049 | How to Stop Procrastinating about your Photos

Are you procrastinating about doing something with your photos? Have you EVER procrastinated about doing something with your photos? Join Fiona Staff and Chantal Imbach as they help guide you through the steps to stop procrastinating about your photos.
