As the wedding + event industry begins to reopen following the easing of COVID restrictions in many places, it’s presenting vendors with a lot of challenges in their businesses. Most people, however, are keeping quiet about it. Here’s why I think speaking up will do wonders for your business.
I had written and re-written my website copy a thousand times and it still didn’t feel right. Tahnée jumped in with her strategic eye and wordsmithing capabilities, offering me an immense amount of clarity and reassurance and completely elevating my website experience. She is an incredible coach and visionary!
When you sit down to consider increasing your pricing, do you find yourself asking “What’s the most I think people would pay for this?” If you do, that’s VERY normal, but that doesn’t mean it’s the right way.
