Perspective

October 19, 2017 by Mitch Taylor
Perspective (One Step Back) I'm a firm believer in the motto "Work Hard...Play Hard" and would also advise one more two word phrase to follow that.  "Live Hard"  To me the epitome of the phrase "Live Hard" is my good friend Sean "Big Daddy" McKee.  If you haven't met this man PLEASE do yourself a favor, reach out on Facebook and get to know the inspiration that is Big Daddy.  Big Daddy is a two time cancer survivor and a man who does more events in a week than I sometimes do in a month.  His de...

October 17, 2017 by Mitch Taylor
Entrepreneurial Truth Part 2 This is a continuation of the article from last week of Entrepreneurial Truths.  As an entrepreneur there are constant stresses, pressures, the feelings that you have.

A Tale Of Two Brides Part Two

October 12, 2017 by Mitch Taylor
This is the continuation of last week’s article discussing A Tale Of Two Brides.  Or are they?     There had been a recent debate in a group of wedding entertainers I belong to on Facebook  stating “You can’t turn a $500 bride into a $2000 bride”.  Do you believe you can transition a bride from wanting to spend only $500 to spending 4 times that amount?  I’ve proven that it can be done, not always, but yes it can be done.  You won’t do anything if you don’t take the swing.   I began think...

Entrepreneurial Truth Part 1

October 10, 2017 by Mitch Taylor
Entrepreneurial Truths   Here's the reality. As an entrepreneur there are constant stresses, pressures, the feelings that you have. It's something that I believe that all of us as entrepreneurs go through on a daily, if not certainly weekly basis. Let’s look at one of those here, and we will continue this blog post next week. Many of us struggle with sales as an entrepreneur from time to time.  Maybe your sales person isn’t making quota this week, month or year.  Maybe you yourself are slacking in this... [read more]

Have you heard of Wedding.com yet? Wedding.com is a relatively new service that connects couples to wedding pros. The first pop-up of their site suggests “A New Way To Plan Your Wedding” promising free custom quotes from local vendors in 24 hours. I’m sure that there’s many of you who have received the emails from “Katie, Wedding.com” that says, “Your Name, these brides need your services” in the read more]

Why you should pay for training part 2

October 3, 2017 by Mitch Taylor
Here's the second part of my 2 part article "Why you should pay for training".   Fast forward to June 8th, 2013. Danielle’s wedding day. Her father was there…in a wheelchair unable to muster the strength to stand for more than a few seconds at best. Taylored Weddings MC Josh Barron introduced the moment (another whole topic for a later article) and a hush fell over the room as Bill Ross wheeled out to the dance floor where his daughter was seated in a chair next to him and held his hand while they listened to the creation we had made for this moment…j...

Pull Your Head Out Of The Sand

September 28, 2017 by Mitch Taylor
Pull Your Head Out Of The Sand Lately I've been super busy in my office, traveling (business and pleasure), and keeping up with the Taylored Weddings business of planning, producing and performing wedding receptions.  What amazed me after this past week is how much of a TIME SUCK Facebook and other social media is!  I glanced at some of the normal boards on the popular social media site just today before boarding my plane and was surprised at how much time this past week I DIDN'T spend ...

Busker Business

September 26, 2017 by Mitch Taylor
Busker Business My wife and I traveled to New Orleans this past year and what an experience. New Orleans was amazing. I can't say enough things about the city, the vibe, the experience. When you go to New Orleans or you go to France or you go to many major metropolitan cities in the United States you'll see different things. Some of those things can be pretty eye opening. In New Orleans, there are many street performers there.  That brings me to this article, and how sales is like the life of a busker, or street performer as they are sometimes more commonly known as. ...

Stop Collaborate Listen

September 21, 2017 by Mitch Taylor
Stop, Collaborate and Listen! If you grew up during the late 80s early 90s you no doubt recognize the words above as the lyric from that great philospher Vanilla Ice from his hit "Ice Ice Baby".  On the surface these lyrics seem rather unpretentious...unassuming and totally lack depth...right?  While I wouldn't always be the one to take business advice from Vanilla...let's kick it one time...BOY!read more]

Mastering The Basics

September 19, 2017 by Mitch Taylor
Mastering The Basics.  Mark Ferrell talked about this on a DJA Radio podcast back in the day I believe 2006 that he spoke about that and for me this something that goes even beyond that. You need to master the basics of whatever task you are trying to master before ever trying to coach someone else on it. In the Marbecca Method workshops, Mark Ferrell taught me the basics of a welcome. The basics of an announcement. The basics of transition.  If you are reading these and are unsure of what they are, then I strongly encourage you... [read more]
