October 2017 Goals

October 2017 Goals
Hello, friend! Happy October! I have been soaking up these last few months as a mama of two, and goodness I am so grateful. Grateful for these sweet two littles I get to call my own, and grateful for the amazing NRP Team who has carried this studio and cared for every client while I have been away. I’m still on maternity leave, but I’m giving myself grace and pe[...]

September 2017 Goals

September 2017 Goals
Nancy has been on maternity leave for almost a month now, and Olivia and I are working hard in the studio to keep everything running smoothly and have been working towards some really exciting and challenging rocks! Not sure what "rocks" are? Click here to read all about them! For me, August was all about editing, editing and more editing. We had an amazing line up[...]

March 2017 Goals (& our 90 day Rocks!)

March 2017 Goals (& our 90 day Rocks!)
I'm going to share a brief little story that has helped me SO much over the past year. It's a little cheesy, but stick with me, because it's really good! ••• One time there was a professor, and he filled a big glass jar with a bunch of rocks. He asked his class, "Is this jar full?" Of course his students said yes! But then he reached under his table and filled t[...]

February 2017 Goals
Adorable mugs (the perfect Valentine's gift!) can be found at Lettered Life! This February, my word is "prepare." I want to prepare for a new 2017 team (new studio assistant + 3 new interns), prepare for upcoming courses I'll be launching on Film Photography and Team building (follow @nancyrayshop to stay in the loop!), I want to prepare for romance and a healt[...]

October Goals

October Goals
Yes yes yes. I love this sign and I keep it on my desk. This is my mantra this month! September was my month of traveling, shooting, and hosting my nieces and nephews... twice. It was full of all the important things, and it was wonderful, but I am SO happy to see you, October. I am declaring you are my month of simplicity. No traveling. No additional events or[...]

March 2014 Goals

At the beginning of a new month, one of my favorite things that the Powersheets offers is a small box that says: "Pep talk to self."  This month, my pep talk reads: It's wedding season now, and I know what that means! It's time to step up my game, roll up my sleeves, and GET TO WORK. It's true. I've accomplished much these past 2 months, but I've still had my Sa[...]

2013: What worked and what didn’t

2013: What worked and what didn't
This year my goal setting has shifted a bit. It hasn't completely changed - I am still blogging my monthly goals (the 1st day of every month), and I see a lot of value in doing that. What's different? I've incorporated Lara's Powersheets in my goal setting, and it has really been such a blessing to me! Because this is my first year doing the Powersheets, I am feeling [...]

March 2013 Goals

March 2013 Goals
photo source This past Tuesday at the opportunity to speak at Raleigh's Wedding Photographic Society. What a great group of photographers who meet together, dream together, ask questions, and challenge one another! I was so honored to be asked to speak, and I chose the topic of setting goals. There are so, so, so many topics to choose to speak on in small business own[...]
