This is an extremely deeply researched and intuitive article! I really enjoyed reading it! Something that really isn't noted is how fast entrepreneurs have to grow in order to keep up with the upward trends.
As a photographer, my skills have to keep evolving as well as my portfolio. My portfolio is pretty great right now, but the client-base that will be shopping for photographers in the next five years may find my techniques outdated. How they find me, contact me, sign my contracts, and pay me also has to evolve. I've gone 100% digital with my contracts, use google voice phone number for customers to reach me with ease, and use websites like smugmug and squarespace to create beautiful portfolios for my prospecting visiters interested in my photography. I even accept cash, check, credit card, debit card, venmo, paypal, and zelle to make it easier for customers to pay me.
The growing market of entrepreneurs is beautiful and promising, but it also means saturation and high levels of competition. Are you all ready for that?
