August 31 Day Challenge: 3. Favorite Entrepreneur Podcast

Day 3. Favorite Entrepreneur Podcast

Seth Godin

I came across his Stop Stealing Dreams talk on TedX and from there on I knew this man had something for me to hear. It’s one of those talks where you knew what he was saying all along but never found the words to express it yourself let alone put anything into practice.

August 31 Day Challenge: 1. Mission Statement

This is a bit over ambitious for me. However, I am going to do this. I am going to make time. Because it’s what I need.

Day 1. Mission Statement

To live a life while earning an income that allows us to experience and enjoy what we can while we have time here.

THIS is living to me.
Handling business during the morning.
Enjoying this crazy city of ours in the afternoons.
Relaxed. At ease. Breathing.
Today I start an entrepreneurial challenge and Day #1 asked… “Whats your mission statement?” This picture is a huge part of it. Something as simple as taking a 3 hour walk through the gardens, appreciating our lives, enjoying our littles, discussing business strategy, not answering calls or texts, and just being in our little moment… this is it.

5 Tips for Shooting Real Estate Listings & Vacation Rentals

irpdesigns_boyd_march2016-62

I’ve growled at my clients for putting up pictures that don’t compliment their marketing or design. Most times their response is “I was in a hurry!” And I completely understand it.

What’s wrong with that?

For this project I was commissioned  by 9Fi5th to photograph custom closet installations designed by Susan of California Closets for an apartment at 212 Fifth Avenue in NYC. The model apartment was absolutely stunning and was nothing less than what you would expect for a 5th Avenue address. So it was a treat to be in.

Look what comes out of my camera. Yuck! [befores & afters]

westover_5_before
My clients say it all the time…  I make it look simple. I enter a room, I eye the space, move some things here and there and I snap away. Different angles, different corners, get in close, move back… “I’m dooooone!” I sing out to the owner and my client. Pack up. And I’m off.
