Billi J Miller Photography
What or who inspired you to start your business?
I inspired myself……. after I had my first child, I decided going back to my current full-time position with Government wasn’t for me. So, I decided to make the leap to entrepreneurship doing what I loved to do – to take photos.
What are your most popular products or services?
I sell “Legacy Farm Packages” that provide farming families day in the life, unique photography that aim to serve as an heirloom keepsake for years to come.
What do you love most about what you do?
I fell in love with the permanence and pride of farm life. That is what I capture in my photography.
How do you balance being a mom and entrepreneur?
I prioritize and ensure undistracted workdays for myself – at least one per week. I book these days in my calendar and try to keep as organized as possible.
What single piece of advice would you give moms starting their business?
Make sure you’re doing what you love.
How do you relax?
I drive around in my vehicle, by myself, listening to Sirius Radio and take photos of country landscapes.
What place inspires you and why?
Where I live inspires me. I live in a place where there are a lot of 100+ year old farms. I imagine what things looked like then.
What is your biggest fear?
Having too many regrets. I try to cross off as much as possible off my “bucket to-do list” so that I can avoid them.
What is your motto?
I don’t know that I really have a motto – I would just say life is too short to spend time on what makes you unhappy. Do what you love and makes you feel alive.
What motivates you?
I want to be sure I’m happy doing what I do so that my daughter sees that growing up. I want her to strive for what makes her happy in life too..
What makes you GO?
Having a great idea that gives you goose-bumps – then, going after it and accomplishing it.
