Very often, after we hit our 40s, 50s or 60+, we dream of starting our dream business, but we tell ourselves that we are too old to do that or worse, others tell us that.
Well, let me tell you, you are never too old.
All those negative thoughts are in our own heads. And I know all this because as a Personal Brand Photographer for Women, I have met women of all ages doing their thing and creating their own business reality. And guess what, I’m as well one of these women.
I was 43 when I founded my photography business. My motivation? Being my own boss, creating through photography, helping others achieve their dreams, and the best of all working my hours around my family. Let me tell you honestly, it wasn’t an easy start, as I was so stuck in my own head telling myself that I’m too old to start a new business (again) and in a new country (again). You see, before my photography business, I had a few different, profitable businesses in a different country (not in my home country either but in my husband’s).
Somehow, I picked up my courage and started working very slowly, towered starting my photography business. I was determined, and the desire to have a business that I love was enough to push all the negativity to one side and go for it. I love the fact that I have become a positive role model for my kids too. My business is my passion, which keeps me focused and driven, and with that, I showed my kids that good thing happen if you keep going and not quit when the going gets tough.
After three years of ups and downs and throughout the pandemic when I couldn’t work at all, I can truthfully tell you that right now, I’m on the right path. My business is growing more and more by the day. And no, still, it’s not easy, but I absolutely love what I do, and the hard work is paying off. I’m proud of my story, and I am proud of the brand I am building.
AND the best part? I get to help other talented, amazing women on their business journey.
SO, IF I CAN DO IT, YOU CAN TOO.
AGE IS JUST A NUMBER, NOTHING MORE.
