Weddings For Real Podcast: Why You Need a Business Plan

The tables have turned! I'm excited to share a conversation I had with Megan Gillikin, host of The Weddings For Real Podcast, all about my journey, why purpose is so important, and why YOU need to write a business plan.

I know–writing a business plan is about the most unsexy thing ever when it comes to building your business.

But it's important.

The truth is, it's so important that I asked Megan if we could sit down and chat about it in detail.

In this episode of The Weddings For Real Podcast, I share

  • Why you should write a business plan
  • How to start writing a strategy for your business
  • When you should revisit your business plan and
  • The changes you can expect to experience after writing one

I want you to dive in and write a strategy for your business, which is why I created my FREE Business Plan Outline + Guide, to give you a jumpstart on creating a strategy for your business that works. Click here to learn more and grab a copy!

Megan Gillikin, the owner of A Southern Soiree, is a wonderful podcast host! On the Weddings For Real Podcast, real wedding vendors share their tips and tricks for surviving and thriving in this one of a kind industry.

I love that she's created a voice for our industry, and is committed to sharing the true stories behind some of your industry favorites — and people you may not know but should be paying attention to!
