Monday Motivation – Live Brave

Show Up, Be Seen, Live Brave

A couple of weeks ago I quoted one of Academy Advisor Zoe McKeown’s Inspire archive posts, on our Wedding Academy Live Facebook page. Zoe referenced one of her family’s favourite mantras “Fortune favours the brave”.
Taking the first steps in making a career change by enrolling with us, or launching your business as an Academy graduate, requires you to be brave and be bold.
Show Up. You need to be self motivated, work hard and ‘show up’ for your online lessons. Set yourself study and career goals throughout the year.
Be Seen. You could be the most talented wedding or event professional, but if you don’t shout about that talent who will know? Practice self promotion and marketing. The private academy Facebook group is the best place to start, in a safe and nurturing environment.
Live Brave. We are not all naturally brave but your course will have taught you fundamental facts and skills, given you amazing experience and support, and given you a platform to celebrate your successes. Harness all that positivity and Live brave!
