Rachael Venema began her Photography business back in 2010 to provide some extra income for her family and to allow her to stay home with her small children. After 2 years of trying to make her business work, she ended up having to get a part-time job on top of trying to get her business going. It was then that Rachael knew she needed to make some major changes to her business plan. What she wanted was a step by step program that could show her the tools she needed to have a profitable business.
RACHAEL, YOU WANTED TO STAY HOME WITH YOUR KIDS, SO YOU NEEDED TO MAKE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS PROFITABLE. HOW DID YOU DO THAT?
To run a profitable business, you not only have to charge what you need to in order to have a profitable business, but you also need to value yourself and your family. Also, this business is more than just supporting your family, it is about providing an amazing service for your customers. I truly love providing Full Service Portraiture for my customers. Providing an amazing service for them is such an honor. When I finally made the decision to go through Profitography, I not only gained the tools I needed to make my business profitable, but I also gained the confidence I needed to start charging what I was worth. Best of all, Profitography gave me a support group of fellow Photographers and business owners that I could go to with questions, struggles, and my wins!
WHEN YOU START CHARGING WHAT YOU’RE WORTH, THAT’S WHEN YOU BECOME A PROFITABLE BUSINESS OWNER! SHARE WITH US YOUR BIGGEST WIN SINCE PROFITOGRAPHY.
My biggest win is when I moved across the country from a big city to a small town, and I was able to implement what I learned through Profitography, and it is totally working! It has been amazing connecting with people and businesses in this small town, and after being here just 1 year, my business is growing and has a ton of potential. My customers love the service I provide, and the people want this type of portrait experience. Saying you are in a small town, so Profitography won’t work, is just an excuse. Put in the time and hard work, and every market has people that are willing to invest in the experience you have to offer. We can make a ton of excuses for why this won’t work, but we do not know until we try, and just see where it will lead! Every market has potential. You just have to get out there with the right tools to promote your business.
GIRL, YOU ARE SUCH AN INSPIRATION! WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE ANYONE THINKING OF ENROLLING IN PROFITOGRAPHY? IS IT WORTH THE INVESTMENT BOTH IN TIME AND MONEY?
Profitography is worth every penny. Figure out a way to pay for it. It’s more than just another educational program, it’s a support group that encourages and helps you every step of the way. Profitography will give you the step by step tools needed to run a profitable business. Be prepared for a ton of work, because it definitely is not easy. But, your fellow Profitogs will be cheering you with each and every step you take!
WE ARE SO GLAD THAT YOU HAVE GAINED SO MUCH FROM PROFITOGRAPHY! WE’D LOVE TO SEE A TESTIMONY FROM A CLIENT.
Stephanie C. says, “Taking pictures with Rachael has been enjoyable, exciting, and fun! Truly the best experience! She held our hand through every detail from choosing a location, colors of our outfits, props and poses, choosing a package, and choosing pictures for an album. This has been such a positive and memorable experience, and we look forward to our next session!”
Rachael, you know that we are so proud of you, and that you are such an inspiration to us all. We love the fact that you moved from a big city to a small town, and you just rock your business where ever you go! We are so happy to be a part of your Photography journey, and just love seeing all of your successes! Keep up the amazing work!
