Did you know that 85% of photographers fail within 3 years of starting a photography business?
That's a pretty scary statistic BUT... I have good news.
After working with thousands of photographers - I know what it takes to be a success story and not another statistic... don't skip this letter.
First, let me say something a bit controversial...
The quality of your photos is probably not the MAIN reason you aren't earning income with your photography
I know that statement goes against what most have been told or think the key to success is but I've seen plenty of "career students" get passed up by fast moving "up and comers" because of one thing and one thing only...
They weren't afraid to just GO and GET STARTED.
We live in the "micro attention era" where everyone is in a hurry to consume more mindless (but entertaining) content.
That's part of the reason why so many sadly FAIL at earning income with their photography...
Call it a lack of focus or a desire for mindless entertainment... but regardless.
They didn't put in that little "extra effort" and quickly got discouraged and gave up - or are thinking about giving up.
Ready to know one of the keys to becoming wildly successful?
The biggest contributing factor to their success was they worked with a coach so they always had someone to go to when they got "stuck" and needed help.
So if you currently do not have a vibrant, in-demand, profitable business...
First, realize you aren't alone and in fact, when you are left to figure it out on your own, it's extremely hard and the odds are stacked against you.
Secondly, if you've been focused on "learning" before "doing" - it's time to STOP that and you need to get started.
Third, there's never a "magic pill" course that will be the "cure-all" to you building a photography business.
Fourth, you don't have to do this alone, and you shouldn't.... the real KEY to success is these 3 things.
- Executing (doing the work)
- Curated Learning (having ONE place to go for photography education)
- Coaching, Community & Accountability
You need to do ALL 3 of these... because you can have access to the best training in the world but if you don't ever act on it and execute the work, it's for absolutely nothing.
You can have the training and do the work but as soon as you run into a challenge, if you have nowhere to turn to for help.... you give up or keep doing the same things - even though its not working.
That's exactly why it's vital to have access to coaches who have "been there, done that"...
When you have access to coaches, you're able to get quick guidance that'll get you unstuck.
When you have access to a community with others who have the same challenges and goals, you'll get the support you need to keep on going rather than give up.
The problem is...
If you went to a local photographer in your market and asked them for coaching...
1. They usually don't want to help the competition and
2. Charge about $300 to $500 an hour
That's EXACTLY why I created Cole's Classroom Pro
Where you have access to:
Don't you think if you had access to all 3 of these things you too can be successful?
