The Wedding Academy by Flourish and Prosper

I am excited to share this business with you today, Flourish & Prosper! Flourish & Prosper is a new unique business that offers training and development for wedding industry professionals with beautifully curated, inspirational events. As someone who has worked in the events business for years, has a new business in the works and new plans even after that, a business like this to hear advice from sounds wonderful!
If you are like me, a blogger, a full time job and one being created on the side, things can start to feel overwhelming and a little lost some days. It is sometimes hard working alone and finding encouragement to create the beautiful things that your clients are looking for. Welcome Flourish & Prosper
Created by two ladies in the industry that come from two different experiences {Louise from b.loved blog and Jessie from Jessie ThomsonWeddings } they are sharing their own experiences of running successful wedding businesses with others in the industry. Together the two of them want to encourage and inspire people that are just starting out or are already established in the wedding world. I love that they want to bring together like minded businesses and professionals  and help them grow as professionals and entrepreneurs. 
Each event will be hosted by Louise and Jessie but will also include top industry experts such as Pocketful of Dreams, Swash & Fold and Sweetpea PR, to name a few. 

The first event is The Wedding Academy,  a one-day event created for anyone wanting to set up a new wedding business, or who would like to take their existing wedding business to the next level. With expert advice on brand positioning, web creation, marketing materials, business acumen, and practical know how from established and successful business owners from within the world of weddings.

What's Included?

In addition to inspirational speakers, break out sessions, networking events, and super duper swag bags, the following topics (and so much more) will be covered:

  • Finding your personal "WHY"
