Amazing News From Our Owner’s Trip To California

A Well Deserved Vacation

It’s been a long time since our owner’s Jason and Laura took a break from all of their hard work. Making sure everything is running perfectly at all times is a very daunting task for anyone. But they seem to never let it faze them and they keep it all together.

2015 is already becoming a very busy year with the second week of January being the biggest week ever for the company. In one week we acquired 28 new clients for the 2015 and 2016 wedding season. We are planning for 2015 to be our biggest year yet. It’s a steady flow of work all the way up to April and then May gets insanely busy. So in order to prepare for the road ahead it was necessary for our owners to UnPlug and take a vacation. Albeit a small vacation with them only being gone for 4 days. Jason said, “that’s about all the time we can take off really without missing what we do and taking care of business”.

Jason and Laura decided to buy plane tickets for a trip to LA as their Christmas present to each other. So they packed up and headed to the West Coast. “It’s going to be hard not to think about work and just relax, but we are policing each other to make sure we don’t get distracted from sunny California”, Jason stated. What happened on their trip was completely unexpected.

FROM JASON:

The first morning in California was the most difficult.  Without having my Macbook at hand and getting in to our online work as I do on a daily basis, I felt incomplete. But after we got out and about to see the sights, the anxiety completely slipped away. Before we left, we briefed a few of our team members and tasked them with responsibilities to ensure that the company would still run smoothly. Also, so we wouldn’t be stressed out at all during our vacation.  We absolutely love our team! Without them we wouldn’t have had as fun of a time while we were away. From transferring phone lines to monitoring all inbound emails, our crew stayed on top of everything that came in. It takes a lot to continue operations and we are glad to have such support from our crew.

I tried so much not to think about business and talk about business during our trip. However, anyone who knows me knows that this is almost impossible. I love what I do and I love continuously creating new opportunities. We had NO IDEA the opportunity that would have came about while we were all the way on the west coast…

A long time friend and associate of mine (Owner of Hollywood Universal and many other multimedia outlets in the San Diego Area, Mugsy Mahonney) had moved to the San Diego area almost a year prior. He was able to show us around the San Diego area while we were in town. It was a great time not only seeing all of the wonderful sights, but also catching up. During a great lunch at The Ale House in Pacific Beach, we started talking shop about DJing and business growth. It dawned on me and I had an AH HA moment! As much as I didn’t want to talk business, it just happens that way sometimes. Without getting in to all of the details…

BOOK THAT DJ HAS STARTED OPERATIONS ON THE WEST COAST!!!!

It will take some time to work through all of the planning and processes. But we have officially started the process of building a Book That DJ branch in San Diego, California. The process is estimated to take up to two years to be fully operational. The greatest thing about The Wedding Industry on the West Coast is that there isn’t just a ‘season’, it’s all year round. We’ve begun researching the market trends and associated data, as well as dates for Bridal Shows/Fairs in and around San Diego. With the help of several contacts within the San Diego area, what was once just a mere thought is now becoming reality. This was the business highlight from a primarily personal vacation. So we decided to not only share the journey, but share the BIG NEWS as well! We hope you all are as excited as we are.

A HUGE THANK YOU TO HOLLYWOOD UNIVERSAL! For making it possible!

In Flight Reading

As you may or may not know, our owner Jason has an extensive library of business books, self help books, and even the “For Dummies” books. He is constantly reading new books that help him grow personally and professionally. In turn it helps us all, because it allows him to be even more productive and creative. For this particular flight to California, he knew he would be on the plane for several hours. So he sought to get some new books that will not only do more of the same for us all, but also keep him busy throughout the flight. Many of his books are highly recommended for any small business owner looking to grow their business and minds. Here are the books he chose to take with him…

What Type Of Wedding Are You Imagining?

Have you imagined what type of Wedding you expect?

Most Brides (and some grooms) have thought about their wedding day for many many years, when it should be, how beautiful it will be, and how much fun it will be. One of the primary questions we ask our clients when we sit down with them is “What do you imagine for your wedding entertainment?” Most of them seem to not have even given it much thought. They simply say “We just want our guests to have fun”. DONE! That’s easy. However, we like to take it a step further and get to know our clients in order to create their wedding entertainment based on their imagination. Thus begins our follow up questions in order to get to know more about general taste and personality traits. These are just a few of the reasons our clients rave about what we do.

The entertainment factor for your wedding should be held in very high regard. We are sure you’ve heard the phrase “A DJ will make or break your wedding”. This is completely true. The quality you should expect in your wedding dj shouldn’t be something that you simply decide on (Especially Not Based On Price!). Do your research! Find out about backgrounds, experience, previous employment, etc. Your DJ should be just as professional as they are talented. Without doing your research, you may be gambling with the actual outcome of what you’ve imagined your big day to be.
