You Can Build a Successful Wedding Planning Business While Working a 9-5

Building a Wedding Planning Business While Working Full Time


So many aspiring wedding planners think they can’t build a successful wedding planning business while still working a 9-5.


I actually started my wedding planning business while still working a 9-5 and worked at that job for six years while I built my business on the side. 


I know you think clients aren’t going to take you series and no one’s going to want to work with you when you’re still  working a 9-5 AND have this “side gig” planning business.


But if that were true then EVERY planner who worked full time while building their planning business on the side would not have successful businesses today. I am proof that it can be done and done well.  


Is it going to be easy?  …No, but if you really want this to work you will do whatever it takes to make it happen.


! Confident and determined wedding planners make it happen ! 


Find me any wedding planner out there, who built their business while working a 9-5 who will say it was easy to do both!


…you can’t.  They simply don’t exist.


But, ironically, when you are determined and are willing to do whatever it takes to make your planning business work then it will!  


You may have to meet with clients on weekends or at night.  You may have to work through your lunch hour responding to emails or scheduling vendor meetings, but that’s okay.  


So let me ask you, do you really want to keep stressing about clients not taking you seriously once they find out you have a 9-5 job OR do you want to own the fact you will build a successful planning business while still working for someone else.  


And change your mindset today so when you finally go full time in your planning business you will already be set up for success.
