In 2015, I was fired by my best friend, with my 6 months pregnant wife relying on me to take care of her and our soon to be born son…
That was the start of my entrepreneurial journey.
I woke up in cold sweats during this time, trying to figure out how to take care of my family.
Bills were coming.
Our baby kept growing.
And the pressure kept on mounting.
“What the hell am I going to do!” Were my first thoughts each morning.
Until, one day, after helping a friend shoot a wedding, I was told, “you take good photos.”
To which I replied, “Yes, I do!”
With no plan at all, I started telling everyone I was a professional photographer, though I was far from it at the time!
Feeling like a duck kicking it’s feet to stay above the water, I started to learn how to run a business.
While it fixed some of the immediate bills, I knew that I wasn’t at a place to make it my full-time gig, so I found the first corporate job I could land, which happened to be one I love.
