We are responding to Bojo’s announcement on Monday we have a roadmap are we any better off let's chat.

Starting off let’s look at the positives we have a map and a structure to work with.

  • This looks like a sound plan it’s cautious and padding is built-in for change. 
  • The staged approach to re-opening with the ability to pause a stage while the vaccines are being rolled out offering protection seems like a good solid plan.

    Valentine's day is one of the biggest days of the year for the Wedding Industry. Nearly 40% of all engagements happen between November and February starting with Thanksgiving in the USA and ending with Valentine's day. So wedding off-season is engagement marketing season and if you are going to stand out from the crowd you need to be different in some way.

    Lynnette is such a ray of sunshine in what has been a truly awful 11 months for us all. I discovered Lynnette on Instagram and from the first LIVE, I caught I was hooked. Her personality was just so apparent and the ability to smile through has been a pleasure to have on my feed. So if you don't follow Lynnette then head over to her Instagram and follow her.

    As a bridal hairstylist, she knows how difficult it has been for the we...

    If you are in the wedding industry you would have heard about the #whataboutweddings campaign. On today's episode, I was lucky enough to interview one of the initiators of the movement Tamryn Settle.

    Tamryn has been part of the wedding industry for 18 years starting as a wedding planning, only leaving to spend more quality time with her young son. The call of the wedding industry was too strong to resist though and Tamryn came b...

    In the final episode of 2020, I shout out some accounts and people who have brightened my days throughout the year with their positivity and perseverance. 2020 has seen the industry I love knocked off its feet unceremoniously yet you have all acted with dignity and grace. There has been hurt, anger and frustration to say the least, yet outwardly I have seen collaborations abound that there wouldn't have been time for in a norma...

    Firstly, two corrections to clear up from the Automation podcast 

  • I said Debbie set up Mums Ultd and the Shining star awards 3 years ago. Mums has been going a lot longer. It was the Awards that she introduced 3 years ago.
  • I said the podcasts take me so long it would be quicker for me to write a podcast. I obviously meant blog posts. I've got podcasts on the brain. Anyway, with that cleared up, the show notes are below but do tak...

    This week Baiju Solanki Performance Psychologist talks us through attitude, Not Attaching To Outcome (NATO) and taking control remembering it only influences results it doesn't guarantee them.
    This episode contains some tough love and some high praise. As an industry, I have seen both ends of the spectrum those who seem stuck in the victim mentality and then those who have given, shared and remained positive.
    I know that this pan...

    A short episode this week as I wanted to address just this one point of consistency during this messed up year.
    Being consistent regardless of what is going on behind the scenes of your business is so important. It shows couples that they can rely on you and that's important to them. Whether you get help from the government or not and regardless of needing to source other work opportunities or not showing up for your business co...

    Giveaways online to increase your leads 

    We are moving towards engagement session and under normal circumstances, you'd be booking wedding fairs for January February and March. However, it's unlikely to work that way this year so instead, I want to look at how you can attract your brides and grooms using giveaways on your social channels. 

    Part of creating a successful giveaway is having a consistent backlog of work and infor...

    Content is everywhere! We are told to have weekly content and we are told to post at least once a day on social and we are told to be consistent. But what we aren't told is without a strategy all of that is for nothing! So in this episode, we are going to look at how we can make our content work for us and how just one blog post can give us content for a whole month or more.

    Our thoughts are extremely powerful they determine everything we do and everything we feel. It is therefore extremely important that we pay attention to where our thoughts are leading us because sometimes our thoughts lie to us. From convincing us that the ice cream in the freezer won't hurt even though you've committed to clean eating to more serious lies like what other people MUST be thinking of you. 
    Thoughts can lead to...
