I am SUPER excited that I've been invited back as a featured speaker at Wedding MBA this fall! Wedding MBA is a national conference of wedding vendors from all over the US held each year in Las Vegas. There are educational breakouts for specialties like beauty, florists, planners, DJs, photographers, etc., as well as large presentations that apply to any vendor in the wedding industry....plus a full scale trade show and awesome parties sponsored by iconic sponsors The Knot and Wedding Wire. If you're in the wedding industry and are interested in going, this year's event will be October 2-4, and you can find all the information here. Last year, I met so many fabulous people and had some really great discussions about how we approach our businesses. We're in such a unique industry...it's incredibly helpful to learn from each other!
As I prepare to speak again this year, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Wedding MBA Podcast host, Clint Hufft....an LA based celebrity officiant who, incidentally, married Ryan and Trista from the Bachelorette. Very cool! Clint will be interviewing all the featured speakers leading up to the conference this fall. We had a great chat last week! We covered a lot of bases....including my backstory of my journey into becoming a bridal beauty expert, including the one (pretty silly) thing I was letting hold me back. It led perfectly into one of my upcoming presentations this year, entitled "Breaking Bad: How to Set Yourself Apart from the Competition". (Here's a list of presentations from this year's event if you want to see more!) In the competitive wedding industry, that's not easy, and if you live in a large market like I do (Dallas Fort Worth is one of the biggest wedding markets in the country), it can be intimidating! I'll tell you a little bit about the journey I had to go through, the realization that some of the things I perceived to be different about me actually HELPED me become a bridal beauty expert, and my thoughts on the wedding industry and brides. You can find it on Itunes under the Wedding MBA show, or there's a direct link to the podcast here.
I hope you enjoy it, and if you're a wedding vendor.....I hope you'll join us and stop by to say hello at Wedding MBA this October! I'd love to meet you, and hear YOUR story. Have a great day everyone!
