This Week’s Sponsor: Group Coaching and Masterminds with Renee Dalo
In the last six weeks, I’ve received so many emails from you guys asking if I offer a deeper dive into us working together. It’s always been my mission to listen to this community and serve as needed. And what I’m hearing from you right now is that you don’t want to waste this time. Frankly, I don’t want to either.
I spend a lot of time these days thinking about who I want to be planning for the kind of business I want to have when this is all over. The next few months in our businesses are going to be completely unfamiliar. So let’s get through them together.
On May 18, I’m launching a group coaching program for brand new wedding planners and a mastermind for seasoned wedding planners. This is coming to you at a shockingly low founders rate because I want to make this accessible for you right now, right where you are. Seriously, the price will never be this low again. And if you get in as a founding member your rate won’t ever increase. Ever. So head over to reneedalo.com/group for all the info. I hope to see you in class!
Thanks for Listening!
