I coulda photohopped this
I coulda made my waist smaller.
I coulda made my boobs bigger.
F*ck that though.
Arching my back and pursing my lips – you are welcome!!!
Although only taken a couple years ago, this was captured in another life
when I used to live with my clients,
yes – LIVE WITH –
sometimes for weeks on end,
planning every meal,
all of the accommodation,
nearly every waking moment and activity…
it was exhausting!
I learned a TON,
made great money,
Yes, I’ll still be attending a few select and aligned retreats, capturing them in photos, video, drone, underwater… glorious amazing memories, from the candid to the posed, from the personal branding to the food to the venue, the landscape, laughter, connection, tears…
but I’m sorry,
I just don’t care
if your pillow is lumpy,
if the toilet paper isn’t soft enough,
or if the coffee isn’t just the way you like it.
I’m just a bit more Bourdain
than Martha Stewart…
that being said, using the photos and videos from my first retreat, gave me what I needed to more than quadrupple revenue from just the first to the second trip.
I don’t regret a second of it
I just know my strengths and happy place so much now – why bother forcing myself to do those parts I don’t care for – when others are so genius at it and enjoy it so much (Desha Peacock I’m looking at you 😉 and I now consult on retreat planning for others.
