Serious Bidness!

It’s official! As of April 1st , 2015, I am a business! That’s the day I received my business license.
I don’t want to reveal too much before I am officially up and running but I am a wedding officiant/ singer-for-hire. Thanks to some advice from Luvvie Ajayi gained from my frequent visits to her Awesomely Techie  blog, i now own a few shiny, new URLs that are still in their original packaging. I am also gaining the knowledge and tools to create an effective website, advertise utilizing social media and what apps will help me be efficient and organized in the running of my business.
That’s the news for now!

It Begins…

Earlier this year, I became an ordained minister. It is a non-denominational affiliation that I acquired mainly to be able to perform weddings but I can also preside over funerals/ burials or baptisms.
I received my credentials and have basically been sitting on them. I’ve had a lot going on personally and am now getting to the point where I have the time to work on my business plan and my business. My business will be a sole proprietorship where I will be a wedding officiant as well as offering services as a wedding singer.
This is where I will begin storing my ceremony ideas. When I find readings and blurbs that speak to me, I write them down. Of course, there will be copies backed up on my laptop but I have always been a fan of pen to paper.
I am also working on website ideas and other marketing opportunities. Since it is just me, I don’t want to expand too quickly but I definitely see myself expanding and having a partner or maybe employees. There is a lot to consider and I am definitely just in the planning stages right now but I am SUPER excited.
