September 2016 Coordinators Meeting: An Afternoon with Regina and Krista of Crosby & Jon and Archive Rentals
Simply Sweet Weddings and Events always puts together amazing events and this month’s meeting was no exception. Our Coordinators were treated to a charming luncheon hosted at the quaint Five Crowns Restaurant & Steakhouse of Corona Del Mar. Throughout the afternoon, guests couldn’t stop commenting on how stunning the ceremony location was put together. Who doesn’t love lounge seating nestled into the traditional seating? It was such a well-designed touch of romance thanks to Classic Party Rentals. Bella Blooms filled the room with elegant pops of white, leaving our eyes to wander in all directions. Meanwhile, we visited old and new friends before sitting down to enjoy our speakers of the afternoon.
Running your own business is not an easy task. Creative blocks prove to be a problem, such as not knowing if a paycheck will be coming in this month. Regina and Krista from Crosby and Jon Design and Archive Rentals inspired us to believe in ourselves and our creativity. Their knowledge and helpful tips brought inspiration to us all with the simple reminder that saying “You’ve got this” helps to power through and grow our businesses. Sometimes if the task seems difficult, you might just be doing things right. Make sure to delegate and hire out to get the entire job done and remember that we can’t do everything ourselves. Choosing jobs that bring value to your company helps to grow the big picture and you always want to be sure to get recognized for your work. In conclusion, we can’t be afraid to raise our prices; we are worth every penny!
After the inspiring lecture it was time to enjoy the luncheon. The delightful Five Crowns Restaurant & Steakhouse offered each guest a choice of prime rib, halibut or vegetarian entrée which was a real treat. Each plate looked as wonderful as it tasted. We ended the afternoon with a full plate of desserts provided by Mixed Bakery. Everyone tried their best to taste every scrumptious bite before heading back to the office for the day where they were left wishing for more!
