Your wedding business can only be as successful as your foundation and two of the biggest components of your foundation are your systems and your mindset. When you think about growing your wedding business, you probably think of marketing and book more clients but there is so much more to it than that. Your systems are what allow you to serve your clients and scale your business and your mindset can either prevent you from growing or supercharge your growth. It’s rare that I meet someone who is so well-versed in something as left-brained as systems and something as right-brained as the woo-woo side of mindset but this guest manages to cover both!
