Before I announce the winners of the eBook giveaway I’d like to take a moment to thank everyone who submitted an entry. I was so impressed by everyone who took the time to email and tell me about their journeys into this industry. Starting a business is never easy, especially in a creative field, never mind the current economic climate…
It was really tough to narrow the pool down to only five winners. Really. Tough. I received entries from all around the globe, heard stories of layoffs, heart attacks, and new babies. I was inspired many times over and hope that everyone, winner of the giveaway or not, will periodically keep in touch and let me know how your business is doing.
In the end, the winners were chosen based on a few things: their “glass is half full” optimistic attitudes and resolute belief that with hard work they will be successful with their business; their appreciation for everything Scott and Larry have contributed, not only in this giveaway, but over the past several years; and their passion for everything that I think Scott, Larry and I believe in – beautiful photography, marketing, sharing knowledge, and support of each other in this field.

2) Mike Lefebvre at MeetingHouse Media
3) Saul Goodwin, representing the Down Under folks from Byron Bay
4) Kiera Condrey at kieramarie.com
5) Karen Kane from Real Estate Tours Online
And, because his story is *MY* story and I identified with where he’s at and where he’s going so completely, I convinced Larry and Scott (who didn’t need much convincing after they read through all the finalists’ emails) we opened it up to six winners:
6) Alex Baugh from Arlington, TX
