So Much Good

Good is everywhere, despite the uneasiness we have felt. Believe it.

It's time to share the good stuff happening in our world of late. [Yea God!]

Leland On Location Photographic Images, Inc. has seen a consistent uptick in business since the second quarter of this year. In addition, we adjusted rates and are enjoying a new level of clientele that are very professional and respectful. In particular, we were thrilled recently to have had the privilege of shooting an event for Coca-Cola Refreshments--a big development for us.

The legal wheels are turning (thank you for your diligence, Heather Wright) to acquire certification as a woman-owned business, increasing our likelihood of being booked for shoots with the big guys, who have minority quotas to be concerned with.

I'm looking forward to this more than you know. Here's why:

I've experienced a lot of loss in my lifetime; one of those being a job, victim of the company's financial cutbacks. As a result, I started a consulting business in 2006. I discovered I loved being an entrepreneur; being invested in something that was my own rather than working in a corporate culture where hard work goes unappreciated and where you're invisible, until you make a mistake. Fast forward to the recession. My primary client (and others) disappeared as they struggled for their own survival, and I closed the business.

It excites me to think of having ownership in a business again--to partner with my husband--not just sit on the sidelines watching, or take an occasional role here and there. I will be showing up every day on purpose, committed to success; financially, as well as in quality and client satisfaction--as is our usual practice. I'll be invested in something again.

Let me tell you right now, when God decides it's time, things move.

His time, not our made-up time. 

How long, Lord? Will you forget me forever?
But I trust in your unfailing love;
my heart rejoices in your salvation.
I will sing the Lord’s praise,
for he has been good to me. --Psalm 13: 1, 5-6
