BBQ wedding

There can be innumerable obstacles when you start a wedding business, and it seems as though they multiply the further you go while trying to reach the luminous goal of “making it.” Some of the obstacles that stand in your way however may be things that you are triggering yourself.

  • First off, don’t second guess your expertise. If you don’t believe in yourself and your product then who will?
  • Second, don’t shy away from sales. Just because you don’t feel comfortable with asking for people’s money doesn’t mean that you can’t do it. Your product is valuable and you need to sell it, not just explain to people how great it is.
  • Third, don’t support people who won’t appreciate it. The wedding industry is all about networking, but you need to make sure that the people you network with will appreciate it, and send sales your way also.
  • And finally, don’t sit around waiting for the perfect time. There is no better time than right now, and if you keep waiting for that perfect opportunity you’ll find that you passed it long ago.

    Thank you so much for the article. Kind of interesting that my husband and I were just talking about this topic last night…the multitude of outside influences in this industry and how sometimes they can impact your frame of mind from hour to hour. When there are multiple channels feeding into your perspective it can cloud your motivation, focus and make you doubt yourself. Sometimes you have to turn the newsfeed off and listen to yourself and your supporters.

    1. Amen to that, Chelle!

      Sometimes it makes sense to “fire your friends” or at least see them less often when they have a negative influence. And firing the news is a definite in my book!

      A good test for something is to ask, “Is this feeding me? Is this helping me?”

      If the impact of something or someone is primarily negative, it’s probably holding us back.
