simply xo events is a wedding planning business FOR
When we aren’t meeting our newest friends, we are navigating the waters of being a small business owner. Let me tell ya; there are more moving parts and pieces than I could have ever imagined. From figuring out taxes (looking at you TurboTax), to watching webinars about the software we use, to stepping up our social media game, there is so much more to running a business. Every second is worth it though. Hands down.
It truly is not about the wedding, it is about the marriage. Forget about the glitter and glam, the table runners, the floral, the center pieces. Look past all of that and realize after the night of your wedding, it was just a thing. The “thing” you get forever is your husband and that marriage…and that people, is more important.
I ended up in Texas when I committed to UT Austin to pursue my Master’s degree in Social Work. Wait. What? Social Work? Okay so real talk for a second. Yes I have a Master’s degree and no I am not using it. I know that probably seems ridiculous. It’s okay if you are laughing at me right now. I spent a good amount of time doing the same. Long story short, it took me getting my Master’s to realize that my real passion in life wasn’t social work and I felt it on my heart to pursue something else.
