A good friend of mine started a new business this year – she is AMAZING. Beyond amazing. Then another friend who I admire more than anything joined her. Now – two super successful incredibly intelligent wonderful women run a business that helps us (you and me) be better business owners. That’s right – their website each day gives us tips on how to setup, start & run a successful business – they talk about how to sign & keep clients, how to run a business w/o losing your mind (or your personal life) & now they are having a workshop for wedding professionals. (or wannabe wedding professionals). I want to be there & I know you will too!!
I’m sure you are dying to know more!! Okay – so Michelle Loretta & Kelly Simants started Sage Wedding Pros and on November 6-7 they are having a workshop at Hotel Andra where you will spend two full days with some amazing buisness minds and will walk away with the tools and the knowledge you never even knew existed!! Click HERE to read more on the workshop. (or scroll down to the bottom and see a blog re-post)
So here is the fun part – you can buy tickets OR you can be cool like me and submit your Soul Story and WIN tickets!! (who doesn’t love a good contest!!) Your SOUL story is the moment you realized you knew what you were going to do – your passion for your business is the reason you spend day and night thinking about your business and how lucky you are to be doing what you love! For an example – read Michelle’s Soul story by clicking HERE – then write yours and submit it online HERE.
