How to market your company. How to position your brand to succeed. How to build your network of vendors and venues. Where to get the best rates on your decor, supplies or flowers.

What People Are Saying About Us

The Business Success Course helped me go from $0 to $23,850 in 3 months by getting four new, big clients and knowing exactly how position myself. I highly recommend this course.

I planned a few events for my family but I knew I couldn't keep doing that because I wasn't getting paid. So I took both courses and it really opened my eyes to how I should run my business! It's been so helpful it's amazing!

Sandra Charston

I hesitated joining the Fundamentals course for 3 months because I wasn't sure I had enough time with a part-time job and baby at home. Joining has been the best decision ever! I just wish I joined sooner. The material is highly recommended - you won't regret it.
