Pursuit 31 Los Angeles | June Meetup

This last Monday night I held a monthly  Pursuit 31 Meetup for our Los Angeles small group at my home. We had special Guest Tina Rider of Top of the Line Tax there to give us a mini business workshop all about Self Employed Photographers.  We discussed accounting for small businesses and what programs to use, tax obligations, quarterly estimated taxes, quarterly sales tax,  how to manage sales tax, tax write offs and what are not write offs, doing business in other states, W-9’s for second shooters and more.   Tina was kind enough to give us a thick packet of information complete with dividers. It was so helpful! I had such a good time getting to see these girls again and we managed to have fun even with all tax talk involved. We made yummy Italian Cream Sodas to keep us happy during the tax talk and afterwards snacked on apple chips, veggies, flautas and guacamole.  Also see my DIY Milk Glass Party Favor post for instructions on how to make the favors I gave out.

If you are interested in becoming part of our Pursuit 31 Los Angeles Small Group contact me and I can tell you more.

Pursuit 31 – sweet time with new friends

I had such a fun time at the my first Pursuit 31 meetup this month. For this meetup we did some book crafting using old books. A group of us walked over to The Last Book Store to buy some old books for our craft and it was so neat walking around that place. I could have spent hours in there just browsing through old books!

Back at Lukas & Suzy’s studio we made paper flowers, light switch plates and journals from our old books. We of course did a lot of chatting about business and personal stuff. That’s what we girls do best right? I so enjoyed being with ladies who love photography and desire to bring glory to God through their business and home. Having something so important to you in common with others gives an instant connection and friendship. I’m excited for these new friendships and future Pursuit 31 meetups.

If you are a photographer and would like to know more about these meetups check out the Pursuit 31 website to find a meetup near you. To find out more about the LA Meetup group head over to Lukas and Suzy’s blog.
