In today’s episode of She Creates Business, a Podcast for Wedding Pros host Kinsey Roberts sits down with the dynamic Amelia Holder, a seasoned entrepreneur and the visionary behind Emerson Fields, a premier wedding venue in Missouri.

Celebrating eight years of business success, Amelia shares eight invaluable lessons she's garnered along her journey—four pivotal insights that propelled her venue to become a sought-after destination and four misconceptions that, surprisingly, had little impact on her entrepreneurial path.

Four Misconceptions That Didn't Impact Success

Perfection Is Not Required:
Launching with everything perfectly in place is not necessary. Flexibility and adaptability are key.

A Business Degree Isn't Essential:
Practical experience and a strong vision can outweigh formal education in entrepreneurship.

Overcoming the Fear of Failure:
Success involves pushing past fear and skepticism, including your own and others'.

Public Perception and Changes:

The fear that everyone is watching and judging your every move is unfounded. Flexibility in business decisions is crucial.


Four Key Insights that DID Impact Success

Building a Strong Network:
Cultivating relationships with vendors, clients, and the community is invaluable for growth and support.

Embracing 'Scary Asks':
Pushing beyond comfort zones, especially in pricing and collaborations, is essential for business development.

The Importance of Outsourcing:
Delegating tasks outside one's expertise or preference can significantly propel business growth.

Trusting Your Gut:
Personal intuition and understanding of your client base are irreplaceable guides in making business decisions.

This episode is a goldmine of wisdom for anyone navigating the complexities of the wedding industry.

Amelia's journey from capturing memories behind the lens to creating them at Emerson Fields is a compelling narrative of transformation, growth, and the enduring significance of creating a legacy by doing the things that really matter.
