! You are so AMAZING! I just spent an hour looking at your blog and I'm amazed at all that you do and create! You are so talented! I have to come see your house! I want you to come to mine and inspire me with new ideas! Hoping we can make it happen in May! Brian and I just loved our time with you two!
