Qualifying Clients & Crazies

RECAP: Qualifying real clients vs crazies. When working with the 1%, some of the numbers and budgets we hear sound unreal, and yet they are absolutely legitimate. How do you qualify the real clients and separate out the crazies? This week I received 4 leads: two have very attractive 6 figure budgets, one was not a fit, and one came in with a 7 figure budget. One 6 figure client signed. One has a conference call. One went away, and the alleged 7 figure client took me and a local, well respected casino property on a ride… So how do you qualify a real client vs a crazy? How do you manage the business you have while you go after the business you want? When working with budgets that seem unreal, how do you qualify a client and segment out the crazies?

An Interview with Andy Kushner: Best Practices of Icons

Andy Kushner is the Tim Ferris of the wedding industry. Through his podcast, The Wedding Biz, Andy interviews the most prolific thought leaders in the wedding industry, providing education and inspiration to the next generation.

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT with My Partner, Tony Fisher

BIG ANNOUNCEMENTS on the podcast today! As you know, last month my husband Tony Fisher rejoined Andrea Eppolito Events full time. Tony is my partner in business and in life, and this has been a dream of mine. He is NOT a wedding planner or an event designer. Instead, Tony is taking over the business side of things, growing the brand, and developing the other areas of the industry we work in. And with that, we have three BIG announcements and are super excited to introduce you to.... The Wedding Editorialist, our sister company which produces magazines dedicated to one couple or company at a time. Check it out at www.weddingeditorialist.com We have a book coming out this fall! This has been a labor of love and a dream of mine for years, and knowing that in just a few months I will be able to pick up an actual book and share my work with the world is extraordinarily exciting. This is a love letter to LAs Vegas and to the industry which has given me so much. We are launching an educati...

Sean Low & The Business of Being Creative

Hello, hello my friends! Today I have the pleasure of introducing you to Sean Low, the founder of the BBC Collective. The BBC is a think tank that allows creative business owners to come together and discuss the status of our industry, the problems that we face, and the opportunity to simply do better business and better art. I adore Sean. He is cerebral, he is in your face, he is brilliant, and he is utterly unapologetic in being who he is. Sean moderates our group every week, and he has been instrumental in helping me put my business in perspective so that I can do what I love to do; which is make the world a more beautiful place.

Sean Low & The Business of Being Creative

I Hate It Less

As a designer, I sometimes struggle with the production part of watching what I see in my head come to life. There is this risk associated with creating something very specific for a couple. Watching my partners actually bring forth the image can be scary, and when all of the pieces are scattered there can be a moment of "Oh my God, what have I done? I hate it!!!" As it comes together, I find that I hate it less. Then, I hate it much less, and less, and less...Until I love it. How can I avoid this anxiety? Should I? At what point does the gap between my design and the reality keep me sharp and on my toes, and at what point does it hinder me? To watch a quick BTS video of an actual demo, and to hear my client talk about how important it is for her to understand the design, watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oxFXe4YXKFE And to learn more about The BBC Collective and the think tank that helps me shape my thoughts, visit https://thebbccollective.com. --- Support this podcast: h...

Responsibility: How it Impacts Contracts, Client Communications, and Vendor Relationships

Responsibility has been on my mind a lot lately. How does responsibility translate into contracts? Do we use them to CYA or to tell a story? What is our actual responsibility to our clients vs the imaginary and legal ones we impose on ourselves? When it comes to vendors, what do we take responsibility for? How can we be responsible for vendors that we don't select? Is there a difference between fault and responsibility? Does it matter?

Season 2 Episode 4: A Thank You Note About What Really Matters

This week I received a thank you note that was so moving, because the couple truly understood what mattered. We produced this wedding in less than 5 months by making very important and intentional decisions that were meant to tell a story. In the end, the couple's appreciation went far beyond, "It was so beautiful" and straight to the heart of why I do what I do, which is to communicate, to add beauty, and to celebrate a life well lived. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/andrea-eppolito/support

Season 2 Episode 3: Event Questionnaire: Information, Respect, and Responsibility

What is our responsibility to one another as professionals, in terms of information? And what is the most respectful way to use the information we obtain? I recently planned an ultra-luxe wedding, and decided to ask all of the partners involved to participate in a pre- and post- wedding evaluation of themselves and each other. While I have yet to received feedback from the teams we worked with, I did my own Q&A and the results were utterly enlightening. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/andrea-eppolito/support
