Business Boot Camp | Boston


While attending PartnerCon this year, I had a crash course in Business Boot Camp.
The BBC is an intense, intimate two-day experience designed to help you take your photography business to the next level, enforce business health and profitability, and create a better work/life balance.

Yesterday, photographer and business guru (not to mention my sweet friend) Liana Lehman, offered me a crash course and I was blown away at what I learned. I walked away with knowing exactly how much I need to make next year to pay myself "x" salary in conjunction with growing my business. ( That includes ideals such as maxing out IRA annually, and putting a significant amount in savings each month.) Additionally, I can tell you my cost of sales on each package I offer and how to decrease my cost of sales without affecting my clients.

Anyway, a few other photographers and I are planning on attending Liana's full boot camp in Boston, MA on Dec 4-6, 2007. We would love to get a fun group together and honestly, it's a great opportunity to get your biz stuff in order before we head into the 2008 fiscal year.
PLUS, we have never been to the New England area so I look forward to experiencing what the East Coast hype is all about. ;) (some people say the East Coast is better than the West Coast... BUT 'West' rhymes with 'BEST' for a reason ;) ) WE shall see though, I believe in fair chances. haha.

I DEFINITELY want to attend Liana's bootcamp in the next few years. The more I hear about it, the more I think it's one of the best one there.

Hey, I'm a West-Coaster too (Vancouver, BC) but seriously Shyla: the East Coast? TO DIE FOR. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. That's all I can say. Boston is one of my favourite cities.
