You Don’t Have To Be Good With Numbers To Be A Success — The Profit GoddessI recently sat down with Eddie Babbage, host of the Wedding Industry Insider podcast and and CEO of Timeline Genius LLC, for an interview on wedding planning, running a small business, and building success. Check out the March 21, 2017 interview here and learn how you can make your creative small business more profitable. Hint: it isn’t all about meeting revenue goals!

Our discussion breaks down the system I created to make my own business profitable, featured in my book But Are You Making Any Money? I’ve always approached things through a creative lens because I’m not naturally a numbers kind of person, but after early struggles and failures, I realized I’d have to come up with a way to approach managing my wedding and events business so that I not only created visually stunning events, but actually made money doing them!

From determining the “real” cost of goods sold, including“forget me nots” for things such as drive times to and from a meeting, shipping fees, insurance, or simply confirming things like making sure the linens get back to the linen company after an event, administrative tasks that are part of running a business are seldom included in people’s pricing model—but absolutely should be if you want success!

This podcast takes a look at the four main buckets of small businesses and offers simple solutions where event planning business owners can save money, be more efficient, free up time, and be more profitable! Timeline Genius software, designed specifically for event planning business timeline creation, is just one way business owners can be more successful.
