I CARE about Your Photos!
As a Certified Photo Organizer and Personal Historian, I truly believe few things are as important as your memories. After all, if you don't have them, what do you have? So I'm going to show you exactly what to do to keep them organized and safe. It's my mission in life to save as many photos as I can from what scientists are referring to as "the digital black hole."
In this digital photo organizing class, I will be showing you the exact step-by-step organizing formula I've used over and over again to organize my clients' photo collections. This is what they pay me the big bucks for!
Not only will I show you how to get organized, but I will also show you how to stay organized, which, believe me, is much harder! I will not let you fail!
Organizing is a process, just like cooking, so if you try to make a pancake before you've made the batter, it's not going to work. Right?
Chefs can experiment, yes, but that's only because of the years of practice and learning they have gone through. I bet they took a cooking class or two...and studied with a mentor. They have mastered the craft, know the ins and outs of all the ingredients, and can improvise based on their needs.
But that's not for novices.
If you're a beginner, and you try to experiment, your dish is probably going to end up in the trash a few times before you get it right. But once you have the recipe, it suddenly becomes much easier.
Glad you asked! I suppose you could Google some of this stuff, but let me tell you why that wouldn't be such a great idea! Here are the top 3 reasons why you should invest in this course with me:
That's right. This is a biggie. You're not really paying for the course, you're paying for the outcome. Your photos will be organized. Your workflow will be seamless. And if it isn't, we'll figure out why and fix it. Together.
Google can't do that.
This isn't just a bunch of random information that makes no sense. This is a proven strategy that takes you from A to B in the least amount of time possible. Each lesson builds upon the previous one to ensure that you're actually developing skills and applying everything that you're learning to your digital photo collection. In short, you don't know what you don't know, and I'm gonna tell you exactly what that is.
Google can't do that.
When you enroll in my class, I take your education seriously. I take your time seriously. I take your investment seriously. I'm committed to your success and I'm going to be there every step of the way to make sure you graduate on time. I'm going to motivate you, and keep you accountable. I'm gonna be the kick in the pants you need to finally get this done.
I work for you, not for Google.
