This Week’s Sponsor: How We Recover: Strategies for Longevity and Sustainability
Wedding planners! This week and next week are our launch weeks for my online course Wedding Management 101. It’s back, baby! I hope you’ll take time out of your schedule to join me for a webinar this week or next. I am presenting a new masterclass called, How We Recover: Strategies for Longevity and Sustainability.
Have we ever faced a more challenging time in the wedding industry? Unprecedented and pivot became our words of the year whether we like them or not. And all the while, we just kept postponing weddings and deferring payments. How can you make sure your business is poised to recover in 2021?
Join me, and we will work on it together. We’ve got webinar dates November 18, 20, 23 and 24, and I’d love to see you there. Just go to reneedalo.com/masterclass to register.
Thanks for Listening
