We had the good fortune of connecting with Yaneck Wasiek and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Yaneck, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
Everything we do in our business carries certain level of risk. That’s the nature of any business. So we need to understand and be prepared in case it materializes itself. For example, our move from Chicago to San Diego carried a big risk as we were moving our business across the continent. However, we were prepared for it and planned for over a year our move. We develop a plan for the first 12 months and also save enough money to be without revenue for over 6 months.
What should our readers know about your business?
Throughout the years I spent a lot of time learning and developing my photography craftmanship. Thanks to that, I was able to diversify my photography offering and develop multiple sources of revenue. In challenging times like today that diversification helped me a lot to go through current crisis as a strong business and build even stronger relationships with our clients.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I am honored to be one of Peter Hurley’s Headshot Photographer Associates. Peter is one of the best headshot photographers in the world and I was blessed to have him and his Headshot Crew as my mentor.
