I QUIT MY JOB!

In the time of economic instablility and credit crunching and purse tightening, I, Tminx have quit my job. Not so bright eh? Well the future will determine that. I've decided to pursue my photography full time. That's the answer I give whenever anyone asks..So you have a better offer somewhere else abi?' and then they roll their eyes and say 'Yeah right. You are such a liar!' Why is it that Photography sounds so ridiculous to people?


This decision didn't come easy. It took months and months of prayers and  deliberation and analysing and sleepless nights. Eventually I just had to go with my heart and put all the negative comments in a huge wide box.

So i'm free from the 9-5 institution and have registered my company. Its not going to be easy, infact its going to be a lot of hard work and I'm sure I'll meet many 'special' clients but I know I wouldn't be doing anything else. 

Wish me goodluck!

good luck honey. I for one will be needing your services soon. Send me you african, european, american and asia contac details. And not to forget australia too. Sweetie. You are going global. You've got what it takes, and be the good lord to guide and bless you on this road.

It's not going to be easy. But as long as this is what you believe is what you've been called to do. You will have His backing.

God's speed.

All the best. I quit a job too to do movies full time and it's looking very good so nothing to fear.It'll just be tough the first few months but I am sure you are prepared for that.

Good luck again.

Goodluck...quitting your job was the best thing you did and I love your new line. I also love photography and am heading to Central Saint Martins for a short term course in creative photgraphy. I am also planning to quit my job and I have been saving for a year immediately I paid off my MBA fees at the University of Leicester. From my own point of view, it's good and liberating to do this while you can cos you'll be better for it and you won't have a caseload of 'What if's'as you grow older. Wish you all the very best...Have you thought about having a travel blog which will showcase all the pictures you took while you were on your MBA program? That way, you can consider travel photography.
