Throwback to my modelling career, as in the one time a friend asked me to get in front of the camera with her for her breastfeeding range 😂
Guys I want to tell you a little story about how a friendship made on the gram happened to change the course of my little biz Juicy.
Many moons ago I met Jessie from @bornetoo & @fargadiaries while running a competition. I can’t remember the rest but after Photoshoots, expos, workshops, play dates, chips and many a beer we have become biz besties. As in we’re friends but when it comes to smashing out ideas, motivating each other and talking all things biz she’s my first point of call.
Anyway, I digress (surprise surprise) after a pivot or two I was really stuck with what to do and hwo to do it. Almost to the point of giving the fuck up. Which seems funny as I release my third and fourth workshop tickets to my waiting list of eager future attendees.
I think I voice messaged her, because #mumlife (amiright?!) and after that series of voice messages that day everything changed. It might have only seemed like a little idea to her but to me it was huge, it was what I needed. Like the last little push you get from your parents when learning how to ride a bike before you’re on your way. Riding that shit without training wheels, full of speed and excitement.
See the thing is there’s no such thing as smooth sailing in this world and I firmly believe you’re only as strong as your support crew. The support crew that you get to create yourself.
When you’re having those ‘what are the fuck am I doing’, “I’m so tired of this not working’ ‘what is wrong with me’ moments that we ALL face, reach out. tell a friend, swallow your pride (it actually just gets in the way anyway) and share your struggles. You never ever know what difference someone else can make to you and lastly don’t apologise for doing it because that’s what friendship is. Showing up for each other, suporting each other and cheering each other the fuck on.
Who’s your biz bestie? Show them some love today because let’s face it, none of us would be where we are without them. 🙌🏼👊🏼😍 Pics snapped by @jesswinterburnmedia at Sorrento Quay, Hillarys Boat Harbour
