Episode 55: Talk About Practical Wellness with José Rolón
In this episode, I’m talking with José Rolón about practical wellness. As a wedding planner based in NYC and a single dad of three kids, Jose has learned how to keep his cool under pressure. We discuss how wellness impacts your ability to be at your best for your business, your family, and yourself. Jose shares wellness practices related to working from home, setting boundaries, grieving, wedding planning during COVID, and taking care of yourself through it all. Grab your coffee or a cup of calming chamomile tea, and let’s talk it out.
About José Rolón
A nuptial maestro for almost a decade, José specializes in bringing comfort to a process that’s famously filled with tough decisions and mounting stress.
After his time at the Foundry, a luxury wedding venue in NYC, José went out on his own with the goal of leveraging his storytelling and relationship building abilities to create emotional and visual experiences for his clients. He quickly made a name for himself with his chill vibe and generous command, and his planning and design aesthetic has made him one of the top rising wedding planners in NYC. His work has been celebrated with the Best of The Knot, Essence Magazine, Sophisticated Weddings Magazine, and New York Weddings.
José lives in Brooklyn Heights with his three children, and as a single dad, has learned how to keep his cool under pressure.
