Chapter Two: Inspiration

Inspiration leads to Investment which leads to profits and/or growth
Did you ever think of it that way? Pretty simple huh? It's not always just a new client that brings revenue, sometimes its an outside factor that got you thinking. A new idea perhaps. A new or improved way to do something. Sometimes just a visual gets the gears spinning in your head. Sometimes its a great story. This chapter will be about finding the inspiration that will unlock potential investments for you. This chapter I am so excited comes with a big fat surprise at the end. Don't ask, I'm not giving up the goods. You have to attend!
Register here...just a few days and a few seats left.

I need help: Do you know your business?

What I am most excited about WeWed IV is that its going to be completely and totally interactive.  Everyone who attends will be involved.  Why?  Because nobody knows the wedding industry like we do - the working professionals.
Chapter One: Be Reminded

This first chapter will be all about what we know about our businesses and what we may need to be reminded of.  We got to where we are now because we were doing something right in the beginning.  Have you forgotten what that was? This chapter will also  be about reminding ourselves of what it is like for our clients when they meet and work with us.  Prepare for a wake up call.

And this is where I ask for help.  I need one person attending from each "wedding category" to be a part of a panel.  I promise that you won't be asked to divulge any secrets.  But feel free to share them.  Everyone likes a good secret.  To be eligible, you must have 3 years or 36 weddings experience.  To become part of the panel, please email me: Kelly{at} or DM me on twitter: @WeddingTidbits.
Panelists will be invited to a special breakfast and will be highlighted on this blog.

I'd like the panel to consist of the following: Planner, Videographer, Florist, Photographer, Venue Coordinator, Baker, Officiant, DJ/Musician (or entertainment broker), Wedding Media/PR specialist, Stationery designer/provider, Hair/Makeup stylist, Bridal salon stylist, Specialty rental representative, transportation representatives...get the gist (it's everyone)?

Spread the cheer and see your ROI

ROI= Return on investment.  Most of the time you're talking about a financial or time investment.  Wouldn't it be great if we recognized what the ROI on being nice was?
So, today I'm going to give you the opportunity to spread the cheer and track your ROI on it. For today ONLY you can reserve your seat and gift another industry professional a seat for just $25.  Both seats must be reserved today in one order.  When you register, you will receive an email with a special promo code to enter for one on the final payments that will zero it out!
Imagine the cheer you'll be bringing.  Joy like this...
I think you'll find that this investment will go much farther than you can imagine! Oh and yes, you can bet I'll be calling you out for being nice! Reserve your 2 seats here: Nice Click

There will be surprises

I'm not going to spill the beans, but let me just say this.  We have been in touch with some pretty awesome businesses and we're ecstatic about what the response has been.  Attendees should be prepared to carry out more than they carried in. Swag, is an understatement. Oh yes, for WeWed IV, I mean business.

Reminder, there are only 10 early bird reservations remaining, the regular priced seats go on sale 12/9 or when the early birds sell out- whichever is sooner. Click here to reserve your early bird seat with a $25 deposit.
WeWed ... the first time!

If you have a business or product you would like to promote to the high caliber professionals who attend the WeWed workshops, please email me: Kelly{at}
Speakers interested in being a part of our events are encouraged to email me as well --> REACH OUT!

Relax and Refresh at WeWed The Resort at Marina Village

One thing I love about The Resort at Marina Village is that it really is an atmosphere where you can relax.  All the rooms either have a natural preserve view or a view of the bay and Gulf of Mexico. The rooms are exquisite- particularly the 2 and 3 bedroom units which have full kitchens and screened in balconies.
The Speakers Supper at WeWed III
You can enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner or cocktails outside at the Nauti Mermaid or inside at Marker 92. For sure try some of their fresh sushi and one of their gourmet pizzas or the Shaken Cobb salad.  My favorite dinner might be the Gumbo, or maybe its the filet.

Oh, and yes, my favorite part.  There is an off the charts spa.  Manicures, Pedicures, Massages, Facials...

I highly recommend coming on Saturday or Sunday and taking advantage of the special rates for WeWed attendees.  Even if you're locals- it's a great getaway.

Koozie for me, Koozie for you!

So yes, it is hot. And I just couldn't bare the thought of any of the outstanding WeWed Summer 2010 attendees drinking warm, um, "Diet Coke" (or whatever you may choose to slip into them). So we ordered you all these Koozies from Kustom Koozies!
