I’m beyond honored to be featured on She Creates Business Podcast! I’m really digging into how I grew my photography business from $5000 my first year in business to the sustainable 6-figure business it is now. I share exactly the steps I took and the secrets to my success.
In this episode, I tell my story of how at only 17 years old, I left home and moved over 1100 miles away to attend school for photography because I had this crazy dream that I could do it. It was my first time away and the experience was beyond difficult. Lots of tears were shed that first month, from both myself and my parents back home. But I stuck it out and I’m SO glad I did. I learned valuable lessons and made some amazing friendships.
You think it would be easy after graduation to then find a job in the photography world. Believe me, it wasn’t. When I asked to intern or work for free with other photographers, they said the market was oversaturated and there was no room for me (seriously, they said that! 😱) I knew if I wanted to do this, I had to make my own business (even though I had no idea where to start.) At only 20 years old, living back with my parents again, I started Shaunae Teske Photography. I grew it from nothing to the sustainable six-figure business it is today.
There is no magic recipe for success. It’s a lot of hard work, putting yourself out there, and showing up everyday. I’m so thankful I went through this process so I can now take everything I’ve learned and use it to help others through my education and my consulting program. It’s full of valuable info and resources. It was an honor to speak so openly with Kinsey and to share my story with all of you!
