Do you often feel like you’re running around like a chicken with its head cut off with way too much to do? You’re not alone. Today you’re going to learn how you can create freedom in your business and your life and it isn’t as hard as you might think.
Today’s Guest: Nathan Holritz
Nathan Holritz is an entrepreneur based in Chattanooga, TN. Starting in professional photography 11 years ago, Nathan helped bring a modern style of premium wedding photography to the Chattanooga market via Holritz Photography.
While helping run Holritz Photography, Nathan saw both a personal and industry need for a company that could handle the post-processing of the thousands of images photographed at weddings. He created Photographer’s Edit, a company geared toward providing a simple solution for professional photographers to outsource this post-processing following weddings and large events. The company was launched in 2008, and has continued to grow since.
In addition to Photographer’s Edit, Nathan runs a lifestyle brand at ihavealife.com, helping photographers and other entrepreneurs regain and maintain the freedom that can come from running their own business.
