2016 in review

"You can't get there by bus, only by hardwork and risk and by not quite knowing what you're doing. What you'll discover will be wonderful. What you'll discover will be yourself." -Alan Alda

What a spectacular quote to come back to throughout a year that I anticipate to be full of growth, courage, Inspiration, friendship and love. 

When I sat down to goal plan for 2017, I first wanted to first reflect on 2016 and the things I am proud of.

I am proud of myself for realizing and sticking to my worth. As an entrepanuer, it is often easy to get wrapped up in revenue or the number of clients served. 

I am happy to have met some amazing entrepaneurs who lift me up and believe in me. 

I planned 2 Destination Weddings this year and have already booked one for 2017, Yay! Traveling is something I want to continue to do in both business and personal life. 

I am proud of myself for finally accepting that I can't do it all on my own. Having hired assistants for day-of has truly enabled me to better serve my clients and keep my mental health in check! I am but one person. Thank you ladies! 

Overall, 2016 was an incredible year of growth for Like the Dazzling Weddings (now known as Like the Dazzling L.L.C) and for myself personally as an Entrepreneur. As I reflect back on the year, I feel joy for what was accomplished and also excitement in the things that I learned and the knowledge and improvements I can take with me for 2017 and beyond! 

2017 is shaping up to be a busy and beautiful year. I am SO excited about my 2017 clients and weddings at beautiful venues such as the Trolley Barn here in Atlanta, The beautiful Historic Rice Mill in Charleston, SC, The Historic Dekalb Courthouse and more! I will be participating in another bridal show in March which are always so fun and have some lofty personal and business goals set. 

2016 will always be a highlight year as it was after all, my first full year in business here in Atlanta, I married my high school sweetheart and best friend, my sister and her husband announced they're going to be parents, we successfully orchestrated the largest 5K for the Veteran Jam.... and the list goes on!! Here's to new opportunities, goals and a year filled with growth, love and friendship! Cheers y'all!
