As our second wedding anniversary approaches, I’m getting a little misty-eyed thinking back to our big day. Hand on heart I wouldn’t change a thing… BUT looking through some of Sarah Tucker’s work gives me heaps of inspiration for a re-do! Enjoy taking a peek behind the scenes of Sarah Tucker Events…
Hi Sarah! Would you like to introduce yourself to the Glitterati Girls:
I’m Sarah, the founder of Sarah Tucker Events
Tell me a bit about your business:
It’s a boutique wedding design, style and coordination studio. I love creating environments for weddings that reflect the stylish couples well. I love orchestrating weddings to go smoothly and for all to feel at ease – the couple, the bridal party and guests.
Describe your typical day/week schedule.
It is 100% different since my son came into the world! I used to work, work, work… now I feel like I work smarter and harder.
How do you plan and organise your time? What are your biggest challenges with this? What tips can you offer?
I love my day designer by Whitney English – it has helped me tremendously! I have RescueTime downloaded on my computer to check-in weekly on what I’m spending my screen time on. It’s been a huge help to identify where I’m wasting time. I believe in setting your clothes out before you go to bed, and preparing before you go to bed for the next day. It really starts you on the right track.
What are your essential office tools?
Are there any websites or apps that you’d recommend to other entrepreneurial women?
I love Think Splendid, a social media consultant for the wedding and hospitality industries. Her advice is always on point!
What book has most inspired you?
Rework by Jason Fried
What’s your typical working lunch?
I love to go out to lunch and get out of the house since I’m at home much of the day. I try to plan about two days a week to go out to lunch. The rest of the time it’s leftovers from dinner I cooked the night before, or a turkey sandwich and some veggies.
And how do you switch off once the working day is done?
It’s so hard to do! So much of what I do is what I love to do so I’m often finding inspiration for my next project or current project from my own life. However, when I’m on vacation, I’m on vacation. I work hard to align everything so I can breathe easy and enjoy my vacation.
What makes your life sparkle?
My faith and family. All of it could be gone tomorrow but if I had them, I would still count myself richly blessed.
