Episode 6 – Rob Schenk, Your Wedding Business and the Law

Greetings fellow “celebrationists”, and a very Happy Thanksgiving!

This week we are discussing the law. We cover contracts, disputes, insurance, and offer a terrific collection of tips and resources to get your wedding business on the right legal path.

As this is Thanksgiving week, I’d like to say thank you to all our guests so far in 2015, and to all of you for tuning in. Whatever you end up doing, I hope you get a chance to relax, kick back, and spend some quality time with those you love.

If you have listened to any episode of the show (I hope you have), you will know I am originally from the United Kingdom. The Thanksgiving holiday is not one we celebrate, and so things can feel a little bleak between Guy Fawkes night and the end of year festivities. I am sure, if we put our minds to it, the Brits could come up with something fun to celebrate, and fill that cold, winter gap. Do you have a suggestion? Why not write and let me know (team@celebrationshow.com).

Don’t forget to sign up for our newsletter, and get your automatic entry into our free monthly draw. The first edition (and winner!) hits inboxes on November 31st.

That’s all from me for this week. Happy listening, and don’t forget to look for something to celebrate every day …. because life should be a celebration!
