words of wisdom week 2: a charming occasion

14 May 2013
Hi friends, my name is Joelle and I'm here from Something Charming. Ashley asked me to share some words of wisdom with all of you today, and I knew exactly what I wanted to say!

If you know my story at all, you know that I struggled for a little while with trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. About a year and a half ago, however, I made the decision to start my own wedding planning and design company, A Charming Occasion. There are a lot of extremely talented and creative people in this industry, and it took me a long time to realize that there's room for all of us! But I can't just be stagnant; it's all about who you know and networking with the people you want to work with. If I've learned anything in this past year and a half, it's that I am good enough. I just have to prove it, and once I do, I will be recognized.

If you have the passion, the talent will follow. Just do it. Don't do it half-heartedly, or it will show. You just have to be so good that they can't ignore you.
