Welcome to Ignite! From Burnout to Breakthrough. A personalized growth regimen + individualized accountability for independent event planners who LOVE what they do, but HATE that growth is still such a grind!
Are you starting the year knowing something has got to change?
Especially after the pandemic that flipped our industry upside down, you’re completely exhausted and overwhelmed. You love what you do, but feel like you’re burnt out and ready for a change.
If you are:
- Tired of working endless hours and missing out on LIFE
- Bringing your skills to clients who don’t appreciate you
- Always fighting misunderstandings about your value
- Working way too hard, but not getting the flexibility to show for it
It’s time to IGNITE your thought leadership & watch your business MULTIPLY!
I’ll be honest. I really struggled with my business early in my career. I knew I was great at planning events, but the work was exhausting and frustrating, and I wasn’t seeing the money I knew I should be making. I was watching people with way less experience winning contracts left and right while I struggled.
But then I realized something HUGE. I was letting my business run itself, instead of taking the proactive steps I needed to make my business work for ME.
- I started to focus on the work that fuels my skillset and serves my clients uniquely.
- I took a hard look at my services, client list and finances – and made some hard decisions to focus my time on what would align most with where I wanted to be.
- I streamlined and professionalized my processes to serve my clients and a team that could grow and scale.
- And, most importantly, I started to see my business quadruple while my workload seemed lighter than ever.
With all these changes, I found the FINANCIAL AND TIME FREEDOM to do the things that MATTER TO ME AND ALIGN WITH MY VALUES like raising my kids, having hobbies, and enjoying my life.
And now I want to help YOU do the exact same thing.
Take Action To Grow Your Business Now!
If you could get one more client a year, or bring in an all-new revenue source, would it make a difference for you? Would you put in the work to get to the next level?
“I’ve owned my event planning business for almost 8 years. For several years I have been feeling overworked, underpaid, and unsure of the direction I should be going in. The Ignite program has truly changed my perspective on my business.
I am a professional development junkie, so I listen to podcasts, go to conferences, read articles and books, etc. But nothing has made a major impact on my business like Ignite. First of all, having a program that is specific to event planners was one thing that set this apart from other growth opportunities I have done in the past.
Secondly, having someone personally guiding me on the path was huge. Liz offers so much knowledge and shows you how to look at your business with a new perspective that can truly impact growth. And getting to experience this with others made it a wonderful experience. This program has given me the tools I needed to figure out the kind of work I really want to be doing while at the same time, and sometimes more importantly, the kind of work I DON’T want to be doing.
Because of Ignite I will be making a major pivot in my business, which is exciting and not as scary as it would be doing it alone. But even without the major pivot, minor shifts have caused me to let go of low-paying events and clients that do not align with my ideal work, which opened the door to new opportunities that are higher paying, and the kind of work I want to be doing. I have also had the courage to ask for and get more money from recurring clients.
Even if the program was over now, I would call it a success. My revenue will be higher this year than it was last year due to this program alone. And we still have several months of the program to go! I highly recommend this program if you are feeling stuck, want to make some changes and need someone to hold you accountable, or if you are just not feeling your career or business going the direction you want it to go.”

“For anyone who wants to get serious about being a proactive and strategic business owner, I highly recommend applying for the Ignite program. It’s not only given me the tools I need to prepare for 2019, but I also feel empowered and unafraid to take risks, knowing that my business core aligns with my personal talents and beliefs.
Ignite gives you the resources and training the way an incubator does but unlike an incubator, Liz’s approach is not to isolate your learning experience in a bubble but to provide actionable weekly goals that are relevant to what’s happening with your business in real-time. She provides constant support as you attempt to implement what you’ve learned, whether she’s proofreading an email campaign you’re working on or new copy for your website.
Ignite has allowed me to sharpen my brand by being clear about the kind of problems I want to solve. Developing my business’ core values and identifying my target clients has helped me to immediately identify when there is misalignment with staff, vendor partners or clients. This allows me to shift my approach quickly and proactively course-correct before it has a negative impact on my business.
As a result of following the Ignite curriculum, I now have a clear vision for my business and a detailed roadmap on how to get there!”
