Growing Your Team & Money Mindset with Lucy White - The Content Collective Podcast

Updated: Oct 20, 2022

S3 Episode 4: Growing Your Team, Money Mindset and getting uncomfortable with Lucy White of Wiskow & White



In this episode I speak with Lucy White from Wiskow & White a fellow wedding planning business specialising in Italian weddings. Wiskow & White is the union of Lucy’s decade in events and marketing for some of the UK’s biggest brands, and Danielle’s (her business partner) 30 year career in Italian wedding catering and planning.

Having started their careers in the wedding industry at a very young age things have now come full circle and here they are. Weddings and a love of love must be in their blood. Their empathetic nature is a super-power and it allows them to create authentic relationships and weddings that perfectly suit each of their individual couples.

It's one of my favourite conversations to date where we discuss growing a team, building team relationships and the fear of letting go and trusting others with your business.
