Does this sound familiar?

You want to book weddings, create beautiful bridal looks, and make money.

You’ll get a wedding here and there, but nothing feels consistent. You wish booking weddings was easier.

It would be less stressful to simply do hair or makeup without communicating back and forth with the client. You wish someone else would handle contracts and payments.

Running your side business takes up so much of your time. Not to mention websites, social media, government regulations, and so many other details. You wish someone else would handle the business side of things.

What if you could have an amazing experience to demonstrate your artistry, even if it was your side-hustle?

They were so warm and understanding. They embraced me like family. They helped me navigate losing a job and made me feel really supported. What used to be a side hustle stepped up at the exact moment that I needed it to.
