It all started on kijiji…
Seriously, that’s pretty much exactly where my career as a photographer began; posting photography ads on the sketchiest part of the internet (which accidentally ended in my favour (you’ll have to ask me more about this one when we meet!)) and pinning up wedding photography posters with tearaway website tabs without permission at any Starbucks I could find.
Although, if we want to go way back, then I know that my journey as a creative entrepreneur started long before then.
I should have known a very long time ago while I was either sewing my own purses in my basement, designing and ironing-on my own logo onto sweatshirts (which actually turned out to be the same name as a gas station toilet holder company…I’m still haunted by this when I use a gas station bathroom and see the brand name in my journeys nowadays ), or writing my own newsletters and passing them out to all of our neighbours, that I would have become an entrepreneur when I got older.
Somewhere along the lines (thanks, adulthood) I lost the belief that I needed to be more than myself in order to have something to offer.
