Are any of these thoughts frequent visitors to your headspace?

  • They didn't accept my bid. They don't like me. I'm no good. (Fear of rejection)
  • I suck. That other shooter has it all together. I'm a fraud. (Impostor syndrome)
  • I have social media FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt). I should be posting on Instagram, Facebook LinkedIn, and/or SnapChat right now or no one will ever hire me. Ever. How are those other shooters doing it?!? I know should be. (Also known as FOMO: Fear of missing out)
  • I should spend more time marketing, but I'm too overwhelmed with everything else I have to do. I just can't do it. (Discouragement)
  • I can't trust anyone - especially other photographers or they'll steal my clients. (Scarcity consciousness)
  • I can't seem come up with any decent, new portfolio pieces. I know I should shoot for my portfolio but my creativity seems to have dried up. (Muse neglect)
  • The faster I go, the behinder I get. Stop the world. I wanna get off! (Overwhelmed)

Anyone who's ever ruminated over a situation and wished they could stop thinking about it knows the suffering that mental loop creates. The good news is is that all of those negative states start in the mind (consciousness) and that's where it can be fixed.

It might be time for you to install an upgrade on a critical
Operating System-the OS that you use to run your own mind.


Consider this...You'd never think to process your images using the software you were using 10 years ago, would you? You intuitively know it would not be able to effectively process and render so much more data - not to mention your client's demands for more and faster deliverables.

Then why do you think you don't need to readjust how you mentally process the increased amount of information assaulting your mental space every day? Information that can derail a relationship if it's misprocessed. E.g. is that other person that's driving you crazy really doing it on purpose? Time for a brain hack?

Chapter Event Carolyn Potts, former photo rep, current photo marketing consultant, and regular Review 612 participant, returns to ASMP MSP on 4/27/17 to provide a deeper dive into one of the critical foundational "Tripod legs of Success" she outlines in her photo marketing seminar: Rebooting Your Business Brain.

In this brand new seminar, Carolyn expands that first tripod leg: The Inner Game: Managing Your Mind. Attendees will learn what makes up this primary leg of support and how you can get that stability in your business. She will help photographers understand why, in this hyper-connected, short-attention-span economy, managing your mind has never been more important.

"One of the best things I got from Carolyn's talk was her emphasis of the critical importance of photographers learning how manage their "Inner Game." Being able-via mindfulness tools and other techniques-to let go of fears, doubts, anxieties and other negative thoughts is an absolutely essential element for success... I only wish someone had told me about this aspect of business when I first started so I wouldn't have had to wait until I was 38 years old to learn this!!" -Aimee N.'s response to Carolyn's January 2017 ASMP Atlanta SE chapter.

What can you expect in this program? In this seminar photographers will have a chance to both learn and then do. We'll go over the what, when, and the whys and then you'll get to directly experience some of the tools that can shift you into a more powerful person - someone who can shift out of those less-than effective thoughts.

We'll be busting apart some FUD myths and taking the buzz out of FOMO.

A photographer who is calm and less reactive is a more creative photographer and a better salesperson. You can listen far more effectively-both to your Muse and to the subtle clues your client is giving off in a creative conference call-when your mind is quieter.

Carolyn will provide strategies, applications, and tips that can help anyone who's ever faced these situations or ever been bothered by those thoughts.

This is not "airy-fairy" stuff. These are 21st -Century tools for mindfulness, stress reduction, and life optimization. You'll come away from this talk with tools you can start to use now. You'll also be able to create a community of accountability partners to support you in this important aspect of maintaining and growing your photo business.

She will share research and anecdotes from her own life and those of her clients. She'll share "mind stuff" that works in making you a better photographer and a better marketer of your work.

This program is for those who are interested in stretching beyond current limiting beliefs they have about their business, themselves, and what's possible.

"Working with Carolyn has pulled me out of my comfort zone, shown me things about myself that have helped me grow in numerous ways, we have had a few amazing AH-HA moments that literally gave me goosebumps! And, best of all, she isn't afraid to tell you like it is. Her enthusiasm for what she is doing to help her clientele radiates through each and every meeting and she empowers you to be the best and grab life by the horns." -Emily T. current client.

Read more about her perspective on why getting your head together can help you get ahead in these two articles she wrote for the ASMP Strictly Business Blog: "From WTF!?! to AHA" and "Where Everything Starts".

Top entertainers, CEOs, media moguls, leading tech companies and successful artists know the essential importance of having and maintaining a good inner game. Why not you?
