    I am so thankful to have added this incredible resource from MeRa and Brian to my every growing collection of learning tools. As I’ve come to expect, MeRa’s advice comes straight from her heart. She explains how she worked to grow her business and brand IN SPITE of her early experiences with insecurity and rejection. Take that personal fears!
    This resource however, is so much more than “you can do it”. MeRa really lays it all out on the line for anyone who is looking to take their “hobby” to the next level. She includes price lists, contracts, her favorite vendors, social media strategies and so much more. In this kit I have found not only inspiration, validation and reassurance, but also VERY USEFUL STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS on how to build my BUSINESS of photography. Bring it on!
