When I started my aerial photography business, I started small. I spent time on the weekends and after work doing my research on clients, reaching out to them and getting my photos taken, processed and delivered. As I got busier, I slowly took off days at my full-time job so I could do my aerial photo work. It started as the occasional day off once a week, to one day a week off, to two days a week off, and after that, I decided to go full-time. There were bumps along the way and valuable lessons learned. I am glad I had the financial security of my full-time job when I started my own business.
