As Mindy Weiss has said to many of us in the wedding industry, we all have the “disease to please”. We are addicted to helping others! Whether it be to guide couples in planning their big day or assisting wedding businesses grow and thrive- many of us love to give! Wedding professionals revolve around making the bride and groom’s day as amazing as possible. I’m the same way with my business and what I love most about my job is inspiring and motivating others to regroup, refresh and renew.
While I think it’s important to always remember that being grateful gives back, the holiday seasons gives us even more reason to remember this. Helping others professionally or personally, being thankful to others that have helped you and maintaining a humble attitude about your accomplishments will keep more business coming through your door than anything else. When your industry peers know you’re a grateful person that appreciates and cherishes the opportunities you’re given, they’re more inclined to keep giving. Make your gratitude known by always giving back. Whether it’s a thank you card, a small gift or an hour of your time spent with someone, giving a piece of yourself without expecting anything in return is the best gift in life.
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I want to show gratitude to everyone that has helped me get to where I am by paying it forward. I’m giving away a complimentary one-hour consulting session for January! I’m excited to work with someone who is inspired to make changes in their businesses, grow and take their brand to the next level.
