My special guest for today’s episode is from Paris and his name is Mark.

Today, we’re going to do a case study of a startup photography business. We’ll talk about Mark’s struggles when he was setting up his photography business. Mark was staring his alone in the beginning and he has progressed but a little bit slow. Since he’s taken my PhotoProfit 8 week course he had some major results. He actually doubled his business in 8-12 weeks. He’s become known as the photographer in his network. Mark has taken action each week in my 8 week course that’s why he’s starting to get results.

In this interview, we talked about being a foreigner in a different country. You can use that as a negative or as a positive. Mark used that a positive. We also talked about knowing your WHY and why is it important to know your WHY. We also talked about mindset, how to network and how to get actual clients.

Enjoy! Brent.
