“You don’t understand,” you say. “This way, we can get on the phone with a potential client, make them understand why we are worth the money BEFORE dropping the price on them.”
And, no, I totally get it! I’m just here to break the bad news that, unfortunately, this tactic doesn’t really work the way you think it does.
Deposits needs to be paid. Questionnaires need to be filled out. Timelines need to be settled. Outfits need to be chosen. And on and on and on.

This may seem harsh or cruel, but we’ve all got to face the fact that not everyone is going to like us. No matter how sunny your personality or how jaw droppingly gorgeous your galleries, you aren’t a piece of chocolate to be loved and adored by everyone.

And that includes pushing away the people who love what you don’t provide.

In the modern era, you can’t just manage your own business. You have to become a brand. And, y’all, that’s freaking draining! You don’t get to shut it down and go home after your 9 to 5. You have to be “on” every time you answer an email, post to social media or respond to a comment. And when “on” means adopting a tone — a personality — that isn’t yours, it’s ten times as hard.
