In this episode, I sit down with event planner, Jon’ll Boyd. Jon’ll’s infectious joy and bright personality help give some peace about a topic that can often be stressful for small business owners: evolving and shifting your business in new seasons of life.
After a successful career in sales and marketing, Jon’ll embarked on her journey to start her own event planning business. Jon’ll serves brides, grooms, and corporations in the DC wedding, taking care of all their planning needs.

At the end of the day, we entrepreneurs can’t possibly be in control of every little thing that might come our way. Regardless of your faith, understanding that things won’t be perfect and that things might go wrong is one of the first mindset shifts you need before evolving in your business.
Jon’ll also shares her insight on trusting your instincts to know when it’s time to shift when it’s time to shift in your business.
