  1. Good luck, Amy! I can't wait to see how you get on. I'm hoping to get my goals done for this week - so this is somewhat more ambitious! You've got some great things on here :)

  2. Great idea for a post - I might have to copy.

  3. yay go Amy! Glad you're doing it to, we can keep egging each other on. :) xx

  4. Wow I absolutely LOVE THIS! I first saw a 101 in 1001 on Jessica Claire's blog and have wanted to do one ever since, just haven't gotten around to it. I think it's such an awesome idea and I absolutely love all of your goals, so you have inspired me to get on it and make one! But before I do ...

    For website design I vote SHOWIT! :D

    Purchasing the 85mm 1.2 would be on my list too :)

    And i LOVE the idea of a personal blog! I was toying with the idea as well, can't decide .. hmm!!

    For this one: Decide on packages and prices .. try these links:


    Get in touch with me about the facebook and twitter followers, I might be able to help you there.

    To keep track of your weight and motivate you to keep at it while you lose the stone, I have a friend who used this app MyFitnessPal. It helps you record what you eat and really helps break it down for you and letting you know if you succeeded your eat/exercise for the day and how long it would take you to lose what you want. I'm explaining it horribly but apparently it's very good.

    "Learn to use photoshop to it's full potential" .. do an online tutorial every week, and you'll be on your way.

    Run 3 times a week >> there's no way to do this except to start now and JUST DO IT! :)

    For the workflow, try these links:





    Learn to use my flash properly - this will be on my list too!

    Offer my clients something unique - you already do- you!

    Inspire someone - you have inspired me with this list! Check!

    Blog at least 3 times a week - my advice for this is to plan all of your blog posts in advance, and make sure you're posting quality and not quantity. And make sure every blog post has a purpose to build your brand/business.

    Ahhh love it! Hopefully next week when I'm in Florida I'll give mine a go :)

    Thanks for this awesome post! And sorry for my mahoooosive comment!

  5. This is brilliant Amy! I can relate to so many of your 101 :) re the 85... check out the Sigma 1.4. I got it last week and its great... maybe hire both and see which you get on with best. I found the Canon very slow to focus in low light (duh.) and the sigma a lot better. Quality is amazing too and its only a little slower at 1.4 but not much (and £1000 cheaper!)


  6. oh and on number 66 - are you doing the Featherlove workshop!?

  7. Great list. I keep meaning to do one of these but then feeling a bit terrified of having such a long to do list. Maybe I should just bite the bullet and then get ticking things off!

  8. Hi there - just saw this post via ShutterRock and LOVE it! Well done for getting it down in the first place - RESPECT!! Hope you have a great time completing it.
