In 2012, Julie Bunkley had run Invision Events in Birmingham Alabama for 7 years, and the business was doing…fine. But it wasn’t growing. She knew that to grow, she had to find a true #2, not just someone to help out at weddings. She was lucky enough to hire Courtney Wolf, and the two of them have been a dynamic duo ever since. On the show today, they talk about hiring for your #2, and keeping them engaged and happy.
In addition to Invision, Julie and Courtney also run the Educate | Empower | Encourage Community
Weddings for Real is brought to you by The Planner’s Vault, a membership site for wedding planners who are hungry to grow, ready to hustle, and actively seeking community and education. In the vault, there will be guest experts on many topics relevant to growing and cultivating a successful event planning business with new content added consistently, plus all of my templates that I have built out over the years like How to Get on Preferred Vendor Lists, The Client Experience, and more. The mission with the vault is to elevate the industry (along with some amazing experts and fellow entrepreneurs) and I want it to be affordable so it’s possible to stay invested in the community and yourself for the long haul.
**The Planner’s Vault is closed for new members, but you can join the wait list for when it opens its doors in August.**
