We just learned about this upcoming net working event that we wish we could go to. With the newest addition added to our family (we had a baby girl) she is keeping us busy and getting out of the house these days is limited! So we think you should go and have fun for us. Here is more info about the event and the line up of speakers. Find more info on getting tickets on their website Weddings Inspired Northwest.
Are you inspired? Is your soul on fire? Are you stimulated to create new energy and ideas in your business?
Do you have the time in tune with what you industry is doing? Do you give yourself time to fuel the fires of creativity and innovation? Are you on the cutting edge?
Do other complimentary businesses know who you are and what you do? Do other businesses refer their customers to you?
As the “slow time” set in for the beginnings of the 2014 Wedding season, I began to reflect (as I do, seemingly more and more) on the questions that I hear virtually all of my colleagues struggle with, year in and year out. Questions like, “what could I have done better”, “what did I miss”, “why didn’t THAT client book with me”, “what could I have done to prevent that bad review”, etc, etc…
Then it hit me – when do us Wedding Professionals ever take time out to reflect on ourselves? When do we take the opportunity to intermingle with our peers and friends to talk about the trends of the past year and those coming for the New Year? When do take the time to get some pampering for ourselves? So, I set out to create an event to do just that – set a day aside for us Wedding Professionals, to focus on ourselves. Yes, a day for us to be the recipient of information rather than the presenter, for a day of pleasure and enjoyment (how about a lunch cruise on beautiful lake Coeur d’Alene) and with some top notch education thrown in – but, without stress of making sure everything is going just right.
That is why I created Weddings Inspired Northwest. Do YOU want to be INSPIRED?!
*Inspire*, *Educate*, *Network*. At it’s core, WINW was created for YOU, the Wedding and Event Professional. We all strive to grow our businesses but all too often the energy, desire and determination to focus time on that growth – is lost in doing what you do best… create the best experience for your customers. So, this begs the question, are you taking care of you? Whether the answer to that question is no, maybe or even yes – join us for the WINW event and be prepared to be *Inspired*, *Educated* and *Network* with some of the industry experts.

When Misty isn’t bringing her infectious smile and unwavering positive outlook to Brides and Clients alike, she’s taking it home to family and friends where she loves warm summer nights at the lake, cooling off in one of our many lakes or rivers, or sitting on the porch watching the sunset. Some other fun facts: Faith in Jesus, Lemonade is best at the fair and only with lots of ice, road trips require a clean car before departure, sushi is best with rice paper vs seaweed, water is best out of a plastic cup, and the family cabin is her favorite place to be on earth, even when we have to let the bats out
