We love the phrase “Community Over Competition,” which is simply described as “getting to the top by building others up!”
Fairy Godmother was born here in Bakersfield, what we like to call the “biggest small town,” and we first grew simply by word of mouth. There was no advertising, our growth was directly correlated to referrals of past clients, guests, and friends.
Part of this business is education. We attend conferences and are even invited to special events with the most elite vendors in the business. At one conference, in particular, ISSE in Carmel, Fairy Godmothers Colleen and Cassandra were rubbing elbows with the one and only Colin Cowie.
At this conference, Colin shared that our vendors are SO much more than just your caterer, or your photographer… They are our friends! We are all in this together and that we should let that show by calling them “friendors.”
If you have been witness to a “Fairy Field Trip” you should know that more than one creative mind with a notepad on the move is just a pinch of the fairy dust that Fairy Godmother offers. The ideas were brewing and viola, the “Collaboration of Creative Partners” luncheon was born.
A HUGE part of setting goals is creating a plan to put them into action, and we have done just that!
We have been able to collaborate with some of the best in the business to hold these “Collaboration of Creative Partners” luncheons each month! With each new month, we invite a fresh new group of guests who may be new to the industry or just may have never had the opportunity to meet other vendors!
Watching the magic unfold is just part of the fun we have with these events, the friendships that are created are what we strive for.
For January, we had a great group of vendors join us! Ben Hess of Ben Hess Photography, Jennifer Varner of Jennifer Varner Photography, Amber Kiselburg with the Bakersfield Marriot, Bryan Oberg with the new Iron Lily venue, Allie Mae Perkins of Beautiful Life Nation and DJ Jimmy Sanchez!
We thank each and every guest that attends our “Collaboration of Creative Partners” luncheons, we know that your days are full and time is precious- but we love getting to know everyone a little bit better and spreading the happiness that this “happy business” brings us!
