“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...”
~ Dr. Seuss
When I decided to start my own business, I had a million reasons why I shouldn’t. I used to read ‘oh the places you’ll go’ by dr. suess (still do) to inspire and reassure myself that the world is in my hands. My primary focus was quality, quality customer service, quality planning and quality design. So when couples/ clients look back, hiring me was an investment, alleviation of stress. I didn’t want my name on anything that was not up to my standard, I saw everything I did as my brand - my business cards, my website, every event.
I had a 1 year, 3 year, 5 year and 10 year plan.
My 3 year plan was getting into WedLuxe (for those of you who don’t know), WedLuxe is the PRADA off all things wedding. When I got the email to be apart of the WedLuxe show I was elated. My 3 year plan came to me 2 years early.
For someone who has wanted to be a planner/ designer since I was 14/15 ... this is more than I could have asked for, so soon into starting my business. This message really is for any little girl reading this (esp my sister @freya.harlyn
) whatever dream you have, with enough passion and persistence, it can become your reality, the world is literally in your hands. Speak these things into existence ... anything is possible!
This year was full of sacrifices, commitment and structure (seriously my personal Instagram is dryyyy). I’m hella emotional writing this, but all happy tears and smiles. Can’t wait to see everyone at the show ♡
