Let's dive into how to turn your passion into a successful business and find joy even in the elements you don't love. Get ready to craft a work life you truly adore! For a full dive, listen to Episode 125 of the I Do Wedding Marketing podcast here.


Finding Your Passion We all have something we love right? It could be as simple as a hobby or something bigger like a career. And turning that passion into a moneymaker, well, that's what many people dream of. Hence, the key thing here is being able to identify what gets you excited, and then finding ways to turn it into a form of income. That's exactly what Nina Addeo talked about in this episode. She shared her journey of turning her love for social media into a viable career and encouraged her listeners to do the same. She confessed that starting from creating blogs and affiliate links wasn't easy but ultimately, as she focused more on what she truly enjoyed, it only elevated her love for her work.


Embracing Different Roles Job satisfaction isn't just about being in charge. In fact, many people who enjoy their work aren't necessarily always the boss. It's more about finding the role that brings the most joy, even if it involves tackling some less exciting parts. On that note, Nina delivered a poignant message, explaining that while owning a business can be rewarding, it's not the only way of attaining work satisfaction. She expanded on how people can be truly happy working for brands they love. It's not necessarily about ownership, but rather about joy in every task, therefore she highlights the need for finding roles within the industry which tick all your happy boxes.


Q & A Segment: Marketing Engagement Strategy Marketing, especially on social media platforms, can be tricky. It's about striking the perfect balance between being engaging, genuine and not coming across as overly promotional. Personalized direct messages on platforms like Instagram can be a powerful tool, but it's important to not go overboard. Nina took up this subject matter with useful insights on promotional tactics for wedding planners. The advice was straightforward – use personalized Direct Messages (DMs) but limit their number per day. This strategy would help wedding planners avoid appearing pushy or spammy. The idea here is to balance your efforts and concentrate more on the quality rather than just the quantity of DMs.
