Today we’d like to introduce you to Carlyn Tribble-Repchak.
Hi Carlyn, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
I started working in the sports and events industry after I graduated from college, and for the longest time, told myself that I would never plan weddings. I then started having friends ask me to help them with their weddings since they knew I was an event planner. One wedding led to 3. Then I decided hey maybe I should start charging for this. I originally started my company with a partner back in 2012 but in 2018 decided it was best to go solo, rebrand and refocus. The last few years, I have worked on improving my brand and this past fall, I became a Certified Wedding Planner with the Bridal Society. I am beyond grateful for this organization and owe a lot of my growth and success to it!
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Running your own business is not without its challenges. Realizing that you have to understand and execute so many areas of the business and industry is for sure a wake-up call. In the beginning, the challenges were having to figure out how to run a business with someone and making sure the work was equal. Then once I started on my own the struggles were making sure I’m posting enough on social media and making sure I was getting enough clients.
Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I am a wedding and event planner. I specialize in weddings and social events. My goal is to make my clients feel at ease when planning the biggest day of their lives. What sets me apart from others, I would say, is my personality and passion. I was born to create and plan beautiful and amazing events.
Any big plans?
I am looking forward to continuing to grow my business and brand. I would love to dive more into corporate events and explore that avenue.
