  1. I completely agree with Donnie, there’s no overnight success but only the combination of hard work and dedication that makes us successful, experienced and knowledgeable professionals.
    Being part of an association also gives you additional exposure and helps you stand out in the industry (as long as you bring value to the organization). I served on the board of the Association of Bridal Consultants San Diego as Director for 6 years and the experience helped me a lot!
