For the past four years, we lived double lives.
Elementary school teachers by day.
Photographers by night and weekend.
Until this year.
When we made the leap.
From our day job to our dream job.
We know what you’re thinking, Good for you, but it’s not possible for me.
We really do.
Because, at one time, we thought the same thing.
But it is possible.
There is hope.
There’s no magic formula.
There’s no “get full-time quick” scheme.
It doesn’t happen over night, and you don’t want it to. Trust us.
But it can happen.
We’re living proof.
But you have to have a plan.
You have to be honest with yourself.
You have to be willing to work harder than everyone else.
Last week, we went LIVE online to share our ten tips for “Making the Leap” from part-time to full-time.
Next week, we’ll begin a brand new series called “Making the Leap” designed just for YOU.
We’ll go into more detail about the ten steps we took and we’ll answer your questions, too.
