The best business partner a girl could ask for | Amarillo TX Photographer

Shout out time.

I would like to take a moment to brag about the best photography business partner a girl could ask for: my husband, Mason.

Mason, you are awesome. There is no way our business would be anywhere today if it wasn't for you. You have the strengths that I don't have. You push me to take risks and put myself out there when I just want to be shy and hide. You have a rare leadership quality. You don't think like anyone else I have ever met. Something in you causes you to take unusual paths in life and by doing that, you end up where no one else ends up, if that makes sense.

You are bursting with ideas, innovations, and words of wisdom. You told me a while ago about a man who wanted to grow his business and be successful so he told himself that he already was successful. He told himself, "I make $250,000 a year," even though he didn't in reality. But by telling himself he did, he soon was able to make that much money. For him, it was about visualizing his future the way he wanted to see it. 

You teach me every day to be a more positive person, even when I struggle with self-doubt. I have a tendency to limit myself but you pull me from that way of thinking. You tell me that the only limits I have are the ones I place on myself. 

I love that you're not afraid to make people angry. I am crippled by the slightest idea that I've upset someone or rocked the boat. That's just ridiculous. The most successful people are the ones who are not afraid to make waves. 

So Mason, thank you for being there, not on the sidelines, but right in the action with me. I love doing life with you.
