Let’s Go Beyond Business

It’s tough running a business, y’all! One of the most important things we have found to a successful business are the people and specifically the peers you surround yourself with.  Out of this we created, Beyond Business – a community of like-minded event + wedding business owners sharing tactical advice & strategies, leaning on each other for support and together, building more successful and fulfilling businesses. 

Honest and open conversations with other business owners – your peers – about the tough stuff in business.

Our community is built around talking openly with peers about the fears, insecurities, loneliness and challenges of running your own business.


Coffee Support Hours & Strategy Swaps

Our version of AA for the event + wedding industry. Business owners talking shop, sharing strategies and growing your network in a meaningful way.


Strategic Workshops & Conferences

With interactive sessions around key topics like money, marketing, taxes, retirement, employees and clients, to name a few, our off-line events connect you with local experts and give you the space to make progress on areas of  your business to help you grow.


Business Owners ONLY

And while we love our managers, industry leaders and employees – this group is not for you. Business owners in the wedding and event industry only. 

Let’s Meet-up!
