If you aren't already aware, I started a photography business in May. If you aren't aware, you probably haven't spent much time with me lately, digitally or IRL. If you had, you would know because I talk about it too much, and I think about it even more. It has been nearly all consuming. I try not to let it be, but it's exciting and challenging. It requires all sorts of skills I have not had a chance to sharpen until now.
But it also involves so much self doubt.
Because it's hard to tell people to pay me for something they could do themselves. To convince them that I do it better.
Because selling my art/ product / service feels like selling myself.
And it's impossible to avoid feeling like an imposter. To avoid feeling like a cliche.
At my worse I feel like everything I do is either boring or wrong.
But I'm pretty damn sure that's how everyone feels.
