Spring & Summer 2019 Powersheets

Jul 15, 2019

Yes, I know. I am VERY behind on posting my Powersheets posts, but in all honesty, a LOT has been going on. I had my hardest wedding season to date (not because of the what I had to do, but because it was the longest one so far!) and then, the best thing happened, I got ENGAGED. I will definitely post that story later, but having to get the basics of my wedding planning done during a busy wedding season was hard!

Onto today’s topic, my goals for the Spring and Summer. I tried to get a lot done this past Spring, but then I finally figured out it was more important to focus on my clients than try to push my business to the next level. Because in business, your client should always come first!

Are you interested in seeing my previous posts? Feel free to take a look through here:
