A #lblweds couple spotted on my timeline. This groom was SUPER happy and excited might I add to marry the girl of his dreams as he reminded me. Who would have thought after 20+ years that these two would cross paths again. A love story still being told!! #eternitywithellis #thelavishexperience

Pricing!!

I struggled badly with pricing early on...giving away the very thing I poured my all into. Design was my passion that birthed into my purpose. It was constant battle...I was spending my money..plus all of the budget. I asked questions...received no real direction...some questions I was even ashamed to ask industry leaders. There were no workshops...I only knew this is what I loved to do!!

Late evening after an event, I was so burned out because I had no staff...could not afford it! I would pack my car and head back home. I knew giving up was never an option. I started to map out a plan that gave me the essentials I needed to keep me afloat and profitable. I never wanted to be in this place again. No profit....a bunch of pictures, praises and 100s of likes. So not the move!

I see so many entering the industry with no real direction. Willing to follow anyone that they believe is of substance. So many are being lead astray. I see it in groups all the time. Before entering any industry, research the market! We all come in with many gifts but to some the business side usually comes much later. AND UNTIL IT LINES UP...ALL YOU HAVE IS AN EXPENSIVE HOBBY!!

Stay tuned...mentorship opportunities coming soon!!
