We are excited to announce that Mayra Castillo and Xochitl Gonzalez, the fabulous duo behind AaB Creates, will be joining us for a second year at Be Sage Conference! Last year, these two ladies shared some incredibly valuable lessons on how to scale a service business in a way that will allow you (as an owner) to do more of the BIG stuff and not so much of the exhausting stuff.
One thing that Kelly and I love about these two is their friendship. (The foundation of this great relationship is not only the basis of their business ventures, but also the backbone of their mentoring site Besties in Business.) We’ve invited them to give a talk on what it means to be a bestie in this industry. They will kick off the conference by imparting wisdom on how to be that person to others. We can all do more when we work together.
(By the way, you’ll want to catch these two on TLC on July 30th at 10pm on a segment of Extreme I Do’s.)
Here is a little more about Mayra & Xochitl…
Mayra Castillo and Xochitl Gonzalez are serial entrepreneurs who began working together nearly 15 years ago as event producers for The Clio Awards before launching their own Event Design & Planning Firm, AaB Creates. Their focus on unique locales and creative clientele has led them to be the go-to firm for fashion, tech and entertainment professionals seeking out of the box, high-style events.
In 2009, after watching the demand for Day-of planning grow, Mayra and Xochitl launched Just About Married. Offering one service and one service only, it has since grown to be New York’s only “Month-of” service catering to the luxury market. They are in the process of expanding Just About Married to service Southern California market. AaB Creates and Just About Married have been featured in over 200 publications, both print and online, and Mayra and Xochitl have been featured on The Style Network’s Whose Wedding is it Anyway and TLC’s “Extreme I Do’s”.
Last year, after speaking and attending the Be Sage Conference, the two women were inspired to start Besties in Business, a video/podcast and consulting service aimed at working with female entrepreneurs.
We’ll see you this November in Dallas!
BE SMART. BE BRIGHT. BE SAGE.
