People often ask about the best decision, but we think it’s also very enlightening to learn about people’s most difficult decisions and the frameworks they used to think through those decisions.
Annemarie Comes | Fine Art/Landscape Photographer
The most difficult decision I had to make was deciding to end my teaching/counseling career to launch into Fine Art/Landscape Photography. Changing ones career path after so many years of training and education was a hard decision to make. Education was so rewarding and had molded who I was. There were so many unknowns on the journey I was about to embark on and certainly no guarantees. I took the “leap of faith” and decided to follow my passion and do what I had dreamed of doing all these years. Still it is a work in progress. Adventure, “seeing new lands and experiencing new cultures” had always been a huge part of who I was.

Honestly, one being vulnerable and gaining the motivation to even write this post. My story begins when I opened my photography business in 2019 expecting all this big success and for it to change my life. I expected clients to just find me online and want to hire me. I would be traveling the world with my partner and living my 20s to the fullest! It has now been 2 years with nothing but crickets.

Am I cut out to be a business owner? A manager of operations? Do I deserve all that I imagine in my head? AM I GOOD ENOUGH? I knew I had to stop my habit of self destruction. It’s normal to think these things once in a while. Read more>>
Michael Lambard | Artist
The most difficult decision I ever had to make was quitting my full time job to do my Art. I knew it was time to make a move but having my family and being able to provide was my number 1 worry. With the help and urging of my Wife I was able to make the leap and could not have asked for a better outcome so far. It’s been a couple years and a lot of work but nothing I would change in that aspect. Read more>>
