I need to keep track of expenses!
I need to keep track of mileage!
I need a better computer!
I need more software!
I need back up hard drives!
I need a fire proof safe!

I need to go to networking meetings!
I need clients!
I need to team up with local businesses!

I need liability insurance! One day I'll need my own health insurance!
I need some consistent clients!
I need correct accounting records!

I need a cookie!
I need to get away for the weekend!
I need to separate work and life even though I work from home!
I need to expand my studio prop offerings!
I need to brush my teeth!
I need to keep in touch with college/study abroad classmates!
I need to go grocery shopping! I need to fill my car with gas!
I need to see the sunlight today (okay, maybe a little over dramatic).
I need to push for weekend shoots!
I need to make a budget and stick to it!
I need to create 30-60-90 day goals and fulfill them all!
I need to remember why I'm risking my mental, physical, and emotional wellbeing to embark on this crazy endeavor. Oh yeah, it's what I love to do. The end.
