Become a Top Wedding Planner – 7 Millionaire Traits That Will Help You Succeed


As a new wedding planner, you can learn to be successful by studying the habits of self-taught multimillionaires. I have always been fascinated by stories about how people get rich and successful and I have found that many of them share similar traits.

Here are 7 traits that millionaires share with tips on how to adopt them for a successful wedding planning business:

1] They set goals – Millionaires know what they want to achieve and have a burning desire to succeed.

Take the time to set and write down the goals you have for your wedding planning business. Make them detailed and indicate why you want to reach them. It is easier to reach goals when you have a reason to reach them and a passion for what you do.

2] They act on their objectives – Millionaires know nothing is happening until they make plans and take action.

Goals are often forgotten right after being written. You need to keep them in front of you, create a plan and break the plan down into action items that can be done monthly, weekly and daily. Block time on your calendar for networking, blogging, meeting new suppliers to add to your team, attending meetings of the Wedding Planners Association, talking to potential customers and learning more about the wedding planning and management of a business.

3] They go with their strength – Millionaires only do what they do best and don't waste time with their weaknesses.

Do not waste your time and energy trying to strengthen your weaknesses, but rather take advantage of your strengths. Hire people who can do things you don't do well. For example, if you are good at working with customers and negotiating with suppliers but not good at doing administrative work, hire someone to help you do it. You are free to spend more time with more customers.

4] They believe in their vision – Many millionaires grew up poor or barely earned the minimum wage, but they had visions of a better life and they thought they could make their dreams come true.

Unless you believe that your dream of becoming a high-end wedding planner is possible and you have a passion for the job, you will not be motivated to move forward in good and bad times.

5] They think outside the box – Millionaires don't just follow the peloton, they succeed by doing things a little differently from the others.

New wedding planners often try to get clients who can afford high-end and sophisticated weddings because they think they will bring in the most money. But there are many niches to explore. For example, planning less elaborate, mid-priced weddings can be lucrative for you. You will get less money per marriage, but there are more brides who have this type of budget. You could get more clients and bring in as much money at the end of the year as you would for a few high-end weddings.

6] they never stop learning – Millionaires continually study and acquire new knowledge to succeed.

Learn as much as you can about all the details of a wedding. Take classes on topics such as floral design, cake decorating and photography in order to have more knowledge and skills to offer your brides. Study business and marketing and continue to find new ways to run a healthy and successful business.

7] They are ready to do things that others will not do – Millionaires do what it takes to succeed.

To be successful, you may have to work long hours, take big risks, and do something that initially makes you uncomfortable, but ultimately helps you stand out. For example, you may not be comfortable in a room full of strangers, but you know you need to network to meet suppliers and potential customers, so you go out anyway. You will then be ahead of the wedding planners who are sitting at home hoping the phone will ring.
