From Day Job to Dream Wedding Business

written by


Imagine you’ve made the decision to launch your Dream Wedding Business. Congratulations! I’m excited for you. But what about what comes next?

How do you deal with those niggling doubts? Those fears that always seem to creep into the back of your mind.

How do you convince yourself that you’re not going to fail, and everything will be alright?

I have to be honest with you there’s no crystal ball to show you what your business might look like in 2 years’ time.

You probably will feel vulnerable, exposed and uncomfortable at times and you have to be ok with that.

I think we all believe deep down that if we fail at business it means we ourselves are failures. We know it’s not true, but those dark thoughts are stronger than the positive ones.

How do I know this?

Because I’ve been there. I know what it’s like to second guess yourself, talk yourself out of things and basically get in your own way.

I want to help you. Move you past this and give you something you can always pull out every time you need a dose of self-belief.

This letter I’ve written to you should be printed out and kept somewhere within easy reach for those moments of insecurity, procrastination and uncertainty.

My Letter To You

Dear friend,

Right now at this moment in time you’re exactly where you’re meant to be. You’re doing an incredible job and you’ve already achieved so many little wins.

Remember, this being in business thing is so much bigger than you and it’s a process.

Believe in your own abilities and the reasons why you started this wedding business in the first place.

You’ve got this and you’re one of the most resourceful people I know. If anyone can make this thing happen it’s you.

Listen to your gut instinct and don’t let those pesky doubts overshadow what you know is true.

We all make mistakes and that’s good because it means you’re learning, putting yourself out there and evolving. It’s only a mistake if you don’t learn from it.

Stop stalking your competition and doing the comparison analysis. Nothing good will come of it.

Slowly does it. One step at a time.

Break things down into smaller and more manageble goals and focus on taking at least one action step every day.

Things never happen as quickly as we want them to and remember, there’s no such thing as an overnight success. If there was we’d all be millionaires.

Look at what you’ve already achieved.

Enjoy it. Be proud of it and celebrate it.

But above all else enjoy the journey. Be present in the journey and enjoy the rollercoaster ride that is being in business.

And never forget a problem shared is a problem halved. You have a team of people just waiting to cheer you on as part of our Wedding Business Community.
