I run 4 businesses full time in less than 40 hours a week. I sleep in without guilt, drink wine while watching Netflix, travel a lot, and do a lot of fun things with my family and friends. The only reason all of that is possible is because of automation
Automation is underestimated by photographers and creatives. We're hesitant to invest in products and services that help us run our businesses behind the scenes because we don't see where it benefits us in the end. People always want to know how automation gets me more clients. The answer is that it does and it doesn't. It gets me free time, which I can use to get more clients or spend more time doing the things that matter most.
So, what is automation? Automation is basically putting computers, technology and robots to work for you in your business.
This course might be right for you! If you're a photographer that's absorbed in editing or a blogger absorbed in blogging and your social media and customer communications suffer then it's time to automate them. Automation isn't for the faint of heart though. It takes dedication and time upfront to learn and set up, but once you have it all set up it runs your business for you and you can do the stuff you like. Automation is cheaper than paying to have your photos edited by someone else if you're a photographer. Automation is cheaper than hiring an assistant to run all your day to day business stuff behind the scenes.
This is a class for business owners and photographers who are fully ready to invest in automation. While this course does cover free options that can help you save a little time in business to be inclusive to everyone, those that get the most out of this course are going to be the ones who are willing to purchase the programs and services that can make automations happen in their business. Unfortunately a fully automated business is not something that can happen for free. I spend about $100 a month automating my business. However, it saves me about 5 hours a week in time. That's 260 hours of work a year. That is 6.5 weeks of time. Basically before automation I spent 6.5 weeks a year on time that I could have saved by investing in automation techniques. Now I have more time for travel or even to take on more work and gain more profits!
In this course you're going to learn the following:

I'm a wedding photographer for less traditional offbeat people. I like unicorns and Second Breakfast. I hate spiders and when there is no guacamole. I'm based in Colorado, but travel to photograph awesome weddings wherever people take me. When I'm not photographing weddings I'm the co-owner of Feminist Disrupted, which helps educators, entrepreneurs, creatives and industry leaders redefine normal as diverse and inclusive. We're working to conquer social justice issues in business! While I've owned multiple other businesses in the past, educating about diversity and inclusion is truly where my heart lies. The courses you find here are ones I created throughout my journey and continue to create out of a love of teaching (and also that teaching degree I apparently just can't kick). I also love my dog more than my husband and each room in my house has a different nerdy decor theme like Harry Potter, Doctor Who, or Lord of the Rings. Most importantly I believe that size matters...because nobody wants a small glass of wine.
