Go Boutique Live! Virtual
VIRTUAL – February 15 -17
Three days packed with personal growth, a network of like-minded photographers, and hero marketing tactics and business skills? Unlike other events that focus more on the technical skills of photography, Go Boutique Live! is designed to walk photographers through the world of business, so that they can leave with a proven plan to start creating the career they have always dreamed of. Sarah Petty, mother, entrepreneur, and one of PPA’s most profitable photographers in America, has hired Tony Robbin’s event team to produce the virtual event for 1,000+ boutique photographers. Additionally, at GBL! Virtual, photographers learn how to make the income they deserve and put their family first. How? By finally finding portrait clients who are thrilled to pay $1,500+ per session for custom heirloom wall art.
