Star Photography Coaching Client
I am so proud of how far Krysten has come since we started working together.
Here’s the thing, though–if you only get one thing from this episode, I want you to understand that her results are not due to the strategy I gave her.
They’re due to a combination of her work ethic, the strategy, and her trust in the process.
