Law School for Wedding Pros!

Every week I get emails or phone calls from people asking about the wedding industry – wether its to intern, to assist or questions about how to handle client situations.  I’m happy to answer these questions – but usually my answer is “This is what works for me” its never a rock solid – “This is what you should do for success” answer.  (I wish!)

Now finally the wedding industry has some RAD options for solid answers – the kind that gives you firm ground to stand on, the kind that gives you confidence!!

So – if you are starting your business I have two rock solid places to send you ::  Sage Wedding Pros Simple Plan Workshop (to brand yourself & build a business plan) & Law School for Wedding Professionals!  (to make sure you are protected!)

Law School for Wedding Professionals – Seattle Workshop is coming up soon – in one month!! Here are the details

When: Monday, December 5th, 9 am – 6 pm

Where: Hotel Andra

Registration includes the all-day workshop with breakfast and lunch (led by the smart & talented Attorney Katy Carrier covering topics like contracts, insurance, business structuring, trademarks and copyrights, employment issues, social media and more), and the registrants have the option of adding on the review and revision of their client contract or independent contractor/employee agreement.  The website is, and the direct registration page for Seattle is here.  There is an early bird registration rate that is good through Tuesday, November 15th.
