I’m Donna. Qualified coach & business strategist for creatives and wedding pros.
You’ll find me in beautiful Yorkshire with my husband Paul, 2 kids and cockapoo pup Bailey.
I’m your Yorkshire Tea obsessed, marketing loving, new biz bestie ready to help you catapult your wedding business success!
I help empower driven wedding professionals, just like you, with the strategy to attract and book clients you LOVE so you can get on doing the work you love without the overwhelm and crazy hours.
It’s time to make the income you deserve without the worry about where the next client is coming from.
How I went from corporate life to helping hundreds of others grow their businesses.
12 years ago I I felt like a corporate drone and wanted to do something that mattered and be around for my young family.
So in 2009 I finally took the plunge and left my 9-5 to grow a wedding styling business.
Fast forward 10 years of trial-and-error with over 700 weddings under my belt – I can tell you exactly what it takes to create a life and business that fuels your creative fire!
When I started out I felt my passion, drive and experience would be enough to carry me through. But boy was I wrong – let’s just say there were many lessons learned along the way.
- I struggled with the marketing and sales side of things.
- Became burnt out from doing “all the things” and working 24/7 with no systems in place.
- Didn’t have a strategy to stand out, attract and book my dream clients in an increasingly saturated market.
I felt stuck and frustrated...
I had created another job for myself (one that definitely didn’t reflect the hours I put in!) instead of gaining the income, freedom and flexibility I had dreamed of.
It wasn’t until I hit rock bottom after having my 2nd child and having to miss out on those early precious moments because I was always working (or thinking about work!) that things changed.
I put all my efforts into turning things around and ensuring I became a business owner more than a trapped employee.
Which leads me to where I am today, sharing the shortcuts and roadmap with wedding pros like you to get you to where you want to be quicker and with less pain.
I’m dedicated to helping you create the business and lifestyle that will have your friends, family and industry friends asking what your secret is!
LISTEN UP FRIEND! YOU ABSOLUTELY CAN
Create The Wedding Business You've Always Dreamed Of !
Does this sound like you?
YOU ARE A CREATIVE AND PASSIONATE SMALL BUSINESS OWNER WHO LOVES LOVE!
You started your business so you could share your passion helping couples create their perfect day with your service, to earn a great living doing the thing you love, have more freedom and escape the 9-5.
But you’re spinning all the plates, not attracting and booking enough of your dream clients and are spread way too thin trying to do it all.
Quotations, invoicing, client consults, marketing, sales and keeping on top of the dreaded inbox.
AND you have to find the time to actually provide your service.
As for generating consistent leads I’m guessing at this point your marketing strategy is more ‘throwing spaghetti at the wall to see what sticks” than attracting ideal leads consistently with a defined plan.
If you’re ready for someone, who’s already walked
your path and understands the nuances of the wedding industry, to help you fulfil the big vision you have for your business and life…. keep reading.
My mission is to help you attract and book your dream clients without the overwhelm and 60 hour weeks.
Did you know you can achieve success in your business WITHOUT…
– Relying on referrals from others (that can dry up in a second).
– Posting for hours every week on social media but feeling frustrated that your efforts don’t result in sales.
– Dropping your prices to compete with the “we loved your work but went with someone cheaper” comments.
– The frustration of trying to figure out what works to get your business booked out with clients you love and that value you.
– Working 24/7!
It's time to grow a business you love! I'm ready when you are.
