19 Jul Success by the numbers: A Conversation with Wedding Industry Leader, Carissa Kruse
I’m thrilled to welcome wedding maven Carissa Kruse to discuss the value of building a nationwide brand in just three years. In this episode of 22 Motivational Minutes With Marlo, Carissa and I go “there,” revealing the kind of desire it takes to know you’ll figure it out and do whatever it takes to reach that goal.
Are you at a point in your business where you need to take a leap? Listen to this conversation and accept the challenge of the strategic leap, all while using facts and numbers to measure your success.
Carissa Kruse is an Iowa native and a graduate from Mount Mercy University, where she majored in Marketing and Business Management.
In 2014 she developed Weddings by Carue, a service designed to assist brides with the design and printing of invitations at affordable prices. Weddings by Carue quickly expanded, adding photography, photo booths, and cinematography to the list of services.
In 2016 the company reached a new level, taking the brand nationwide with sales reps in multiple states as well as rolling out a vendor reseller program.
Carissa is a mother of one and relishes time spent with her family. She attributes the success of her company to her foundational desire to help others love what they do. Her team is comprised of photographers, cinematographers, and graphic designers that are passionate about their art and the people who enjoy it.
