People, it's real. I had no clue when I started this journey that my free time would be consumed with business-y things. (PS- this is not me complaining...I am merely sharing my surprise at how much goes into running a business!)
I used to teach classes to aspiring cosmetologists. I'd tell them about marketing, creating a career plan, developing a strategy, and finding mentors. That information HAS BEEN SO USEFUL to me over these past few months. Because I taught that information so many times, I thought I already had a clue. NOT!
You know what my Saturday night looked like? Jammies by 5:45, Jurassic Park 1-3, and crafting. For hours. I'm sending a few goody bags to some vendorfriends, and I wanted to make sure they would be super special. So I worked on them for 5 hours. Honestly, I wouldn't go back and do it over again because I am so pleased with the outcome. But goooooodnesss. Haha!
When I think of all the legal things I have yet to do, I start to get overwhelmed. That's not really my forte. I love the people aspect of it all. But if all the business-minded stuff is what brings me closer to my dream of being a wedding planner, then I'm going to do it. I'm going to love it. And when all that is finished, I'm going to sit back and reward myself with THIS Southern Weddings planner.
Thanks for staying around for my struggle. I am so thankful for the tremendous support! Because of you, it's all worth it!
