So, why is writing a wedding business plan important?

Here's a fun statistic: did you know that people who write down their goals are 42% more likely to achieve them?

The same principle can be applied to strategies for your wedding business. I'm talking about strategies like sales, ideal clients, marketing, and growth.

They’re all the same in that when you develop these areas on paper, you’re much more likely to see them through to success.

What is a business plan?

A biz plan is an overarching strategy for the who, what, how, when, and most importantly, the why.

And let's face it, the why is why we’re all here and why YOU listen to our podcast!

You take strategies you would have in your company: your ideal clients, marketing, sales, competitive analysis… and you map out a plan for them. 

A business plan is an overarching strategy for the who, what, how, when, and the why.

In today's episode, I'm sharing the 5 things a business plan will reveal about your wedding business. I will walk you through my philosophy about business plans, share the 5 strategies it will reveal, and give you tips on how to jumpstart the process.

What does a biz plan accomplish?

It requires you to think deeply about what you want for your future, who you want to serve, and how you will get there.

Writing a business plan has the power to transform your biz.

But I get it.

It’s not like I’m sharing 5 ways to make millions of dollars…. But….. it is the secret sauce to building and scaling a business that will last and maybe make you a million dollars.

It will definitely reveal if your business is even capable of making a million dollars.

After you listen to the episode, be sure to download your Free Business Plan Template, Outline & Guide. This free template helps to take the fear out of writing a biz plan and will get you past the dreaded blinking cursor.

Who you think you’re emailing vs who is actually responding 💀

I had to jump on this one because it was too funny 😂 Fun times at #trinidadcarnival on Jouvert morning! I definitely enjoyed myself, my wig, and the corn soup.

We all put on a polished front but I think who we are behind the scenes and away from our desks is way more interesting and relatable! Here’s some encouragement to make a reel like this too and show off your personality 😆 #relatable #behindthescenes
We were long overdue for a shank and cuddle. 🫶🏼 ilysm and tag your bestie who needs to hear this pep talk too and for the love of Pete STOP PROCRASTINATING 😘 #motivation #procrastination #candicecoppola #weddingindustry #weddingpros #weddingvendodors #smallbusiness #peptalk #shankandcuddle
Should you be on TikTok? That’s a question I get asked a lot - and it should come as no surprise that I have some STRONG feelings about this.
