WHAT IS THE REFINE COLLECTIVE?

A monthly membership for Wedding Planners looking for a clutter-free, no BS community that will give honest feedback, support and resources for success. 

Things we've done this past year:

  • Reduced the noise
  • Actually implement things together through worksheets and bite sized education (from paid subject matter experts) that are realistic to absorb and apply
  • Expand the Refine team allowing for more tools, resources and better access to me.
Be the first to know when doors reopen!

"Yesterday's call was like a salve! I love this group and feel the “noise” of other things diminishing because I feel like we can get it all here!" - Shellie W.

FIRST, LET'S SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT

I'M NOT HERE TO ADD TO YOUR PLATE! 

I’m here to:
  • Make sure the things on your plate even make sense in the first place.
  • Write responses to tough emails and bad reviews for you!
  • Create time-saving templates you request so you don’t have to.
  • Hop on a call to answer a question, celebrate or grieve with you.
Please do these things for me!

INSIDE THE COLLECTIVE, YOU'LL GET:

Private Facebook Group

I'll draft answers to hard-to-answer emails + responses to bad reviews- this is open and in the FB group, not a private offering

Monthly Trainings + Worksheets- brought to you by professional subject matter experts that are PAID to teach, not pitch.

Templates- I either create a new template each month around the topic, or provide one I already have! 

Office Hours with me- Weekly options, first come / first served.

The option to purchase extended 1:1 coaching with me- which is no longer available for non-members.

Member Features- members are eligible for being featured on the Refine blog, Instagram and Pinterest accounts.

Monthly Group Coaching Session- based on the monthly topic

Monthly Co-Working Session- to hold each other accountable.

Optional Small Groups- based on topic of interest, time zone, commitment level, etc... creating resources and sharing among members.

But remember.... we're not adding to your plate! You're not supposed to do all the things or need all the things. 

Take advantage of 1-3 things, let the rest go and you'll be much happier! 

I LOVE THE FREE FACEBOOK GROUP. WHY WOULD I JOIN THE REFINE COLLECTIVE?

"It feels like a little club! I feel like I know the other members more than in other groups. I feel like we're all cheering each other on and can gain so much from it."

-Anonymous Survey Taker

I want to join the club!!

*Unable to guarantee they won't join at some point.

 

"Right after joining, I was dealing with a client wanting Day-Of for a really low price and Amber was quick to help me with crafting a really well-written response. The monthly training sessions are to the point, no fluffy content, they are filled with real actionable items you can take to move the needle in your wedding biz."

MEMBERSHIP ATTRIBUTES AND VALUES

As you can imagine, this isn't for everyone. I'm looking for certain attributes in Collective members because quality is very important to all involved. You can rest assured that when these attributes are not present, this will be addressed, keeping your investment safe and clutter free. 

  • Teachable and eager for it.
  • Humble and kind.
  • Operates with integrity in general.
  • Embodies a spirit of community over competition, but also has a back-bone and protects their business.
  • Expresses empathy, asks questions and chooses to give the benefit of the doubt prior to making assumptions or accusations.
  • Inclusive and seeks to amplify others.

MEMBERSHIP SUCCESS PATH

 

Mile markers are important! 

 

Each member will receive a clear Success Path with bulleted markers, action items and short educational videos for learning and tracking. Who doesn't love seeing their success in a checklist?!

 

Join the Waitlist for the Collective!

"The Refine Collective is a place where you can connect with real professional planners and learn from them. You always have "Amber 101" if you need her. I found a place that I feel comfortable asking, and I don't feel competition here." 

- Vanina Torres

NEW PLANNER BENEFITS

  • You'll find a place that moves the needle WAY faster than any free group, free download or podcast. The large group is GREAT, but it's harder to be known. And being known can excel your success. 
  • You'll get to rub elbows with the best of Refine Wedding Planners, that have been GIVERS for years. They will be your biggest cheerleaders, ensuring you meet your goals. Simply put, they don't engage in the FREE group much anymore. They have found a new home.
  • Access to me- I no longer offer coaching to non- Collective members.

SEASONED PLANNER BENEFITS

  • You'll get a space free of your staff. :) (If you so choose, of course. They are obviously more than welcome to join as well.)
  • Did I mention less noise?? Are you tired of the same questions on repeat? Tired of giving of yourself, only to see your wisdom being ignored? Tired of asking a question and getting answers you've clearly already considered? Not happening in here! 
  • Freedom to say anything you'd like. As a seasoned pro, you've seen it all in these free groups and being censored isn't happening in The Refine Collective. It doesn't have to because our members are mature, and able to self-regulate. (Kind of nice when people can act like adults, huh?)

"This is a place you come when you actually want advice, not people to help you justify whatever position you have chosen. The people in this collective are genuine and helpful without the fluffy participation awards. We learn more in one month of drilled down, heads down, education with accountability than I could have imagined. And you see the effects that your time and money spent in the collective have on your business."

Brandy Blackford

MEMBER DECIDED CONTENT

The MEMBERS decide what we will be studying each month. MEMBERS pick the topics, MEMBERS nominate speakers... MEMBERS decide what collateral is created and provided. I want this to be what YOU want it to be.

MONTHLY TOPICS

Each month, The Collective will have a PAID speaker, a worksheet and a template - all related to the same core theme. Conversation in the group will focus on the chosen theme for 4-5 weeks at a time. 

This is what we studied in our first year, but you'll be joining just in time to help us pick the next round of topics!

  • Content Creation

  • Diversifying Products

  • SEO, Google Rankings, Analytics, Adwords, Audits, etc 

  • Systems, Process + Workflow (for emergencies too)

  • Design Process and Techniques

  • Social Media Management and Algorithms 

  • Money Mindset- finances, accounting, taxes, investments, savings, retirement, etc

  • Staff- finding the best, managing, understanding personalities, actual process of hiring associate planners and interns 

  • Pricing for profit and honest conversations with bosses making real money from planning weddings.

  • Working clients through your process

  • Sales and marketing, overcoming undercutting and general objections

  • Onboarding + Offboarding 

  • Marketing Mistakes

  • Diversity and Inclusion 

    *These are listed in no particular order and timing is based on speaker availability. 

SPEAKERS

A speaker that SPECIALIZES in the chosen monthly topic is PAID to teach on the theme, without pitching their products and courses. 

Because people are valued around these parts. 

The speakers are diverse in a variety of ways. Each with varying backgrounds, life experiences, viewpoints and differing lenses for us to all pull and learn from. 

"I joined the Refine Collective because my business was STAGNANT and the Refine Collective has helped me by LEARNING FROM OTHERS. And I've stayed in the Collective because I FEEL IT PROVIDES ME WITH A COMPETITIVE EDGE OF KNOWLEDGE IN THE INDUSTRY I OTHERWISE WOULDN'T GET." 

-Anonymous Survey Taker

"The biggest game changer for my business was investing in Refine. It's given me a group of amazing entrepreneurs that I’m in contact with almost daily, sharing the same goals and direction. Before that, I felt like I was over here on my own little island planning away! I invested in multiple areas of the Refine program, and have seen my business skyrocket since implementing the process just over a year ago! It's allowed me to take on more business and spend more time with my family, all while making sense for anyone on my team to jump in at any point in the process."
