Ep 64 – Mark Green – You Are Where You Are Because You Chose To Be There

Hey Photogs! What do you really want? And what are you going to do about it? Do you take every single job that comes your way, whether or not it is right for you? Or do you say 'no' to those who are rude, argue with you about your prices, and/or isn't your client? Mike talks with Mark Green about learning how to say 'no' to potential clients who are just not right for you (or who don't respect you as an artist) and the Power of Purpose. They talk about the driving force behind the decisions we make, why we have a hard time taking risk - even if it's in our best interest - and how to change our mindset to allow as to be free of that fear that holds us back.
