Welcome to the crazy world of owning your own wedding business! As you’ve come to realize, there are a lot of challenges to running your wedding business. It isn’t simple. You are now in charge of every single decision that has to be made which can be challenging. But if you are up to the challenge running a business is rewarding and can be quite fun.
The starting place is to be open to a major mental change in regards to how you view your work. It isn’t a job. It’s a business. A job is something that you show up and do day after day. Someone else is in charge of your life, and you have a standard set of things you do all the time. A business on the other hand is like the full piece of machinery. You’re not a cog in the works; you run the entire thing, make the decisions and control what happens. If you treat it as a job your business will go nowhere and you will be controlled by every whim a bride has. This is exhausting and can destroy your business. On the other hand if you take control and run it as a business you can set the rules and procedures to build a successful, thriving business that will last for years to come.
