Just like in business, there comes a time when we, as individuals, need to take a step back to assess and realign our personal and professional goals to accomplish our objectives and goals. After taking some time to create a new short and long-term vision for myself; I determined that I need to realign my daily tasks and objectives to achieve my dreams. In January of 2018, I began my pursuit of a doctoral degree and am working on earning a Doctor of Business Administration in Leadership.
My doctoral program and teaching business courses during the spring and fall semesters are consuming a majority of my time. To bring a better balance between work, life, and school and to ensure my family gets the proper attention they need and deserve, I have decided to step away from the mainstream wedding industry effective at the end of this year. Effective immediately, I am no longer booking any weddings. While I have had the opportunity to work with so many wonderful people, and I have enjoyed every moment of the past four years spent writing and performing wedding ceremonies, it is time to finish this chapter and start the next. Wedding Ceremonies by Scott F. Raper has been a critical chapter in my life, and I am forever grateful for the opportunities to celebrate some of the most amazing love stories.
Thank you for all of your support, and I appreciate your understanding as I realign with my new personal and professional goals. My decision will not impact any clients who currently have a contract with me, and I look forward to the last wedding celebrations on my schedule.
