If you are really struggling with getting your wedding business off the ground you probably need to analyze whether the issue is simple problems that need fixed, or whether you should even be in the business. All business owners have to ask themselves the question of whether they are in the right business at some point. It’s best to ask yourself this before ever getting started, but if you didn’t do it then, now is a good time as well.

It’s not that your business isn’t good. But does your product or service really sell and do you passionately love what you do? You see not everyone is cut out for being an entrepreneur. Just because you think you’d love being your own boss doesn’t mean you can actually handle the stress that puts on your life.

If you are having trouble getting brides to sign on with you there are two questions you need to ask. First of all, is there a demand for your product or service? Without demand already in place you aren’t going to be able to make a sale no matter how hard you try, and how good your product is. The second question is, are you able to communicate why someone would want to buy your product or service with brides? No matter how good you are you have to be able to communicate value and a need for what you do with the bride. If you can work through those issues then you are in the right business and should keep pressing forward with your business. Things will improve! Make sure to read Ken Sundheim’s article about figuring out if you can make it as an entrepreneur.

So (1) I think I am in the right “job/ministry” and (2) I learned something valuable – the couples we help are looking for someone who enjoys helping them. Not just someone going through the motions (“another wedding”) or with a fake smile, etc. Of course this will impact their ceremony, and if I had never specifically thought about that, they certainly have. And now I know.
