#33: Focus On Your Why with Sam Starns
Welcome back to another episode of the We Live to Build podcast.
It’s funny how many people I talk to that started a company to solve a problem they encountered and found no other solution, or the solutions they found didn’t do a good enough job to satisfy their need.
Today’s guest Sam Starns is no different.
Before getting married, she was a wedding photographer, so you would think she enjoyed weddings.
But after regretting her own traditional wedding, she wished there was someone who could have advised her to find the strength within herself to fight for the wedding she really wanted.
That led Sam to start her own company which specializes in advising, planning, and leading couples to experience a custom elopement style wedding with under 25 guests in the most beautiful parts of the world.
With nearly a decade of wedding experience, Sam has traveled to numerous states and countries for elopements to jumpstart the transformation for real change to encourage anyone to become their authentic self.
With a passion for protecting our public lands and love for the outdoors, Sam donates a percentage of services including photography packages and book sales to a nonprofit dedicated to helping preserve public lands.
Sam Starns’ debut book, Elope Your Life is set to release November 2020.
Let’s give a warm welcome to Sam!
And remember, Entrepreneurship is a Marathon, not a Sprint, so take care of yourself every day, so that you can live and love, and have the energy and the passion to run your business, and to invest in your team, and to find a way to appreciate those moments of happiness.
