Running, oddly enough, has become my favorite exercise.
Who’d a thunk. The only running I used to like doing was running from the authorities and cops. Besides that, running, in my o so humble and inaccurate opinion, was a product of satan himself.
I hated it.
So I thought.
Until I discovered running sandals. Changed my life.
And completely removed the pain I always felt when I’d run with regular running shoes.
AND, removed my need for insoles and expensive orthotics.
I’m organic. Running as nature intended it to be. Feelz great!
What also feels great is listening to music on my LSTN headphones while running.
This totally inspires me and makes running that much better.
Problem is, I sometimes break out in air guitar. Or, worse yet, I start
Whatever. Bottom line is I don’t really care. As long as I’m doing my thing
and it feels great!
(BTW they’re called ‘huarache’ sandals, from the running culture based in the copper canyons of Mexico)
You can see a pic of me after a marathon, above, sporting a pair.
Same in running a photography studio. I often do stuff that you could say is similar to winding out some air guitar, or running in bare foot sandals.
Like the fact that I shoot 100% in jpeg.
Or, that I still believe in using mail and direct mail pieces.
Or that I am 100% mirrorless.
Or that I sometimes take jobs below my pay grade.
Or get face to face with my people in my community.
I use what works, what saves time, what inspires me and whatever adds to my overall enjoyment in life and in business.
Should it be any other way?
I also share EVERYTHING I know on running a studio in my forum. Every month I host and run a mastermind meet up…sometimes I bring others, sometimes it’s just me.
Either way, learning what works, like I learned (from others BTW) ho to jog pain free, is a journey.
And you gotta show up.
JUNE 2017 Lighting Mastermind and Marketing Mastermind will be in the books in a few days.
Yours in photography and success,
