Hello Derrick,

I think the idea for a wedding workshop is fantastic. I think the idea about the blog is great as well, maybe that could include your whole social media workflow, and if time permits, what goes into your podcast. Which I love,, by the way. Keep up the great work.

A workshop on the business side would be fantastic. I know no one every answers the question of how much do I charge because of price fixing. What if you created a fictitious market and used numbers accordingly? It would be very informative for you to say this service costs you X. Then we could extrapolate that to our markets.

Anyway, there are my two cents on your upcoming workshops.


Hi Derrick,

I'm also interested in a potential 2013 wedding workshop. I don't see it listed but you mentioned it as a possibility in one of your podcasts.

Thanks, Jerry
