Well 2020, we are starting out with some great change over at Olive + Gene. I am Jessica Sloane’s newest associate wedding planner!! Jessica has been one of the few accounts I’ve followed on IG from the start and now getting to be part of her team… so ready for this! Here I will share a little more about Jessica and what this means for me at Olive and Gene. I will still be designing flowers, so not much change over there. I will not be doing any more planning under Olive + Gene. All my planning will be under Jessica’s business and that’s basically what an associate planner means. It’s a job position with the planners company usually taking on the smaller events and helping with various other tasks as well. One thing I’ve learned throughout my business journey (and it’s been a struggle) is that I can’t do it all. I can’t be everything to everyone. Trying to do everything all myself, all alone, has lead to some unhealthy habits that I no longer want to carry. This opportunity with Jessica’s business is the first step into a new decade that I needed to take. I hope you all continue to join me on this new path as I will be sharing more over on IG and here as well!
