During the 2008 recession I lost my job and at the time I thought it was the worst thing that could have happened. But I quickly realized it was a blessing in disguise. It started my adventure as an entrepreneur and it gave me the time and the confidence to launch my own photography business.
Now, here I set, about to experience the worst month of business ever and yet all I keep thinking is “What blessing in disguise do I have coming from this?” Now don’t get me wrong, I’m stressed out and nervous that I’ve got bills to pay yet I won’t be getting a paycheck from either of my businesses this month. No one is booking weddings or photo shoots, weddings are getting postponed or canceled, no one is shopping my KEEP Boutique right now. It’s a scary time. But I have to believe that something new and positive will come from it. Will it happen right away? Probably not since April will be another month with no income. But I have to believe eventually something amazing will come of it. So....as I close in with just a couple days left of the month to try and squeeze in a few last minute sales to hopefully make something, I’m going to let go of the outcome because I can’t control it. Instead I’m going to be thankful that I’m able to be home with my kids everyday and look forward to whatever hidden blessing this is going to give me down the road. Good luck to those of you who are in the same boat as me this month and most likely will be next month. Here’s to hoping stimulus checks come soon and people start shopping and lets hope self employed peeps get approved for unemployment so we can pay the bills and start supporting other businesses too. ❤️ - 32 minutes ago
