How to Positively Arm Yourself Against Recession Fatigue


From the desk of Beate, the Photography Business Success Coach and the ASPP West Coast Chapter. We invite you to join us on March 13, 2010 to come to S. Pasadena (Los Angeles) for an amazing event.

Most of you should know by now that I love being a member and I support photography organizations where I can. Photography associations have always been an important networking place for me. I’ve made a lot of valuable connections and one of the reasons that I know so many people is that I go where the centers of influence go. My businesses do well because I participate, give and maximize on these events. I cannot stress the importance of getting out and networking enough!

The ASPP and I have been talking about this event for quite some time and we are thrilled to announce our “shamelessly positive seminar” on March 13.

What’s it all about? It should come as no secret for any of you who follow me regularly. I can’t stand the whiners and complainers. There is already enough doom and gloom in this industry and all around us – we don’t need another one of these events and I most certainly wouldn’t be a part of it. We thought long and hard about this and decided what we could do to do the opposite. We realized that the most inspiring and motivational ideas come often from hearing it straight from someone whom you can relate to. Someone who has been there, fought that, dealt with a deck of lousy cards but pulled through.

We put together a couple of people who know about adversity and managed to come out on the other side smelling like roses. But how did that do that? That would be precisely what we will be sharing with you on March 13. This is not a panel of talking heads but an interactive, real life session with tips, secrets and tricks from real people that understand what is going on in your life. You will gain valuable insides and ideas that you can take home and apply to your own life.

What are you waiting for? Sign up now! You can sign up for the event right here. But you must hurry, the early bird deadline expires soon and the price will go up.

Despite what you might hear there are many success stories in this tough economy. Join our panel of optimists for stories of encouragement, positive thinking and tips for revitalizing your professional outlook. Learn how to positively arm yourself against recession fatigue.
