In this episode

The founder of A Day in May Events talks about her story, her process and what she attributes her success to.

At the luxury level of weddings, it’s easy to think you have to live in an epicenter city and have a ton of notoriety to succeed. The whole world has to know you if you want your business to grow. But bigger, famous and splashier isn’t the only route to visibility, success can happen without notoriety. 

You can thrive while being the best kept secret. It’s possible to create these gravitas “goosebump moment” events, and still live your life. A planner can create dreamy destination weddings without living in New York, Miami or LA. 

For Alicia Fritz, fulfillment doesn’t come from being known by the whole world, it comes from connecting with clients and carrying their vision. Why is remaining grounded so important to her? How did she carve out her niche? What do weddings mean to her?
