July Goals and a HUGE announcement

So June kinda flew by huh? I know I've said it a dozen times, but June was wonderful! It was more of a down month for me and I was able to focus a lot on where I want One Sweet Day in May to go. I put some June goals up a month ago and I stuck to pretty much all of them. Super proud of myself actually. There are a few exceptions...the gallery walls did not get done, but the frames are ready to go! Progress...The One Sweet Day in May newsletter is still in the works because some exciting things have been happening that have to wait to be announced and what better way than with a newsletter?! So I wanted to wait a little longer on that and it officially launches August 3rd! It's going to be bursting at the seams with upcoming adventures and behind the scenes sneaks!

July Business Goals

I have a few business goals this month. Continue to blog, book 2 more 2016 brides, send out all client and vendor gifts. There is one HUGE goal however and I'm not going to lie, it makes me a little nervous. One Sweet Day in May has just been me so far. I'm proud that every aspect of this business has been created by yours truly. This moment has come way faster than I ever imagined, but it makes me grateful. OSDIM has grown in leaps and bounds in both small and big ways. I've been told by many industry friends that what has been working and what is presently working will change and friends, it has. So I'm happy to announce that my July goal is to create a One Sweet Day in May team. I am officially looking to bring on 2-4 interns for the Fall wedding season. Fall is jam packed with floral filled weddings and having a small yet mighty team will help me keep balance and allow my business to keep growing whilst in the midst of the busiest season to date. I am also looking to hire a part-time office assistant every other week for about 5 hours a week! I'm so excited!

So let's get to the details...

This internship is a unique behind-the-scenes experience. Here you will learn how a floral studio operates, manages work flow, and you will learn techniques through hands on floral design. Positions will assist with all hands on areas of One Sweet Day in May during wedding weeks. 

Internships are on a trial basis. After the Fall season, positions will become paid starting Spring 2016. 

Internship Requirements

No floral experience is necessary, but you must have an interest in the wedding industry and have a desire to learn about floral design. 

You must be hardworking, loyal, and trustworthy.

I would love to find people who are relatively close to the Richmond area for the weekdays when we will be prepping florals and containers. This requires about 10-15 hours on wedding weeks. Schedules will be made a month in advance. Out of town ladies are welcome too for day of setups and installations! 

Must be ok with traveling to and from wedding venues on event days. Most of my weddings are setups only and usually Saturdays mornings through mid-afternoon. Must be ok with possibly using your vehicle for floral transport. You will be paid mileage and gas.

Loving Taylor Swift, Starbucks, laughing, and not taking yourself too seriously is a huge plus. I want this to be an educational yet fun environment. 

To Apply

Please send in your resume, cover letter, your social media links, and a 500 word essay on why you'd be a great addition to the One Sweet Day in May brand. Please send all applications or inquiries to Michelle@Onesweetdayinmay.com by July 31st, 2015
