Sage Wedding Pros – The Simple Plan


I had the good fortune to both attend AND film the Sage Wedding Pros The Simple Plan Workshop held in Los Angeles earlier this summer. It’s not often that I’m both behind and in front of the camera (:34) but I was determined to absorb as much information as I could while I was actually working too.

Founded by Michelle Loretta and Kelly Simants, Sage Weddings Pros helps small wedding industry business owners in a two-day business planning workshop called The Simple Plan. The Simple Plan is truly a hands-on study with extensive workshops throughout the U.S. Included in their workshops are workbooks that require serious application towards a mission statement and goal setting, financial management, staffing, promotional strategy, sales and networking.

Their more extensive one-on-one The Exclusive Plan is ideal for a more personal partnership that helps to lay the foundation for the next stage of business through six 90 minute phone calls.

I know firsthand how healthy it is to stop and take a good look at the strengths and weaknesses I have as a small business owner here at Bella Films. I constantly try to find ways to streamline my goals by improving my organizational and marketing skills while enhancing service to my clients and delivering beautiful wedding films. For example, among many changes in the last few years, I have streamlined Bella Films by developing a brand new website along with a new logo that better reflects the direction we are heading. Social networking such as Pinterest are also viable and fun ways to enhance our exposure online. Check out our Pinterest Bella Films board!

If you are a bride or potential client, please know that as an industry on a whole, many of the small business that you will encounter are often trying to find ways to improve our services to you! If you are in the wedding business and ready to stop to take a serious look at where you have been and where you want to go, I highly suggest attending The Simple Plan at a workshop near you!
