We had the good fortune of connecting with Cathi Nelson and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Cathi, what do you attribute your success to?
My core belief is “a rising tide lifts all boats.” This guiding principle has been critical to my success because I started an organization that supports a global profession that is just emerging. My goal has been to always strive for the best outcome, whether for our professional community or the general public who seek our courses and advice.
What should our readers know about your business?
Hi, I’m Cathi Nelson, the CEO and founder of The Photo Managers. For over two decades, I’ve supported people in building thriving photo organizing businesses to help families all over the world preserve and share their stories. What’s amazing is, I never set out to identify and build a new profession.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
All the professional photo organizing entrepreneurs who said yes to starting a business. We would not be today’s successful, thriving community if those early pioneers hadn’t said yes and then passed on their skills to others. I have kept this favorite quote by Brene Brown on my desk because of how true the concept is when starting a business, “It’s OK to be brave and afraid at the same time”
