What Happen to Chimeras Dream?
It took 24hours, but I got it done! Whats a few emails, a couple of nasty messages to let you know "I'm not stupid, I GET IT!" to me? A 28 young man, tip toeing between life changing decisions and full leaping into my dreams? NOTHINGGGG!
This week, I decided to do a bit of rebranding. Nothing too major, I just changed my Facebook pages back to "Gavin Boulware Photography from Chimeras Dream".
To me, the change was vital and I'm 99.9% sure I lost business because people couldn't pronounce Chimeras & it was harder to locate on Facebook versus my name.
So what will happen to Chimeras Dream
The dream has always been the same. TO HELP. When I first started Chimeras Dream I didn't want to take pictures. (Sorry to disappoint). I never liked taking pictures, per say. Too many times while taking pictures, you have little to no control. Okay, Im lying, you have a lot of control, but for me, too many things are out of my control. The weather, the client being on time, what your client does with your work, people stealing your images (I literally found my images on a random creeps page). Pictures were never my thing, however I do like, it just wasn't MY DREAM.
Chimeras Dream started while I was in college and notice tons of my friends where finding their passion and nobody was showcasing their talents, their vision, their dream. I wanted to create a brand to showcase their dreams, in hopes of reaching the masses. Over time, I wanted to do more than showcasing, I wanted to help them achieve, whether that was through graphic design, web design and, or...yup you guessed it, PHOTOGRAPHY! :D
So Chimeras Dream hasn't been eliminated. Its simply evolving. In the next few weeks I plan on releasing my plan to help organizations, specifically small business owners and churches, rebrand themselves! When we start a business, pride blocks us from giving assistance, but also it blocks us from asking for help. Trust me, Ive been on both sides of the coin and it sucks.
I hope you join me on this journey. Lets be great, together!
