Browsing through the internet asI do late at night, I came across an article in a Wedding magazine online which featured our friends at Calico Moon. It referred to how the business had evolved and become a success. And gave full credit to LoveDub Weddings for our help.
Bethany, a complete stranger to me, sent me an Email in early 2010 expressing her desire to set up a successful VW Wedding business and needed some advice on a few things. I did not hesitateto respond and provide her with all the advice and support she needed in theearly days. Being a shoulder to cry on in the stressful high season days and reassuring her that the choices she was making were correct. Over the years wehave developed a strong friendship and Calico moon are now more like a sistercompany to LoveDub Weddings, helping each other out where we can.
I am not a competitive person and enjoy sharing my knowledge with others. So instead of shunning her request and seeing her as competition I relished in the opportunity to provide guidance and help to start Calico Moon on the road to success. Providing them with the knowledge and experiences we had encountered and the right legal jargon and forms, including the best insurance and cover for the industry was just a drop in the Ocean as Bethany and Simon embraced their new business with both arms and their hearts.
The first thing I remember Bethany saying is "I hope one day we are as successful as you guys". Within a year they had reached our service standard and vehicle capacity which took us the best part of 3 years. Hats off to you guys for all the blood, sweat and tears that you have encountered along the way. Setting up your own buiness is a fantastic thing but it comes with concequences and decisions that we have to face.
Sadly due to personal reasons, Calico Moon is now up for sale and a great opportunity has arisen for someone to just step into a very successful business with very little effort as it is so established and well known in the Northampton area. We will miss our new found, dearest friends when they leave the industry but hope that the new owners when found will also continue the strong bond that LoveDub Weddings and Calico Moon share
I am just glad we were able to help a dream become a successful reality. It is strange how one act of random kindness can have such a life changing affect to the person you help.
