What do we really know about the businesses we partner with? How do we gather and share information, and is the information we have truly valid or is it a figment of our information?
I recently asked the partners on a wedding to participate in a pre and post wedding production survey, and while they have yet to turn in their responses what I learned about myself was enlightening.

All of the teams that we had engaged or incredibly supportive and understanding. Because at the end of the day, we deal in humanity. And taking care of people is what’s important.Read More

Wedding Planner Podcast.
