i will never get a tattoo. i would need to be numbed from the neck down to do it. i am so afraid of pain, that it kind of wigs me out thinking about paying for pain. BUT if i did get one, i know this sounds narcissistic, but i would get lowercase letters kj, in some really cool font and i would put it in a place that no one would ever see.  🙂 when i am working hard and super proud of myself the letters would stand for kamee june, when i am just being normal mom the letters would remind me of a team of people who somehow make things happen for each other and their little family: kamee and jaren. not so narcissistic, right? 😉 kind of cool? it will never happen because i am a big chicken and because it doesn’t wash off. and what if i change my middle name or something! 😉 just kidding!!

seriously now, every business needs to tattoo itself with symbols, colors, and designs that set it apart from the rest. every business, including your own, no matter how small or big, needs to have a strong and significant brand that figuratively tattoos itself to your market and clients. a photographer’s brand, any small business’s brand, is so incredibly important! so is that small businesses ability to market that brand and herself as an artist. branding isn’t the only important element to being business saavy, however. there is so much that goes in behind the scenes to make a business thrive. this month’s sidekick will share tips and tricks on making yours tick! 😉


this sidekick is going to be all about the business end of a small business: how to make it run, how to follow through with your business practices from top to bottom, how to brand yourself appropriately, and how to market yourself effectively.

it is going to be great, super valuable, and will send you off in the right direction with some new ideas on how to brand, market, run a successful small business front end and back, how to find clients and keep your current ones for years to come, and how to grow as an artist and professional! this workshop isn’t only for the photographer. it’s going to be valuable for all small businesses and will give anyone some great tips on running a successful business of their own!

this sidekick is, however, geared to those who have already started their business practices and are ready for new directions and encouragements!
