MENTORING

Mentoring for wedding planners and creative business owners

“When you can’t see the wood for the trees… I can help you gain the clarity and confidence to grow a thriving business”

Have you ever sat there agonising over a decision, wishing you had a business partner to talk things through with? I can help you with my new mentoring service.

If you’re feeling stuck, need week-by-week accountability to help move your business forward, or want to branch out into new areas of your business, 1-2-1 mentoring with me is a commitment to your business growth and development.

I know how challenging setting up your business can be, and at times it’s lonely. Gone are the days of chatting with fellow colleagues about a work problem over a coffee break. Now, you have to rely on your own structure and motivation, no matter how you’re feeling when you wake up. To achieve your dream of success, it’s essential that you continue to grow, both as a business and on a personal level. But it’s so easy to get lost in the day-to-day running of things that you neglect to work ‘on’ your business, with the focus and intention that is needed to move forwards.

With 7 years’ experience as a professional London wedding planner, I can give you practical guidance and insight to help you to create a business that is not only successful, but that you also love.

“Andri is a calm presence with a no-fluff attitude, that I love and need from a business mentor. She won’t sit there and stroke your hair because you’re doing a good job, she’ll give you further strength (a.k.a kick up the arse) to move forward and push harder to get further in your business career. It’s tough work, but with her experience and positive demeanour it makes it an easier feat. She’s wonderful at making sure you’re on the right track but she also wants more for you and will help you get beyond that”

How I work with you

My approach is straight-talking, practical and supportive so that you get the most out of our sessions together. It’s all about helping you to find solutions and ideas that are right for your business and your style, not forcing you to follow a prescribed program that makes you feel bad for having an ‘off day’. I will tailor our calls to your needs, but topics that can be covered during our chats include, but are not limited to:

  • Goal setting and how it can help you grow a successful business even when you’re totally snowed under
  • Appraisal of existing strategy and brainstorming new strategies to bring in line with your brand goals
  • Brand communications across all your platforms
  • Pricing & how to package your services to attract your ideal client
  • Blogging strategy and creating editorial calendars to keep you on track
  • Styled shoots and how they can help you connect with your clients
  • Identifying and understanding your ideal client
  • Creating marketing plans and how to break it down into actionable steps
  • Understanding your motivation, your ‘why’, and establishing your unique voice as a business owner

“It was a big investment and I was scared that I invested so heavily in a mentor, but oh my god how wrong could I have been. It was one of the best investments I made.”
