The Collective is having a wrap attack!

Keeping it fresh.

I apologize for the title of this post. It’s hard to keep it fresh. This is what happens.

I’ve worked this week on keeping The Collective fresh. I’ve set some goals for The Collective (some of which I’ll share next week) that I hope will push me to continue to create and curate great, informative content.

If you have a fresh idea, a fun story, or something you feel fits well into one of the photography, business, life categories I would love to see it. Check out the Submissions page for all the details.


The key to setting goals is making them actionable

Make your DREAM a reality. Set your 2012 goals!

A dream is a dream without concrete goals. Dane Sanders shared a post on his blog about making goals that are measurable. It lines up with what other business leaders have said throughout the years. Here’s how to do it.
