In four years I went from budget florist to luxe designer. I went from clients with an average floral budget of $1,000 to an average of $10,000. There was no class or mentor that I could reach out to, to help me understand how to run a successful wedding and event design business… so I made all the mistakes, learned from them, and implemented systems along the way. I now have the privilege of speaking around the globe, teaching other designers at conferences and in my home studio, and working with my ideal client regularly and YOU CAN TOO!
I developed this Mastermind out of my frustration of having to choose between a coaching program or a hands-on workshop, because Lord knows most of us can’t afford both. I combined the power of a workshop with the personalization of 1-on-1 coaching to create an experience that is truly the best of both worlds. And I did it all so that you could learn from my mistakes instead of making them yourself, increase your average sales, and learn to work with your ideal client!
The Mastermind by CeCe is a 5 week course for florists looking to learn new design techniques, improve their business processes, and improve their branding|marketing|social media presence to allow them to up-level their portfolio and client base.
In my Mastermind, I’m going to help you achieve the ability to work with the client you want on the type of work you love to do while learning how to make more than enough money to support your family.
Have you ever thought to yourself…
“I’ll never find the client willing to pay me what I’m worth. I work long hours everyday just to keep my head above water. Will I ever make any money? Will I ever find the clients that will let me do the type of designs I love rather than all the same old designs I hate?”
Then this Mastermind is for you!
I’m going to show you how to identify your ideal client and market yourself to find them. If you want to create the designs of your dreams, then you have to attract the clients that have those dreams too (and can actually afford them).
