We are so excited to have Literary Advisor, Marquie Young on this episode of Business Unveiled, where she shares her thoughts and analysis on the book Empowering Yourself. Keep reading for an overview of this episode!

*The People Game: It’s all about people; the people you know, the way others perceive you, how you learn to use the people around you to your advantage

*Reading the Environment: Know what is expected

*PIE: Performance-The Entry Ticket-10%

- Doing well is important, but working hard will only get you so far

*Image: 40%

- Think the first 20 seconds of an interview, how you look, what the interviewer sees as you walk in... matters

*Exposure: 50%

- Who knows you are there, are those people influential? Make sure you are seen, but since Performance and Image matter; make sure you are doing a good job and that you look the part (or that others think you look the part)

*The Game Board:

- Whoever is at the top makes the rules

- We live in a class system, 7 classes:

7-old money (think kennedys, rockafellers)

6-new money (famous people, athletes, movie stars)

5-SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS, professionals (lawyers/doctors)

For our purposes the 4-6 levels matter most. moving from working for someone to working for your self, to (your favorite) working for your business not "in" your business. For this delegation is key, especially for small business owners. You have to make time to get your 50% exposure by delegating tasks (even personal ones) to others. i.e. neighborhood kid to mow your grass.

4-company managers

- Your ability to learn the rules within each class matter if you are change your position. This can be learned and you must be willing to change and adapt.

*Game Skills:

- set goals

- control your emotions

- delegate - it will allow you to free time that is needed for activities that can help move you toward your goals

- Plan

*POWER:

- the ability to influence

- Position Power

- Knowledge Power

- Charismatic Power

- Power by Association

*Why Are Rules Important:

- You are immediately in the game

- You need to know the rules early and parents typically teach but mentoring is important also

- If you do not understand the rules to the game, to each class, to your organization; you will not be able to advance.

*How to Learn the Rules of Your Organization

Reading the Environment

- Observe

- Question - without being intrusive

- Interperet

- Adapt (to the rules you have learned)

*The Challenge:

- The game isn't fair, you not only have to know the rules but be willing to take the risks required to advance. If everyone could be at the top of their perspective pyramid then it would be fair but not everyone knows or learns the rules, thus, they cannot advance.

- You are in control, set the right goals, go for them and never stop growing.

  • When you’re being a person you’re not proud of, thinking thoughts that the “real you” never would entertain and feel nothing and everything all at once, you’re probably burned out - but you’re not alone.
  • Having awareness in our industry of burnout, as an indication of change within ourself and not a stamp of failure and hopelessness can help save yourself, your career, your relationships and, possibly, your life.
  • We work in the best industry in the entire world - if you don’t believe that, ask yourself “Why not?” and navigate your way back to joy, this time on your own terms. I’m cheering you on.

Claire White – Flourishing with White Ink Calligraphy

 

In this episode, Angela and Claire discuss:

  • How Claire began her Calligraphy business and how she got started in the industry.
  • How Claire balances her intellectual side and creative side with the type of work she’s doing as a lawyer and as a calligrapher.
  • What an invitation suite means and what the different options look like (i.e. outer envelopes, inner envelopes, spot calligraphy, etc.)
  • Challenges that Claire faces in the industry and her business and what she has learned from those experiences.
  • Tips, tricks, and things to know when working with a calligrapher.

Key Takeaways:

  • Calligraphy is an art. Every calligrapher’s hand is different. They may be able to do something similar, but it will never be identical to someone else’s.
  • It doesn’t have to be expensive to get gorgeous calligraphy. There are ways to save costs, but still get the glamour that you want from your wedding.
  • The first wedding anniversary is paper, you can do creative things with calligraphy as an option (i.e. having your wedding vows written out and framed).
  • Don’t get overwhelmed with social media. Pick one platform, post regularly, and it does work.

 

 

"Other than wedding calligraphy, I’m always looking for ways to continue serving my clients." — Claire White

Dec 26, 2017

In this episode of Weddings Unveiled, Angela and her lead consultant Alison discuss some entertaining stories of past interns and what they learned from them. This is going to be a funny one, so tune in and don’t miss it!

Dec 19, 2017

Join Angela and Alison as they recall a tough situation that helped them discover how to properly staff for the day of an event, process challenges with guests during setup and educate couples on the expectations of different cultures. With these tips, you’ll find it easier to manage the understanding of an event when your clients don’t share the same religious background. Tune in!

Dec 12, 2017

It is easy to let a client talk you into not bringing an assistant to their destination event. “The guest list being limited to less than 20 people” or “the resort staff will help” are just a couple of the reasons clients think the planner can do it alone. In today’s podcast, Angela and her lead consultant Alison discuss a time when they thought Angela could handle a week-long destination wedding by herself, and upon arrival wished she had someone who knew what to do by her side. Tune in to hear how you could learn from this and not make the same mistake they did!

Dec 5, 2017

New and even seasoned event professionals can get into the swing of life, and always dressing up for meetings. While Angela is usually meeting indoors or at her office, occasionally they go offsite to a private home or new venue with a client.

Having friends provide their services for weddings is never a good idea. Even if they are great friends and always follow through, it usually ends badly. They don’t know what they’re signing up for to work your wedding night, and the temptation to leave their post and join the party is too high. This leads to Angela's team picking up the slack, and doing other people’s jobs taking away from their planning responsibilities. Together with Angela's co-host Alison Burry, they will unveil the importance of keeping friends as guests, and not vendors.

Here's a secret for you: People pay planners so someone else can plan their event for them. Crazy idea, right?

The wedding and event industry is a lucrative business. As a result, new hotels, restaurants or clubs are opening up their space to host weddings and private events. This means you’ll likely have clients booking venues that you’ve never seen or worked in before. It’s a great opportunity to discover new spaces for future clients. However, it can also cause headaches for you and your time unless you follow the most important rule of using a venue for the first time. Require your team and vendors visit the venue at least once prior to the weekend or day of the event. Working in a new venue for the first time without a site visit is like hoping to fall in love on a blind date; it’s possible, but far from likely. Listen to this episode as Angela shares a story illustrating the importance of site visits.

As event planning professionals, our first instinct is to help everyone that walks through our door. However, over the years I’ve learned this simple truth: You can’t be everything to everybody.
