Through the winter months I tend to keep up on the blog but when wedding season gets here I struggle to find the time. I know most of you think I work mostly on the weekends and screw around through the week. I wish that were the case.
For example, Monday and Tuesday of this week have gone like this.
Monday – I assigned DJs to go with our MCs for this weekends events. I called a couple of our MCs to see how their events went on Saturday. I called to check on some new equipment I ordered and where it was in the shipping process. I cleaned up some gear I am selling on ebay and posted pictures and listed the items for auction. I also looked fore some new tires for our DJ van, so we can sell it. I made a bank deposit from the weekends events. I answered the phone and emailed some potential clients. I then had a 4:00 meeting at my office to plan a wedding with Todd and Donna. After that I rushed to my sons baseball game and coached third base.
Tuesday – I’ve answered more emails. Deleted some emails off our server that had put us over quota. Talked to a web developer about getting our flash site ranked higher. I verified my reservation for the upcoming ARMDJS DJ conference next week and made arrangments for my kids to stay somewhere while my wife works when I am gone. I wrote this blog and managed to find about 2 hours to stain 1/2 my deck. I’ve been putting that off for far too long. I then made a call to a local country club and thanked them for the referal they had given me on the wedding I did Saturday (great time BTW). Later I’ll be going out to buy a new printer and I have a sales meeting at our office at 5:30. I’m also supposed to be at two baseball practices at 5:30. Oops!
I’m not complaining, just setting the record straight. I do work through the week. Tomorrow I’ll be putting the final touches on my wedding for Saturday and verifying I have everything ready for my Friday wedding. I’ve already put several hours of preperation into these events. I also have two more meetings tomorrow night.
Which brings me to the point… I might not have time to blog but I do have time to deliver awesomeness at weddings. Here is an email I received over the weekend.
I wanted to send you feedback about our wedding ceremony & reception. We have been receiving non-stop feedback with the first words being “That was the BEST Wedding” we have ever been to, and a lot of is due to you.
Thank you for helping us coordinate & for leading the charge on our big day. Everyone LOVED the introductions & knew what was going on all night.
I cannot thank you enough for all that you did and I will be sure to recommend you to all future brides… they are crazy not to book you for their big day!

So I have more fun stuff to blog. Hopefully I can get too it sooner than later.
