Check out her story, and great message for all women entrepreneurs.
How do you define "success" for you?
Being happy. Wanting to go to work and genuinely loving what you do. You can make a billion dollars but if you have no fulfillment in what you’re doing, who cares what you’re bringing in. The goal is financial achievement as well as doing something that truly sets your soul on fire.
When did you know you would be an entrepreneur?
When I was about 5. Haha. I never really wanted a “normal” job. I’ll give you a funny example of my kid self. My older brother played baseball and he was hard core so that meant my parents traveled all over the place for him to play in tournaments. So as a little girl that was pretty boring. So one day, I was helping my grandparents pick tomato worms off of their tomato plants. Well, I totally loved all critters and decided to keep one as a pet. This little worm made the treck with me to one of my brothers tournaments. At the tournament I walked around and charged the other kids .25 cents to touch it and .50 to hold it. For kids who didn’t live out in the country like me, this was quite the treat! At another baseball tournament it had rained, so there were a million baby frogs hopping around. You guessed it, I gathered them all up and sold those too. I just also have loved creating and being different. I have attempted a few careers and education of more traditional callings and it’s just never my thing, no matter if I was talented in the area or not.
What great advice would you give to other women entrepreneurs?
Do your thing girl. Don’t look at Susie Q and wish for her life, that’s her life and you couldn’t do it like her if you tried. YOU HAVE YOUR LIFE. She for dang sure couldn’t do what you do if she tried. We are all blessed with different talents and gifts. Use yours. Not hers. And go out there and rock it.

What was your ambition when you started?
Hmmmm, my ambition when I started. It was to be the best in Colorado. To offer something no one really does, and in that, help people too.
How has it changed, and what is your ambition today?
Not much has changed. I still want to offer a unique approach to planning and executing weddings and events. I love our personal approach and truly being there in this beautiful season our clients are going through. I mean, not many careers can say they help start people’s forever…. we want to be sure we do our very best in that area.
If you’re always comparing your losses to someones else’s wins, you’re giving up before you ever had a chance.”
What is the best advice you ever got about running a business?
To not care or compare. It’s one thing to see success and be driven by it. But if you’re always comparing your losses to someone else’s wins, you’re giving up before you ever had a chance.
What were some of the biggest challenges you faced as a business owner so far, and how did you overcome them?
Colorado has a crazy saturated wedding market. So, being a brand new company it’s definatley been trial and error with what works in getting our name out there.
What is your "secret" to success?
It sound cliché but seriously no matter how many times something fails, you always have to keep going. You see your vision, you know the dream you’re chasing. You always put one foot in front of the other and you keep on moving.
Now, tell us a fun "secret"!
So this isn’t really a secret. But it is something that most people in my season of life don’t know….. I am a member of a world champion hip hop dance team. We were without a doubt the underdogs. From a tiny town. No one had heard of us before, up against the big dogs in dance. And none of that mattered. WE worked out butts off and didn’t care if no one knew our names going in, everyone sure as heck knew our names going out. Humble roots. Hard work. I am and always will be a cheerleader for the underdog. Entrepreneurs have to work for what they have just like we did. It doesn’t matter where you start its how you finish. Here’s our championship routine. Watch Here: Enjoy!
What is the best business or self-development book you recommend?
