As an industry in 2020, we had
some pretty major legal issues. With events being delayed, we all
had to look back at our contracts and wonder:
we able to keep all of the deposits?
other money are we entitled to?
we charge more for postponing the weddings?
do we protect ourselves from this in the future?
It was chaos, and we don’t want it to happen again. Girija Patel
tells us how to tighten up.
This episode is brought to you by The Planner's Vault
, my online membership site for
wedding planners who are hungry to grow, ready to hustle, and
actively seeking community and education. In the vault, there are
guest experts on many topics relevant to growing and cultivating a
successful event planning business with new content added
consistently, plus all of my templates that I have built out over
the years, like How to Get on Preferred Vendor Lists, The Client
Experience, and more. The mission with the vault is to elevate the
industry (along with some amazing experts and fellow entrepreneurs)
and I want it to be affordable so it's possible to stay invested in
the community and yourself for the long haul.
The doors are currently closed for The Vault, but join the
wait list now so you can be the first to know when
the doors re-open.
