Wow- it was such an exciting and emotional day yesterday. Today I am still celebrating!
If you are connected to my Facebook page either through my business or on my personal side, you heard all about the excitement, but just in case you missed it, I will gladly fill you in!
It started.. technically a few years ago with a photographer named Kelly Brown – I have watched her for years grow and educate via the web. The last class I was able to watch her teach on-line was through Creative Live. I grew to love her more… not because of just her photo abilities but because she has such a kind, warm heart and soul. Most not be aware but the photo industry can be a mouse in the middle of a cat fight, but there are some who are simply amazing and so giving in their words and talent… and Kelly is one of those.
When Creative Live is hosting a workshop, there is usually an audience that is there to be along side with that instructor- which is a pretty big deal. Imagine you like playing the piano and suddenly get to hang out and learn directly with Elton John- it is a pretty big deal! A few weeks ago when the Kelly Brown Bootcamp Class was announced I registered and planned it out in my calendar to watch the class. I knew this class was something that I needed at this time in my photography- it was like a reset button for me. Last week I saw a post that they were accepting applications for people to apply to be in the audience. Ah – what the heck- I had nothing to loose and who knows, maybe I’ll get lucky!
Two days ago, I made a post on my facebook page sharing her class and making a comment that I had applied and that a girl could dream to win a seat….. well to my surprise I received an email stating I was 1 of the 10 selected to be in the audience in Seattle, WA for Kelly’s course. The words that escaped my mouth were extreme, I started crying, clapping, dancing, and booty shaked till I hurt my back! I could not believe it. I read that email 20 times! And then I learned that Kelly hand picked the attendees herself. Oh man… I was on cloud 9!
But now here comes the hard part… could I actually GET there. Time wise is no problem… the cost of covering flight, hotel, shuttle to and from airport and dinners… now there is the issue. The past 2 months have been nothing but a struggle in the business and there is no secret money capsule anywhere on my property. The email stated we had 48 hours to give a confirmation if we are able to make it to the class.
So – I told myself that the best that I could is TRY to make it happen and if by the end of tonight, that I tried my best and to be happy with that.
