An Introduction & Thankyou 2019⠀ Goodbye decade.⠀
Today’s first post for Sophie Callahan ‘s
#myruralbusinessjan20 challenge. (pic credit also goes to Sophie too from our amazing shoot in Sep 19)⠀
I’ve never been great at sticking to this. I got Sophies yearly insta prompts last year and they were great to use and you can still be flexible with them if you’re stuck for content ideas.⠀
If you don’t know me already my name is Martha Lily I am 24, I am an Aries and those close to me definitely know this.⠀
“Aries is a passionate, motivated, and confident leader who builds community with their cheerful disposition and relentless determination. Uncomplicated and direct in their approach, they often get frustrated by exhaustive details and unnecessary nuances.”⠀
This is me to a tee.
I have a huge passion for horses, art and making people happy. Kindness is free 💖💖⠀
I have been truly honoured but also worked hard for creating a business from my loves.
From Equine portrait shoots to events.⠀
Most recently Brands too.⠀
This decade has been a whirlwind and I’ve grown so much but, 2019 really has been the best yet in terms of success.⠀
Looking back although a little burnt out. (I think a lot of us feel this way at the end of a year, maybe because we know it’s the end of the year too.)
2019 has been the best so far. We have worked so hard.⠀
77 events & 75 photo shoots all a mixture of Equine, Canine and Business.
That’s over 150 combined!
With all this in mind, it’s safe to say I’ve learnt a lot too. From money to emotions. To holding yourself accountable to really knowing you’re worth.
Happy new year everyone, I can’t wait to see what the future holds!
