Designer, Photographer, & Artist

Starting a small business…always sounds like a great idea – until you start to realize how much work it is going to take and how long it will take for the business to be booming. I am not sure why I started doing this, but I realized that my passion was to help small businesses and individuals capture their dreams and memories.

So what have I realized so far? It will be a few years before I can rely solely on the profit. So until then, I have to find another job. I also have to start setting aside about 30 percent of all profits for taxes. That was definitely something I didn’t expect. I also had to start keeping all receipts for any purchase for the business. Facebook, Twitter, and a website were all things I was expecting. Needless to say, I think everyone needs to definitely do their research before even following through with this idea, but in all honesty, I am pretty lucky to have family who all have some sort of important business knowledge. I have turned to many family members for advice on what to do, and have even hit up my professors from college for advice.

For now, I am going to go back to working on some designs to relax, but just for you…here is a design I just worked on for some music stuff….





Also, here is another design of a very beautiful quote….





Toodles world! Hope you all have a great one!

  1. Hello! I’m in the same boat. Starting a small business is a big investment of time and money with not as much return in the beginning. But you have a lot of talent and it seems like a lot of fortitude, so hang in there! I love quotes, and the designs are elegant and simple and very memorable. Go for it! (I especially like the music one.)
