Friendor Feature – Vintage English Teacup – Friendor Consultancy

  Friendor Feature (1)

You guys remember Vintage English Teacup from several of our Inspiration Collaborations, right? If not, refresh your memory by clicking here to view them all. 
We asked Vanessa, the Founder, Owner, and Operator, to tell us some things she’s proud to have accomplished and a bit about her company.  Before you get started, let us just go ahead and tell you that we were thoroughly impressed! 😉 She talks to us about overcoming obstacles, learning how to network in the wedding industry, and what true success and pride looks like. Enjoy her insights below.

 

 

 

I started!!!
Getting started is rather like jumping off a cliff, leaving behind all the comfort of stable employment and a normal schedule!  I threw a Tea Party at my home for the Royal wedding of  Prince William and the, almost above perfect, Katherine Middleton. I invited a bunch of people imagining that as televised coverage began at 3 am  very few would arrive. Well my street was full of cars and ladies in hats quickly filled my home all pulled in by the lure of Tea served on Real Fine China. Such Fun!!!
Being raised by a father who was self made, this set off all sorts of bells in my brain. If these people like this, who else would? Does anyone else do this? If not why not?? etc etc as any of you creatives know it’s an obsession that becomes your life.
 
 Overcoming obstacles
Well buying endless luscious pieces of Fine China was not at all hard! Especially as I did most of it in my home, England. I have now found two ladies who own antique shops and through the joy of iphones we are able to shop auctions together! If they find anything that is utterly irresistible I dont resist!!! Then my wonderful shipper Trevor wraps each piece, and then wraps it again and puts it in a magic box and it arrives intact.
 
Networking
for the first time involved hiding in a hotel bathroom and having a long conversation with myself about why I was there!!! Funny now but terrifying at the time. It’s vital to make good face to face contacts and to be able to tell them why you are the best thing since sliced bread in about two sentences!  
Next comes choices, where to advertise and why, also extremely difficult at first. My advise, ask someone who is experienced. Then ask some more. Knowledge is Power. I am still asking and still making mistakes with my budget that makes me weep every time. But you learn from those mistakes and hopefully can help others.
Invest in a good contract! end of story!
Get paid before the event! Also self explanatory! 
Be nice to all, in life and in work!
 
What does success look like?
Deciding what success is …hmmm. For some it’s being “busy” all the time. For me its checks in the bank and a happy client! Oh and zero backache or throbbing headache! 
I do not want to launch an empire, I want to earn but not be burdened with more than I can handle. I do my best work when I can focus and not worry about what I am missing.
Spending hours looking at other vendors sites is not productive and often disheartening. Just because they have a million followers does not mean they have a healthy company. Perception is so important in this business, but only if its backed up by substance.
Being who you are is a gift that equals success.
 
Pride!!!
I am proud that I have survived…and did not give up at times when well meaning folks tried to tell me there was no market for a luxury china line. They meant well and perhaps as there was not a market then they were right. However a market now does exist and I am mentoring other start ups doing the same thing because they saw my company! Awesome! 
I am proud of the “real” friends that I have made in the industry and for the support that we have for one another. I am further jolly chuffed to have made the choice not to work with those who seek to only elevate themselves to the detriment of others! Enough said! This frees me to enjoy what I do, most of the time.”
So, what does success look like to you? We say it’s good business and good Friendors.

FRIENDOR FEATURE (1)

Learn more about her and her company in this short Friendor Feature Quiz! Then let’s get a conversation going in the comments below!

Adina Franconi is the “founder and lead planner of Hoopla! Events, a Hudson Valley-based, full-service event planning and design company for proud individualists who are looking for creative ways to infuse hip, heartfelt, and handmade into their special occasion.”

Adina couldn’t choose just one of her accomplishments that she was most proud of, nor what color pen. Oh, Geminis! 😉 We love it!

Here’s a bit more she had to say about them, along with our commentary, and some questions for you guys to tackle in the comment section below.

  1. “Finally getting the courage to take the plunge and launch Hoopla! Events. It ain’t easy launching your own company for the first time.  In fact, it’s scary!”
– We know, gurl, we know! We hear this all the time, and can totally testify.
Vendors, tell us in the comments what the scariest thing was for you? And how did you overcome it?
 2. “Keeping true to myself and the Hoopla! Events brand.  I’ve always been about disrupting the status quo, getting creative and having fun. Not all events are the same, nor, should they be.”
– Our FAVORITE kind of Friendor disrupts the status quo and stays true to themselves and their brand.
Vendors, what’s the most fun part of your work? Have you ever had to turn down a client because they didn’t match your brand? How did you handle it?
3. “Connecting and working with so many wonderful and talented “friendors”. There’s nothing more rewarding than having a cheering squad in your corner rooting you on to succeed!”
– Oh, this answer has us swooning! We loooove collaborating with and promoting the best in the event industry.
Finally, let’s talk about LOVE.
Vendors, you know what the craziest thing Adina from Hoopla! Events has done, so what’s the craziest thing YOU’VE ever done for love?
Looking forward to reading all your answers and conversing with you!

Friendor Feature – The Postmans Knock – Friendors Consultancy

Lindsey is the owner and designer at the Postman’s Knock, a design studio offering graphic design, calligraphy, and illustration. She’s near and and dear to our hearts. Can you guess why? (You’ll know after reading this!)

About Lindsey from The Postman’s Knock (as taken from her website):

“I am a designer with a love for calligraphy and illustration {visit my portfolio to see some of my work}. I enjoy working on a variety of projects; though many of my creations are tailor-made for gorgeous weddings.

A passion for art and beautiful things prompted me to start The Postman’s Knock in 2012, and since then I have been collaborating with clients from around the world on custom creations from my studio in Boulder, Colorado. I work with event planners, brides, small businesses, and thoughtful gift-givers to produce one-of-a-kind pieces.”

We asked Lindsey to tell us a few of her accomplishments with The Postman’s Knock. Here’s what she’s been up to:

  • Making invitations for Hollywood weddings! As a girl who grew up in rural Kansas, it’s really fun and a little mind-boggling to see your clients on television.
  • Building a cool blog with thousands of views per day. Honest to goodness, a lot of my readers don’t even realize I’m a designer. They think I blog for a living.
  • Making impressive and varied network connections. From publishing companies in Holland and NYC to tourism industry groups in the Caribbean to wedding planners and photographers in Atlanta (you know who you are), I know some pretty incredible people through my business!
  • Of course, one big accomplishment to be proud of is working with Schellie + William to develop the Friendor illustrations. I’m a girl who usually watercolors flowers for weddings, or makes flourishy calligraphy. Even though drawing octopuses in outer space was out of my comfort zone, I went for it, and I couldn’t be more proud of the results!

Lindsey contributed an invitation suite and table settings to our second ever Friendors Inspiration Collaboration. The photography by Six Hearts Photography and cinema by Squid Wed Films will be blogged soon, so stay tuned! 😉
