I need your help…
Friends. Just take a moment. Hear me out.
Contests are always popping up around you to win something. Sometimes is as simple as putting your name into a hat to win a new leather camera backpack, I didn’t win. Other times, it is a little harder. You have to get creative and pour out your heart. You have to think a little and share with the world, why you deserve to win. That is what this Go Getter’s Getaway contest entry is like. I need to share my heart and why I should win. This is a chance to spend time with four amazing women that are pouring their hearts into their businesses. They want to share what they’ve learned with other women. They want to help empower us, so that we can empower others.
First things first, in order for me to get on their radar, I need YOU to go vote for me. I need the support of my friends, family and
the community the tribe that I’m working on building. This is my ultimate goal, to build a tribe. I have all of these ideas in my head to make my photography business more than just a business to benefit myself. I want to have a tribe of people that I can influence and make an impact in their lives. I want, so much to have this here where I am now. I want to build this here in little ole’ The Dalles, Oregon and take it with me no matter where I go in life. I want to be a Go Getter. I want to pursue my goals with a passion. I will be sharing my specific goals in posts to come.

Day 1: Vote Here
Hey there! I am Jess. I am always dreaming of the next place and adventure that life with take me. I am constantly on the run, but not always running towards my goals. I know what it is that I want to do in life, but I struggle with figuring out how to get there. I want my business to be more than me. I want to influence those I come in contact with, I want to make new friends, and I want to make an impact. I want to grow it to make an impact on more than just those I physically come into contact with during the day to day. I know everyone needs a pep talk now and then, but I need a kick to push me into believing that I can. That is why I want to go with you ladies. I want to learn from you face to face. You’ve already influenced me so much and helped me figure out what I want. I know that being by your side will help me achieve my goals even more. Help to keep running, but to run towards my goals rather than away. Take me with you!

Day 2: Vote Here
Today is not about me. It’s about the people that make me better. The people that give me the drive to want to learn, to do more for others, to become the person that I long to be, and to achieve the goals that I have set before me. My sweet husband who has been supportive of me through this journey to figure out how I can make an impact on this world. He has taught me so much in these 10 years together. He is humble and beyond talented although he will never tell you that. He has always been willing to share his knowledge and talents with others. Even if it means they will be doing what he has always dreamed of doing. He will still help them achieve their goals by putting his on the sidelines. He always puts others first. Then there is this sweet almost two year old boy of ours. He keeps me on my toes running around the house. Watching him learn about new things for the first time gives me that desire to learn and do better. I want to be able to create something that he can see impact the world. I want him to know that others don’t dictate who he is. He will change the world one day. This makes me keep going. I know that I am not too old to start living my dreams. I know that I can make a difference if I just keep pushing myself. God is on my side and wants me to achieve my goals by living my life for him. This is why I want to go on this trip for my family and for my personal growth. I want to get that push I need to keep going forward no matter what fears or doubts I have. These women have that strength to push those fears and doubts aside and I want to be able to experience that from them first hand.
Day 3: Vote Here
Fears. I have so many fears for entering this contest, but I took the leap and did it anyways. What is there to lose? I am afraid that I am not good enough to go on a trip with these women. I am afraid that no one will vote for me. That my friends and family will not take the time to click the link and vote. Then I go down the path that people don’t care for me and I am just a nobody. This is not good. These feelings and fears aren’t good. People care. I know they do. However, these fears are real. It is things like this contest that make me feel like I don’t have the community support behind me. That I haven’t created my tribe. That I need to do more. How will I ever be creative enough? How will I ever make it? Why should they pick me? Why do I stand out? How do I make myself stand out? I feel like I am just like every other newbie photographer out there with nothing unique to bring to the table. How can I make a difference? I made the plunge to put myself out there. I’ve been working on sharing my heart with and not just my photos on Instagram because I want to make a change. I want to be real with people. I want them to know my heart. I want to build a tribe that aren’t just followers, but are my friends. I want a community. Yes, that is what I want. That is why I want this trip. I want to be comfortable with the brand that I am creating. I want to be proud of it. I want to know that even little me can do it. That I can step out and be bold.
