- How did your company start and how did it grow? Propos’Ability, originally named Couture Bridal Secrets, was founded out of a love for planning events and a passion for weddings. What started as a hobby grew into a business in 2013 when Couture Bridal Secrets opened its doors. A few years into working with some amazing couples, my best friend got engaged and it didn’t go off as smoothly as we were so anxiously expecting. In the days that followed, as we were dealing with the aftermath of the postponed proposal, I had an epiphany! It dawned on me that proposing marriage is “nerve wracking” for men and, as with many areas of life, our well-meaning men are not the best at thinking about and organizing details… (that’s why they have us). So wouldn’t it be great if a women could send her partner to us and we could walk him through the planning process. We would help him to build a proposal that was unique to their story and assist with all the details that he may not otherwise think of like knowing her nails need to be done so that she is ready to show everyone her new ring! Within a few weeks Propos’Ability went from conception to implementation.
- How did you do things before PayPanther and how has PayPanther helped today? Inefficiently! I was constantly frustrated at the lack of features various cloud-based project management & wedding planning software offered. As my frustration increased, I had determined to just have what I needed created and then by accident I stumbled on PayPanther. It literally provided everything I needed! It was a miracle and I love it! PayPanther allows me to run by business efficiently through one software.
- What is your favorite thing about PayPanther? Where do I start? It provides everything that our company needs. The client portal is a great selling feature to the business as well as the secure messages. I also really like being notified when a client has viewed a quote or message. It allows me to keep my finger on the pulse of how the business is doing.
- What is one piece of advice you would offer other business owners in your industry? When growing a business from the ground up it’s easy to dwell on what still isn’t happening and how much more growth the company has. We neglect to celebrate the small wins. We are in this for the long run so taking the time to see how far you have come keeps you motivated to continue on.
