TUNE IN: APPLE PODCAST | SPOTIFY
Path to Wedding Planning with Sea & Silk, episode number 27 on the podcast. Amanda began her business after university, even though she always dreamed of becoming a planner. Her story is so relatable. She’s an intern who became a business owner. Amanda has gone through incredible business challenges. That was just the beginning of the wild journey of business and life this GirlBoss has continued to ride. However, she’s become a fine-tuned version of success she’s creating for herself and others today.
Ecstatic for this opportunity to have a candid conversation with Amanda about business highs and lows. Creating a company that aligns with what you actually want. Taking everything she’s learned and turning it into valuable teachings for herself and others. However, documenting this amazing story of perseverance, especially given the current economic status of the event industry, is near and dear to my heart.
With every new phase of entrepreneurship however, Amanda reinvented herself. However, in each new endeavour she was equipped with the experiences, knowledge, and skills that she acquired from her previous experience. What I love most is Amanda’s candid and casual response that you need to just start. Something that I continue to say all the time.
Path to Wedding Planning with Sea & Silk – Gap in the Market
Our job as entrepreneurs is essentially filling a gap in the market. However, Amanda not only dreamt of being a planner her whole life, she’s encompassed it early on. Being able to see a gap in the current market, has generated quite a stir. Her clients are obsessed. Loving every second of the design process is so key in her role. This has landed and attracted ideal clients. Being able to attract people is the name of the game when it comes to weddings.

Time and time again we see the power of connection. Amanda leverages the power of connection, even in an economic crisis! Getting into the DM’s, virtual coffee’s, & styled shoots. However, all of these connections are key to Amanda truly showcase all that she can do and what she wants to be doing.
