With 2016 coming to an end and 2017 right around the corner ..... it makes me reflect on the year, my weddings, clients and every experience in between.
I set a goal for myself to book 20 weddings for the year 2016. I am happy to say I booked 19! I am so beyond proud of myself for almost reaching my goal. Starting a business is not easy. It takes many hours, days, weeks and years to become something big. I started 2016 as a full time wedding planner. I quit my comfortable desk job to seek out something I was passionate about. I dedicated my year to solely building my business and creating relationships with bride & grooms from all over.
Each wedding I planned was so different from one another. Some of those weddings being close to perfect, others having minor hiccups. For every wedding I planned this year it not only taught me something new, but gave me the experience I need in order to be a great wedding planner. I was thrown into situations that many would break under the pressure. However, I found a way to accomplish each road block that stood in my way.
my goal for 2017 is to double my 2016 bookings. It might be ambitious, but I know if I put my mind to it, I can and will create it. "A goal should scare you a little, and excite you A LOT!"
