Hey there! I’m Lindsay, your breath of fresh air. 

Hey there! I’m Lindsay,

This little business of mine was established out of an industry’s emerging need and a crazy dream:

your breath of fresh air.

To demystify what it takes to be a venue owner and how to run a profitable and sustainable venue.

Hey there! I’m Lindsay,

This little business of mine was established out of an industry’s emerging need and a crazy dream:

your breath of fresh air.

To demystify what it takes to be a venue owner and
how to run a profitable and sustainable venue. 

In the past year I’ve brought in over $1M in revenue for various venues across the nation. I’ve guided them through my step by step curriculum that reveals everything from how to secure funding to scaling sustainable growth and everything in between.

I first landed on the creative biz scene 8 years ago as a wedding planner. I quickly built a team under me and as our reputation proceeded us I began having new venues reach out asking to meet me. Once onsite, they asked as many questions as possible. 







What have I seen work and not work for other venues? How do they handle this scenario? Do other venues have this problem and how did they solve it?

Do other venues have this problem and how did they solve it? 

I soon became a trusted friend and I LOVED it. I genuinely enjoyed helping them, but soon the calls started coming during our family dinner time and in the middle of the night. I realized that I needed to do something. Not wanting to leave them high and dry I searched everywhere for a consultant to refer them to. 

Alas, my Google searches were a lot like yours and didn’t return much at all.

So I decided to take matters into my own hands and created a step by step curriculum to guide venue owners (and those aspiring to be) on creating a business that worked for them, not the other way around.

I truly believe in teaching everything I know and not holding anything back. I’m passionate about bridging the gap in venue education, creating community between venue owners, and all the sweet tea I can handle.

I've spent 8 years in the wedding industry as a planner. A wedding planner is the only professional in the industry that intimately knows the pulse of every other wedding professional. Because of this, I know not only what a venue owner needs but also what vendors are looking for in a partnership with a venue and what will have them singing your praises.

He had piercing green eyes, sat right next to me in biology class sophomore year of college, and would not stop trying to make me laugh. Afraid he was going to get us both in trouble I stifled a giggle and ignored him. He was persistent and I dubbed him my best friend. Two years later we had our first date after which he told me he was going to marry me. Today we have the most beautiful little boy together and he is still talking my ear off and making me laugh.

He has his daddy’s good looks and, thanks to his mama’s stubbornness, he wasn’t built for backing down. He lives in Little Boy Land where all jeans have grass stains, toots are funny, dinosaurs are real, hugs are plentiful, Christmas pjs are worn year round, and all stuffed animals are friends. I’m just thankful to be a part of his world. Being his mama is my favorite and most cherished title.

Just outside of the hustle and bustle of Houston sits 5.4 acres of Heaven, our Heaven. Here a soft breeze blows through our majestic oaks, the town shuts down on Sundays for church, neighbors help neighbors, life moves a little slower, and I’m simply known as Finn’s mom. This is where my heart is truly happy and where my soul finds rest.

I’m a southerner through and through, which means I run on sweet tea and Jesus. There’s nothing that can’t be fixed with a little front porch sittin’ and sweet tea sippin’.
