Are you thinking about growing and scaling your business but you don’t know where to start?

We talk about the first steps in scaling and what you should be focusing on to build your brand’s future.

Whether you’re just getting started or you’re ready to grow, these are tips you should take action on now. Grab your coffee or your tea, and listen in!

Amelia Cooper shares how she grew and scaled her business.

Amelia is a 15-year wedding-industry veteran and owner of Amelia C & Co, a hair and makeup agency. Starting as a hair and makeup artist in 2004, she quickly adapted to the Las Vegas bridal market niche, and by 2010 had formed her agency. Her company has won numerous awards over the years, been recognized by Brides Magazine, and earned Best Of Weddings ten years in a row.

She is currently serving as President of WIPA Las Vegas, an active member of Junior League, a homeless youth advocate, and a volunteer. As a serial entrepreneur, she has tried and failed and tried again in multiple arenas with different measures of success.

When she’s not forming an LLC or volunteering, she’s vegging out with her husband of 11 years and their two rescue cats. She lives for never visiting the same place twice, Panang curry, artisan grocery stores, and the heat of summer.

Key Takeaways:

  • Humble beginnings curling hair
  • The 5-Star Experience
  • Transitioning from solo to team
  • Tips for scaling
  • Diversifying your income
  • Protecting your work
