December’s meeting is a social meeting and awards presentation meeting. We are looking to renew a tradition of a December restaurant location that welcome invited spouses and families. In years past this was a formal dress event. Attire for the evening is at your discretion, but some of us will be looking our best. This evening is a time to reflect back, show appreciation to each other (our presence is our presents to each other) and to look forward professionally as a photographer and a guild member.

Do these thoughts ever cross your mind?
Stressed? Puzzled? Sound Familiar?
Some or most of these thoughts go through our minds on a daily or weekly basis. Bill will be discussing how he does his Online "LIVE" presentations from his home office, Bill will also discuss what software programs you can use, some of which are free and some which need to be purchased.
Bill will review studio management programs that will assist you in running your day to day business from existing programs, QuickBooks, Excel, Google Docs or a specific management program. In addition Bill will discuss how to price your products and how to develop your hourly rate. What worked in the past is always subject for review. Now is the time to make changes that you can implement for your 2014 business year! Bill will provide you with the tools that needed to efficiently run your Photography "BUSINESS".
“YES!”, Bill said "BUSINESS!" and you should run it like one!
