About Chelette Enterprises, Inc.:

About: I am Beate Chelette aka the Photography Business Success Coach.  I know what it takes to make it, I have been on every side of this industry and aside from being well connected I have been in this long enough to know how things work. I have made it after years of struggling and my clients will tell you that I don’t hold back. I give you what I know straight up.

What I know is packaged in various products and services that you can participate in, subscribe to, invest in and study at home at your own pace. My programs are only for those of you who are serious about this business.  I don’t talk much about the art of photography the market is littered with people who will tell you that it all depends on that one image -  I focus on the business. What I do  works for people that are willing to accept that you are running a business and you need to know how to do that. What I do is NOT for people who just want to ‘try something’ and guaranteed the wrong thing for whiners and complainers. This is not an Internet scam I am a real person with real clients and I have a pretty serious guarantee on my systems. If you are tempted you can always send me an email to beate@photobizcoach.com. Who knows, I may just answer myself!  If you invest your hard earned money into me or my systems and you can’t find one idea over the course of one year that at least gets you your investment back – you get your money back + $100. I am originally from Germany and came to the US many years ago.  My experience spans the world and my systems work no matter where you are in the world. One more thing… I got a pretty good track record and I have a sincere desire to see my clients succeed.

If that still does not satisfy your curiousity you can read this interview about me and how I turned my dream into a reality.
