How to run a small business? 5 tips from a professional bridesmaid


Trying to start up your start-up? This is going to sound crazy, but there's a professional bridesmaid in town who's giving the help you need.

Jen Glantz’s Bridesmaid-for-Hire crash course is a low-budget creation with high-value content and multi-industry use. It’s a one-stop shop. No gimmicks. No glamour. For $250, you get a mile-long Google document, BFF-style instructional videos, easy-to-do worksheets and a list of free tools. 

Why should you trust a woman who gets paid to put on polyester dresses and walk down the aisle with strangers? Because this Boca Raton native is the real MVP of bridesmaids. She helps plan bachelorette parties and bridal showers. On the big day, she serves as an on-call therapist, personal assistant and peacekeeper. In the past two years, she's been in more than 40 weddings, made more than $10k and published a book. 

A post shared by Jen Glantz (@jenglantz) on

She’s a true hustler. She started the business after her "bridesmaid for hire" Craigslist ad went viral. With no business background knowledge or experience, she made every mistake in the book. And she came out on the other side a star. She's a woman you can trust — the kind of teacher you want. 

Here are 5 lessons from her crash course that you should consider if you’re new to the start-up life:


What to Expect 

This course is for more than aspiring professional bridesmaids. It's for those who want to start a small, unique business and for those who want to be an entrepreneur but don't know where to start. 

Glantz has basically done all the leg work for you, she’s finished the start-up race, and instead of keeping the prize to herself, she’s sharing it. Seriously, she’s done all the preliminary work for you. Not to mention, the woman is so honest and vulnerable that you’ll immediately feel like you and your business idea are in good hands.

What to Like

It’s not a pyramid scheme. You're being empowered to be an entrepreneurial boss.

What to Love

Glantz talks (sometimes screams) directly to you, so be sure not to skim the information. And definitely don’t skip the videos. She’s rooting for you and wants you to be as successful as her — if not more so. She genuinely wants you to win, which means you’ve officially acquired a mentor. Go you!
