Laurie, What made you decide to go down the road to creative entrepreneurship?
I believe we are all creative first of all, wedding planning allows me to work from home, evolve with every couple and use my gifts for calm, encouragement, design and organization.

What advice can you share with other creatives who are struggling in their own journey?
Become a part of the community you are working in. Make personal connections with others in your field, they are often open to a coffee or lunch appointment. I think if you frame it that you admire their business model and would they be willing to share advice. I think most people are generous with their knowledge.

Share an inspiring quote with us!
