  • Makes your wedding business stand out from the competition.

  • Creates a category of one for your business so that you beat the competition FOREVER.
If it’s so good, Stephanie, why ... [read more]

11 Questions That Can Change Your Life

February 17, 2017 by Stephanie and Jeff Padovani
I just got slapped in the face today. Not literally. I mean the wake-up-and-face-reality-Steph type of slap. I’ve been working, dreaming and scheming very hard about creating something unbelievably awesome with our business, but I’ve been going about it all WRONG. I have a few trusted advisors (mastermind members, coaches, mentors) who I turn to for help, guidance and perspective. I’ve been asking them all kinds of questions about what I should do. The pro...

3 Tips For Dealing With Ungrateful Couples Who Don’t Appreciate You

February 9, 2017 by Stephanie and Jeff Padovani
It sucks to be left out. Last week a wedding professional vented in our Facebook group about how she threw herself into delivering for a client whose wedding was published.

I love going above and beyond with my one-on-one coaching clients. Whet... [read more]

Featured Wedding Superhero: Ron Gallagher, Celebrant

February 2, 2017 by Stephanie and Jeff Padovani
Ron Gallagher is an Australian celebrant (aka officiant) and former magician at Your Celebrant. His tagline: “I do not just talk about Magical Moments – I create them.” I first met Ron at the Wedding MBA in 2014 where he and his business partner, Geoff, entertained us with their antics. Since then, Ron has proven himself a formidable presence in our Wedding Experts Facebook group, known for his detailed feedback and no BS approach. His tagline could just as easily be, “Don’t ask what I think unless you’re ready to hear it.” :) Ron upholds extremely high standards for himself and the wedding industr... [read more]

3 Client Communications Lessons From a Dog Trainer

January 19, 2017 by Stephanie and Jeff Padovani
The other day Jeff decided to teach our dogs to drag their doggie beds from my office to the living room on command. This is a regular nightly activity, and Jeff was tired of doing the moving. “Chili, get your bed,” he said, pointing to her dog bed. She wiggled with excitement and looked around the room. It was obvious she was enjoying the attention without a clue about what he was asking. “Chili, get the bed!” Jeff repeated again, louder this time. He repeated it ag... [read more]

January 10, 2017 by Stephanie and Jeff Padovani
Even though I was super quiet as a kid, I’ve always been a communicator. I was as happy having a conversation with the “grown ups” as I was playing hide and seek with the kids outside. Sometimes my need to communicate got me in trouble. There was the time I accidentally revealed my brother’s Christmas gift because I forgot it was supposed to be a surprise. Oops! When I was twelve years old, a younger kid asked me a question about “how babies... [read more]

How to Transform Your Wedding Business In 5 Minutes

December 22, 2016 by Stephanie and Jeff Padovani

Transform Your Wedding Business

5 minutes can transform everything in your life. Does this sound like self-help crap? Let me convince you. When I started working with Ishbel, a fabulous yoga and Pilates therapist, my biggest physical challenge was the tension in my low back.
