When I made my New Years nonresolutions there was one thing that I desperately wanted to include but didn't.
This year I'm making a change that will impact my future.
I'm starting a business.
I loved planning our wedding, I researched everything 20 times over and came out of it with a knowledge that most brides don't have.
Word got around (and people saw the pictures & heard the stories of our wedding) and in the 4 months since our wedding I'm working with 4 couples.
I couldn't be more overjoyed to be planning weddings. I love being able to use the wedding knowledge I learned to help make other brides planning go smoother, and so far all of the response I've gotten from my brides has been positive.
I ordered business cards from the wonderful Downtown Paper & Press after I got tired of scrawling my information on random pieces of paper and have been handing them out whenever possible.
I'm starting out slow and seeing where this takes me, it would be awesome to make a career out of planning but if all I do are the three weddings this year I'll be happy with that.
(Who am I kidding, I totally want to become the next Ashley Meaders)
So there you have it, folks, a new adventure, a big leap of faith, and a business without an official name.
PS If you have any good ideas for a name I'd love to hear them!
