Nothing in life is easy. We all must set goals and make things happen. It will be easier for some people because they prepare themselves for success; for others, it may never happen because they don’t appreciate their worth, and they don’t know their potential.
When I started my business, it was a new market for me. I went from a sales and marketing manager to Social event planner, floral and event designer owning my business. I started my business after buying online videos and learning from the experts. I knew the art of selling and marketing, but I didn’t know how to execute my designs ideas. Hence, I recruited the best designers to work with me on my events. At the same time, I continued educating myself to interpret and understand design concepts so I could execute them.
Six months later, I was ready to run my business with confidence and speak the same language as the professional designers. I believe in educating myself with great professionals. For me, everything happened with videos and online classes. Then I went to the school of floral design in Atlanta Georgia.
Getting that experience brought me a client I will never forget. One day my studio doors opened, two bodyguards stood inside my showroom at either side of the door. A sweet, adorable lady walked in and said, “I am here because I want you to design my 50th wedding anniversary and I want it to look and feel like a grand wedding.” At that time, I did not know who she was, so I kindly got up and greeted her. After a warm welcome, I said, “Where is your lucky gentleman?” She responded, “He is in the car waiting” (some things never change, “guys”).
I landed that contract. It was the beginning of a profitable and enjoyable career with many referrals from that social circle. If I were not prepared to conduct that consultation, I would have never made it. That is why education is number one on my agenda. When I started this business, I resolved to deliver excellency to all my clients. Being prepared has allowed me to remain in the same industry for almost three decades. I am still working with my dream customers and solving their problems. In the end, the result is happy clients. You can do likewise.
I know the present situation has us all thinking “what if?” After this pandemic is under control, though, we will have to be ready, whether working for other people or ourselves.
