I've tried it all! I have made contact forms, websites, templates, and planning documents only to toss them all in the trash and start over again and again!  Running a successful event planning business or any event business is a task! Early on in my career, I had struggles and I had questions...oh boy, did I have questions! I would read blog after blog only to feel defeated or more confused because I wasn't seeing change. I wanted a real person I could talk to and show my real, everyday workflow. I needed a deep dive into my business. That is what landed me in a mentorship program. Y'all I was mentored by David Tutera! Yes, the one and only, DAVID TUTERA!!!!

How I was running my business (before being coached) wasn't producing a profit and that was a BIG problem! 

After ten years in the industry, I want to share with you what works and what DOES NOT work! Together we will evaluate your business struggles, create a workflow that is not taking over your entire life (you run your business the business does not run you!). We will explore how to  create a business that is profitable, learn how to find your ideal client and
how to plan successful events. How you communicate with both potential and current clients, staying organized in an ever-changing world impacts the success of your business. One of the best questions you can ever ask yourself, as a business owner, is this: 


Our coaching program is set-up for event planners at every stage of their career. Whether you need a reset or you are in the beginning stages of your business, I want to be there with you! 


Are you booking clients but do you feel like you could use a set of professional eyes to look at our workflows, timeline creation, or how you are running an event? Are you not sure how to pay yourself and ensure your business is making a PROFIT?

"My favorite part of the internship was the She Said Yes projects! Karie was very flexible with our schedules, which I greatly appreciated. I loved when we met for our one-on-one because it helped me take a step back and really evaluate the projects and class material and get answers to the questions and concerns I had. I loved how she started out with branding and the steps within the curriculum. Karie showed how to build networks within the wedding industry and with clients and how to maintain great relationships within the community."    Shannon

WHERE IS SHE NOW: Shannon was hired by a local high-end venue as a Venue Coordinator and thriving! I have had the pleasure of working with her for some of our own weddings and I'm so proud of what she is accomplishing!

"I don't have enough words to describe how thankful I am for Karie and the She Said Yes Program! Not only did the class provide valuable materials and resources to become a wedding planner, I also made amazing friends and great connections with others in the industry. Karie was a fantastic instructor, even when new challenges came our way with shutdowns and restrictions. She gave me the strength and confidence to open my own business, and I couldn't have done it if not for She Said Yes Weddings.  I would highly recommend this program to anyone wanting to learn more the wedding industry."   MacKenna

WHERE IS SHE NOW: MacKenna has jumped right in and is working at a local event catering company running the entire back of the house during events. She is doing so well!
