You know that feeling between pure adrenaline and dread. That was about my gut feeling when I started my business. I knew this was something I wanted to do. I knew I was ready for this next adventure. I just had no idea how everything would play out.
Seven years later and over 175 weddings, I’ve learned a ton! My two biggest takeaways?
#1. What you do matters, but how and why matter more.
We all search for purpose in our lives, especially in our work! I believe now more than ever that the most important part of your business isn’t what you do. It’s how you serve the people who come to your business and why.
#2. Collaboration creates synergy which propels us forward.
The times my business has grown the most haven’t been solely by my own efforts. Far from it. It’s been the times that I’ve sat down with other entrepreneurs, shared ideas and helped to solve problem areas. From the people I met with starting out to the educators I follow today, it’s a team effort.
Whether you’re a new entrepreneur or a few years in, I’m glad you’re here and I hope you’ll find some resources to help you continue to grow and thrive in your business.
Much Love Friends,
