WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE?

10 months. That's how long it took this lady from starting her business to launching one of the biggest creative conferences in the country. 17 months. That's how long it took her to take her wedding planning business full-time. And now, 3 years in, she's running 3 different brands, managing a team of wedding planners, and planning her 7th conference.

I know. I feel tired, too. Her energy is palpable, though. Just you wait until you listen!

In this episode, I sat down with Kat Schmoyer, the founder of Dear Sweetheart Events and The Creative At Heart conference (and our wedding planner #funfact), to chat about her journey. We talk about the whirlwind that has been the past three years for her and how in the world she manages it all (or doesn't - the hard parts, too, of course).

I also ask Kat about how she handled things when the conference came under fire last year and received some pretty brutal public backlash. We also chat about why this past year has been so difficult for her and how she's moved through things like grief and loss and miscarriage while still trying to run these businesses.

It's 50 minutes of amazing. So, what are you waiting for? Let's dive right in.
