The #1 questions people ask me when I attend a speaking engagement or conference is “Do you like your short hair?” or “Are you and your sister talking?” after my sister chopped off my hair and I hated it. Yes. I am talking about a real adult relationship between two women who are related, not some childhood story where my sister cut my bangs.
But for those of you who are wondering, Yes, I love my short hair and my sister. We are closer than ever. Thankyouverymuch.
Okay, the second most common question I get is about my photography. As a total amateur and someone who is honest, a little insecure about my photography skills, it makes my little heart soar when people think I know what I am doing in the photo department.
Words of affirmation are my love language people. “What settings do you use on your DSLR Camera?”
Sadly, I know enough to be dangerous on my camera, but not enough to explain it. “Did you take a photography class?”
Yes. I took an online class but I think I only completed half of it. If there would have been a test I am certain I would have scored a C-.
As someone who resisted learning about photography for many years, I have grown to really love it. When my camera broke this past year I felt so unmotivated to tackle projects. Shooting the pictures makes the piece come to life and I was sad to be without that final step in my furniture flipping process.
If you have a furniture flipping business the single most important thing you can do is learn your way around your camera. This is one item that I guarantee will increase your business.
My photos have been featured on The Today Show’s website, The Huffington Post (twice!), Buzzfeed, and much more nationally know sites. Not bad for a C- student.
