Rhiannon Bosse believes in the power of celebration. As founder and creative director of Rhiannon Bosse Celebrations, she has helped thousands around the world plan weddings and toast other milestones with a distinct blend of class and contagious joy, all of which prompted VOGUE and BRIDES Magazine to name her one of the top wedding planners in the world.
Known for her innovative design capabilities, Rhiannon’s work is unique and incredibly distinguishable. Her events, editorial work, and writing have been published in The Knot, BRIDES, Southern Weddings, Cottage Hill, and Bridal Guide, as well as featured on a number of their covers.
In addition to serving discerning clientele all over the world, Rhiannon founded The Trouvaille Workshop, a four-day educational experience for multifaceted wedding planners. Over 100 women attended the workshop from 2014 to 2017, including business owners from across the United States, Canada, Brazil, and the U.K.
Rhiannon hails from Burlington, Ontario but lives in Rockford, Michigan in the cozy home she and her husband built in 2011. She loves Friday dates with her two boys, Lachlan and Ev, making a mess in her 900-square-foot home studio, and trying to find a reliable from-scratch cinnamon roll recipe. She dreams of the day she gets to dance with her sons at their weddings (which she’ll obviously help plan and design).
On today’s episode of The Power in Purpose Podcast with Rhiannon Bosse:
- Rhiannon talks about why she decided to incorporate florals into her wedding planning and design business and the year process she undertook to add floral designer to her resume
- The tipping point that led Rhiannon to discover her multifaceted purpose, and how feelings of being a “fraud” or being misunderstood helped her to dig deeply in uncovering her purpose
- Do you feel like you only need to be known for one thing, and it’s weighing on your heart? Rhi struggled with the same concept, and we discuss why this philosophy doesn’t suit everyone, and that it’s okay to be multifaceted, multi-passionate, and have more than one purpose.
- Rhiannon gives you clear and straightforward advice on how to uncover why it is you do what you do and how to quiet the noise that often gets in the way
- With all of the businesses and facets to Rhi’s career, it would be easy for her to get overwhelmed. She uses a simple strategy to stay focused, and we discuss how you can use this strategy too
- When Rhi started her business, she intentionally looked toward the future and asked herself, “what kind of life do I want?” She encourages you to ask that same question now, no matter where you are in your entrepreneurial journey
- Rhi offers us a sobering reminder that the idea that we’ll have a ‘certain kind of life or business’ when we reach a ‘certain age’ isn’t attainable. Ask yourself, why can’t I have this now?
- We talk about intention, and Rhi shares a philosophy she’s adapted from her life coach about splitting your time between things that need to get done vs. things you want to savor. It’s an eye-opening look at how we tend to speed through everything in life, especially through the moments we should stop to appreciate and enjoy
- Prone to apologizing all the time — to friends, family, and clients? Rhi wants you to rethink the apology and offers a solid tip
- Time is our most precious commodity — how are you going to spend yours?
- Imposter syndrome is real, especially when it comes to social media. If you are struggling with social media affecting your confidence, usurping your time, getting caught up in comparison, or one of the many side effects we’re ALL experiencing online — Rhi shares her journey in powering down and intentionally walking away from social media
- Next, Rhi recommends coming up with a simple mission statement for how you want to use social media
- It's time for you to get back to trusting your instincts, and Rhi shares how to move through the information overload of our time and do things your way
- Who inspires Rhiannon and lives in their purpose every day? Emily Thomas from Cultivate What Matters. Check out her blog, Em for Marvelous!
