Annemie Tonken is an incredible family and portrait photographer from the Chapel Hill area of North Carolina as well as a photography business coach with This Can’t Be That Hard.
In episode 30, Annemie shares a lot of her history with money including when both her attorney and a financial advisor told her that her business wouldnt sustain her. “I was already living on a shoe string budget,” she says, and when her financial advisor told her to spend less, she thought she would take the more fun route of making more money per session!
This led her on a quest to find a balance between the all-inclusive style of photography and IPS (In-Person Sales) all while managing her money, being a mom to two boys, and increasing her bottom line.
What I love about this episode is that its so much about perseverance in wading through the shit that life sometimes throws at you and finding a new way even if that means going against the grain!
