"What you also learn while working with RAE Moments is that you do everything in excellence. RAE Moments teaches you that it’s about service over status. Anyone looking to excel their business, grow professionally and or have someone as a mentor, RAE Moments is the perfect platform. RAE Moments is truly a one stop shop to learn, share and grow! I had the pleasure to attend the RAE Moments Workshop back in October of 2017. This workshop was a life changing experience for me and my business. The most important take away that I learned from RAE Moments is “collaboration over competition.” It reminded me to be humble and that we need one another in this business. The interactive workshop showed me how to become an event/wedding planner from start to finish and minimize the many mistakes one may make when starting. "

Starting out in any business can be daunting - some days you will feel like you are on the right track, and other days you will feel like fish outside of water.

If you are anything like me when I started, then there will be times you will wish you had a bit more direction – just a little nudge, or someone you could reach out to for some one-on-one guidance. 

I love to take an intimate approach in mentoring, and for that reason, I only take on a limited number of mentees every yearThese private sessions are offered in person and online.
