Last November, I was smart enough (that’s right, smart!) to sign up for the Sage Wedding Pros –Simple Plan– workshop. My good pals (and the most business savvy people I know) Michelle Loretta & Kelly Simants created this workshop to help small business owners become more confident, more efficient and best of all more successful!
When you are out there working on your own, its hard to remember to take time out to think about your message (branding), your financial goals, where your money comes from & where your money goes (and of course where it SHOULD go). There is SO much to learn and you get this awesome binder takeaway to remind yourself of what you learned AND there are Ning chats which are SO cool, you get to ask follow up questions & meet people in all of the cities who also attended the Simple Plan.
SOOOO the big news!! The girls are bringing the plan back to Seattle!! WHOOHOO!! So, if you want to be smart & be a better business owner
Sage Wedding Pros is a consultancy with a mission to create sustainable business in the wedding industry.
This July 12-13 they’ll be in Seattle with their business planning workshop, The Simple Plan. It is an

PLAN IN HAND, WRITTEN BY YOU.
