One of my least favorite topics in the world to talk about is money. Don’t get me wrong, I love money and all the things money can buy for me and my family. And I love to see that what I’m charging for weddings – and what my coaching clients are charging for weddings – continues to increase. But the analysis of budgets and payroll and credit and assets….well, it’s not my superpower. So recently I hired an accountant who’s willing to take the time to talk strategy – to someone who’s “not a numbers person” – in words I can actually understand.
This episode is brought to you by The Planner’s Vault, my online membership site for wedding planners who are hungry to grow, ready to hustle, and actively seeking community and education. In the vault, there are 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 doors are currently closed for The Vault, but join the wait list now so you can be the first to know when the doors re-open.
