AND PODCAST NOTES
When we listen to a podcast, we like to write down three key thoughts to take with us as we journey forward. Everyone connects to different pieces at different times. Here are a few to take with you!
the most important factor
GROW with intentionality and purpose
THE ENTREPRENEURIAL MINDSET AND OVERCOMING PERFECTIONISM
We have learned invaluable lessons from mentorship - from developing our entrepreneurial mindset to learning how to connect emotionally with our couples and manifesting this through our work. Mentorship can help you identify your blindspots and work through them.
In order to be successful, you must first have the unwavering belief that you can (and will) accomplish anything. Have your goals in front of you and take the steps to achieve them. Be unrealistic!
Perfectionism. Nobody's perfect. If you don't put your work out there, you'll never grow. Allow yourself to make mistakes.
There are two parts to communication...
Work together as a team to solve a problem instead of seeing the other person as the cause. We repeat, work together.
Communicate your brand's vision, communicate with your clients, and communicate with your network of vendors.
Regardless of the types of weddings you are currently getting, it is important to showcase imagery that will draw in your dream clientele. Jot down who your dream couple is. What’re their interests? Hobbies? Where do they hang out? Who’re they friends with? Where are they getting married? Adjust your voice to represent them! These people should align with your overall vision.
Be consistent across the board. Your website, your social media, your logo, the pricing/wedding/engagement guides you share with your couples...they should all be undeniably *insert your business name here!*
There are no ‘rules.’ Just because something works well for one business doesn’t mean it will work well for another. This applies to everything from deliverables to relationships. Everybody has their unique competitive advantages. Some people are extroverted, some introverted. Some are very hands on, some are more journalistic. Do what feels right for you.
Your business practices should reflect the realm you want to be in. Be prepared for your dream clients when they do come along. Educate yourself in conducting the services you're promising in the way your dream couples and fellow vendors would expect. Then, do more!
