Boasting the title of "entrepreneur" often means bearing the burden of wearing many hats - especially for small business owners. Not only are you responsible for coming up with the ideas behind the business, but you are often stuck with handling the financials, the marketing, the sales, the communications, and the logistics. It's a tough job, made a little easier when equipped with the right time-saving tools.
Trying to work from home when you're running your own business can be distracting. When your work life and your family life share the same roof, it can be easy for the lines to blur. Lunch breaks become tidy-the-house breaks, downtime becomes riddled with work interruptions, and multitasking becomes mandatory as you toggle between work and play - around the clock.

The photo booth business is FUN; but what is less often talked about, is that the photo booth business can also be very profitable too. You can actually make a living, doing what you love.

There are pros and cons to both business models.

Over the past decade, the photography industry has experienced exponential growth. The statistics that circulate photography based apps show that not only do people love taking photos, they love sharing their photos too.
