So, during our main question-and-answer session Kush Gupta didn’t shy away from sharing direct insights into self-growth skills. He strongly recommends people management as a very powerful attribute to his success. “It helps if you listen to your customers and audiences better. As leaders, we can stay stuck in our own worlds, disconnected from the people we are called to serve. That’s exactly why the bridge has a gap.

Like always, we are here once again to share another truly inspiring success story of Roxy Zapala. It is said that every successful man has a strong woman behind his success. But, in Roxy’s case, this comes with a little twist. As she started doing things her way before the entry of any strong-willed man in her life. She falls under some of the most successful women renowned as wedding planners within Toronto, Ontario, Canada.  It is love and passion for her profession that drives the car for Roxy Zapala and her strength.  Come let us see what Roxy has to share with her fans and followers globally, and how she is making an impact over-all!

The Vision With A Belief

Roxy Zapala

“I have been working in the wedding and special event industry for nearly two decades now. I spent the first decade working strictly with floral and decor displays for weddings and other functions. I also studied  Interior Design at the International Academy of Design and Technology. Once I completed the program I realized that my heart was true at the wedding and event industry and that I wanted to design beautiful spaces for special events rather than residential or commercial spaces. It was something that I was familiar with and something that I loved so  I have decided to further hone my expertise and I became a certified event planner and a certified destination wedding planner,” adds Roxy Zapala happily.

The Beginning Of Art Of Celebrations

Roxy Zapala

Roxy Zapala further shares her pursuit of success as, ”All of the knowledge, experience, and education I have collected along the first 10 years of my career eventually did lead me to open my own business – Art of Celebrations. Here my focus is on creating stunning and memorable events that will WOW both – the clients and their guests.  When I first started the company I wanted to bring something new and exciting to the Toronto market.

Roxy Zapala

She further adds, “Something in the form of a service that has not yet been seen by this city. Thus, I decided to treat each project the way an interior designer would, but applying it to weddings and events only.  I and my team offer 3D drawings and renderings of wedding and event spaces. This is for the reason that the client can see their vision before their big day.  All of my clients love this service. It makes them feel special and at ease knowing that their wedding or special event is so thought-out. We always pay great attention to details not only in the way how the event will look. But, also how it feels and how it makes others feel.”

Roxy Zapala, And Her Future Plannings For Her Clients

Roxy Zapala

Roxy Zapala wants to continue growing and keep offering the complete package for planning and designing services to her clients. She happily adds, “We recently went from offering day-of coordination and partial planning packages to being strictly full planning and design. We want to work with our clients from the beginning until the very end. We also want to get to know them, their style and tastes, and we want to provide them with unparalleled services.  So the hope is to continue growing in that direction and to expend both in local and destination weddings as well as corporate events.”

The Motivational Drive For Roxy

Roxy Zapala

“I love the feeling of LOVE for each and every creation I create in my worklist! Weddings are my weakness and I love planning and designing them. This art of celebration between two persons brings so much satisfaction to me. And, the events just warm up my heart.  But I also love to design and play with art, and many times corporate events and clients provide me with this amazing opportunity. This really pushes me to do some great creative designing. My passion for this industry keeps increasing for many different reasons. Mainly, I just adore what I do. All the hard work that you put into planning a wedding or an event really pays off. Especially,  when you see the look of pure amazement and appreciation on your clients’ faces, “adds Roxy Zapala happily.

Roxy  Likes To Mentor Upcoming Wedding Planners

Roxy Zapala

Roxy Zapala is not one of those people who doesn’t want to share their expertise with newcomers. She loves to mentor each and every one of the newbies in the wedding planner list. She swiftly adds, that ”I always say this to our interns – wedding planning is the labor of love. If you don’t love it, just DON’T do it! It takes dedication, extreme stress and endless hours of work. You have to work non-stop. There is something to be done at all hours of the day and night, till your event actually takes place. Most of the time, you have to work in the evening and of course, on the weekends. Forget about socializing in the summer or having offs or even a weekend.”

Roxy Zapala

Roxy’s further advice for the interns is that” When others are celebrating, we are working. And if you understand that and you still want to go for it –  then ONLY you are purely made for this industry. Otherwise, don’t even think about being a wedding or event planner.  This industry seems glamorous and beautiful in the start –  but, the reality is that it takes ample hours of work. And, many working hands and creative minds to make such magic happen. So even though it is a very beautiful and rewarding industry to be in, it’s also a very stressful and demanding one.”

A New Vision For Every Client

Roxy Zapala

This gifted soul does not belong to the business-minded world of today. And, after meeting Roxy with this amount of passion – you all will agree with us. She is a magician with some magically gifted qualities. “I love designing out-of-the-box and creating events that are unexpected and fresh. I love a good challenge and I would love to have clients’ trust in order, for me to create something truly memorable for them. I know it’s often hard for clients to visualize what things are going to look like, and how everything will unfold but I always listen very carefully to the client’s needs and wants and I make sure that the events we produce surpass their expectations, while still being exactly what they wanted them to be,” states Roxy purposefully.

So guys, now you can contact Art Of Celebrations, and book your truly magical destination wedding with Roxy today!

Branding is something very important for every type of business. Basically, if you want to keep growing your business, you need to focus on branding from the start. At every cost, understand what your customers like to click on. You’re after all dealing with Millennials. And these guys are kind of a high-profile girlfriend that you have to maintain. So, in order to win the game, you actually have to be in the game of branding. Now, how on earth will you build your brand? What are the basics needed for building it as a matter of fact – all of this and much more is covered in a nutshell below.

Building Your Own Brand Is Like Making A Promise:

The strategy is to focus on making something that you can deliver to your customers. Your product or service needs to come in the format of #promise. This ideology behind building your own brand is like, where, how, when and why your customers can come to you. Building a brand image is at the core of your branding process. Then, you need to redefine your business as a brand so that your customers can actually relate to it easily. Brands create the need so that your customers can focus on buying or purchasing whatever you’re selling to them.

Things I Need To Build My Own Brand?

Building a brand from scratch is rebranding. But if you don’t have a brand, that means you have to focus on everything that will matter in getting you the most out of your market share. By market share we mean your customers – that your competitors are taking away right now. Here is your list of features that your brand will need:

  1. Brand logo
  2. Integration of your brand
  3. Creating a voice for your brand
  4. Tagline is important
  5. Building trust
  6. Being Consistent

Where Do I Start?

No matter what you hear, but initially it is your website and logo that you need to focus on. Then comes the integration of your brand for your customers. Like a phone number, email, and customer services. You’ve to be able to get connected through all and any resource that you have.  After this, it is how good a voice your brand has. Think about it like a singer. If you’re good with words and have a soft and melodious voice – you’re bound to attract customers. Here, it is going to be your social availability for your clients. Like, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram etc. But once again, this procedure is not going to get you instant super-famous status in front of your competitors. There is more to branding then only a few social media accounts.

Confused? Don’t Be!

A lot of people think that if they’re doing SEO, they’ve already done branding. Whereas, SEO is just another aspect of marketing – NOT branding. For building your own brand you actually have to understand why you have to choose to be a brand in the first place. Marketing is like paying to get exposure, but branding is something that gives you the stronger and a richer portion of the market. Building a brand is not a day or weeks work. It takes time along with consistency and an expert to guide you through the process. So, what is it that you’re waiting for? Get on a call with us and see how this can happen in reality. Consultation isn’t going to cost you. We understand what can hold you from making a decision. Thus, we give you live examples of ordinary people who like you were worried about being a BRAND.

Your website is the ultimate contact card that your customers will view. Now, you already have a website, then this article is not for you. But, if you’re a beginner, then this is something that can help you easily. You don’t want to get stuck while making your own website. There are tons of sites available online that will tell you all the do’s and don’ts of making your own website. Purchasing a theme will get you the basics. But, hosting and domain will still remain a big question. Next, it is how you will further develop your website to impress your clients, along with optimizing it online. This and much more comes to mind when you start building your own website.

Why Should You Develop Your Own Website?

Think about it simply. Would you want an x, y, z to run your business? No, you would be horrified at this thought. So, why do you want someone else to run your website? Your website is like your visiting card. The well you use it, the better you get the coverage. But, if you use any online free tools, or themes to create your own website, you give an intruder an entry into your business circle. You don’t have much of a hold over making changes, agreeing to changes etc. Thus, always use a trusted resource or company.

Can I Create My Own Website?

Yes, you can. There are no hard-and-fast rules for creating your own site. But, remember one thing, you aren’t a developer and neither do you have enough time to sit and keep developing your website. Further, it will need continuous developing, upgrading and optimization to stay on top of the net. Therefore, you’ll still be needing an expert guideline to make things work. But, that doesn’t mean that you can’t use your imagination to build your own website. You can select your chosen theme, design and website pages. If you start learning HTML, then you’ll need 6+ months at least. Same is the case with learning CSS and PHP languages too. Whereas, Website Builders are EXPENSIVE, and are good for a one-page website only. So, ultimately, you’ll need to get set with a trusted website development company to make the best use of your site.

What About Domain Hosting? 

hosting and domain services - rayman solutionsThis feature is super-easy too. But, once again, if you link with sites that cost $3.00 or $5.00 then it’s just a loss. Don’t waste your money based on a small package of price per month idea. Go with a domain hosting company who is ready to give you customers services whenever you need it. Buying your own domain and hosting with your business name looks professional to your customers. Further, it will give you the extra burst of lighting when it comes to loading your site online. By the way, do you know Apple site loading time is only 1.2 seconds? Same should be the case with your site too.
