The end of the year is near and if you have been following me on social media, you noticed that I was traveling everywhere from the mountains in California to the beaches in the Caribbean and the rivers of Europe on assignment. 2014 has been the busiest year in my entire career and it hasn't been a smooth road, well nothing is, because if it was easy, it wasn't worth working for. I'm only home a few days of the month and during that time and in between, I have to make time to edit all these shoots all still within deadline. It's very challenging trying to find a balance with my personal life, sleep and running a small business. Often, plane seats and hotel rooms were my offices or even in my tent in the backcountry. The recline feature on the plane and the hotel beds were very tempting but work had to be done first.
As we approach a new calendar year, I use this time to approach a revised, better business plan. Part of the plan is to reflect and correct everything that I missed and improve on it for the upcoming year. Topping this list, is for me to work just as hard BUT work even harder in keeping those relationships around me — Faith, Family, Friends. I've kept them under a blanket when I should have been giving them more of my time because those relationships were the ones who supported me and pushed me to where I am today and I finally realized that. It takes A LOT of patience being around me and working with me and very often, I have disguised their time as if they owed me their time. When in fact I owed them. I owe them.
Over the next few weeks, you'll see some changes in the website, the Glenn Fajota brand, the social media outlets and most importantly, my time for you. Thank you to my current clients for being patient and understanding as I continue to deliver your photos and videos to you. And to you my future clients, let's go do some work!
Okay enough, I have to get back to these edits! With that said, I'll let you get back to your holiday shopping but one item you must get for your loved ones is the 2015 Calendar, Glenn Fajota Travel Edition, with places I have photographed from around the world. A portion of the proceeds will go to the World Wildlife Fund www.WWF.org
