The Biggest Secret To Success

As I take a few moments to review the many visions, logos, and site designs we have had over the past few years, I can’t help but giggle a bit. It’s been a crazy journey; one that began in Denver, Colorado as a daydream and divine conversation in a park one sunny afternoon with my husband. I’ll never forget what a simple dream it was. I wanted to encourage women through their engagement season and create beautiful weddings that guests enjoyed. I wanted the creative freedom to run my own business and flexibility to make my own hours as a future mom. I never imagined what was ahead for this small business. I never dreamed that I’d have several full-time planners on my team in multiple cities, or that I’d be able to help other women experience the same joy of having a creative career they love, while allowing them to focus on their families.

It’s been a wild ride, filled with highs and lows, often feeling defeated or on top of the world all in the same day. It’s been a constant push of letting go before I was comfortable with it. And, a lot of mistakes and hard lessons along the way, all of which have shaped me into the business owner I am today. It’s with these experiences that I launched my Wedding Planner Academy and education resources, for those seeking the same adventure, but with a proven launch process and marketing method. They are filled with the questions and guidance I wish I had access to when I started this journey. It’s exactly what I’d share with someone starting their own creative business over a cup of coffee.

Luckily, I learned early on that I would be more successful and save myself a lot of time if I could delegate things I was not great at to those that were. Yes, I have struggled with how to do this and made many mistakes, but the freedom is well worth the cost.

Letting others participate and take ownership in Chancey Charm has propelled it much further than I could have alone. Having an incredible team, has given me valuable family time with my husband and son AND allowed me to do the things that I love in my business.

The BEST thing I have done in just over six years in the wedding industry is building a team and LETTING GO.

I encourage you to think about one thing you could let go of today to gain back valuable family time. Odds are, that this will actually propel your growth, as you let someone else’s strength fill your weakness.

What can you let go of today, that will propel your business forward?

Do you need branding or social media help? What about bookkeeping?  Need someone to train your team?

 

Cheers Friends!
