We do this every year so here you go!
BOOK 6 COUPLES FOR 2019
Quality over quantity. Always, always, always. We want to spend more time with fabulous couples and the way for us to provide the best service is to devote our full attention to each of them and be cautious in biting off more than we can chew.
TAKE MORE BRAND PHOTOS
It has been a while since the team has gotten together for a BBE photo shoot and I think we’re long overdue!
STYLE AND COORDINATE 1 STYLED SHOOT!
This will be our rescheduled fall shoot which based on the color scheme would be a beautiful spring wedding look!
GO TO 1 WORKSHOP/CONFERENCE!
This is the goal I am most excited for! I am going to a one-on-one with Rhiannon Bosse in February and do a lot of work on design and planning details. Rhi’s weddings are breathtaking, unique, and she has definitely perfected a brand and signature style that is romantic, modern, and timeless and I can’t wait to spend time in Grand Rapids with her!
My friend Sarah from Intrigue Designs is also doing a floral tour of the US and is coming to Lincoln this summer so I will also be attending her workshop! She creates beautiful, luxurious floral designs and her work is fabulous.
EVOLVE OUR BRAND AND PERFECT OUR SIGNATURE STYLE!
Spending some time honing our craft in all aspects – planning, design, and florals – will really elevate our brand and help us serve our clients so much better! I also would want to create BBE branded cards so we can have thank you cards and welcome cards ready to go! It’s the little things that count.
SOLIDIFY OUR SYSTEMS AND LOOK INTO AUTOMATION
One of the things I’ve been thinking about is creating a broad monthly to-do template which you may find surprising that we’ve never done before! In the past, we’ve given our couples new to-dos as old ones get completed but I think it would add to their peace of mind to see our rough outline during the beginning stages of planning.
REFRESH OUR COPY
We like to update our website with blog posts, of course but we want to go over the main pages of the site and do a few tweaks. Plus our other documents such as our pricing and services guide may need a little rearranging and tweaks as well.
STRENGTHEN THE PRESENCE OF #COMMUNITYOVERCOMPETITION IN OMAHA BY HAVING 20 ATTENDEES IN A TT MEETING!
TuesdaysTogether has had a lull for the last few months which is hard because it’s one of those things where lots of people will attract a lot of people. So getting momentum is a struggle but we fully believe in the idea of community over competition and we will continue to keep hosting it!
BLOG CONSISTENTLY AND INCREASE THE QUALITY OF OUR POSTS!
The blog didn’t end up being as consistent as I was hoping in 2017 BUT I already wrote down some preliminary ideas for 2018 and am up to 50 posts so next year should be good to go! Crossing our fingers for 1 post a week! Last week, I tried to list all of my BBE goals for the year and it was surprising that a lot of the stuff that came to mind was just different blog posts. A lot of my goals for 2018 are writing and reflection related in general so I’m hoping that by trying to go from minimal writing to #allthewriting that I won’t get overwhelmed and stop. We’ll see how that goes.
DO A MONTHLY REVIEW OF RECEIPTS AND TRACKING MILES
This is pretty self-explanatory and during/after tax time, I get really good at doing this for a while but then slowly get worse again.
