How to make connections and grow your business with Hazel Parsons

Whoop! The latest interview in my Gin and Magic YouTube series championing strong creative women is here! Straight from my home to your eyes + ears, this week featuring the fantastically knowledgeable mermaid hair-loving Hazel Parsons!

I was keen to get Hazel on the show because she has always been an absolute champion in the wedding industry. Find out how a chance meeting at the Eden Project many moons ago has led to a strong connection and actually this is pretty much Hazel’s motto. She is that woman who connects everyone to everyone else they need to know. So if you don’t know her yet, you can change that right now.

She’s a wedding co-ordinator and a wedding business consultant, so it’s no wonder she’s a director of the National Association of Wedding Professionals and co-founder with Jenny Wren of Jenny Wren Events & Planning of the South West Wedmeetups.

I wanted to ask her more about her story, how she has grown her business and what she does when she’s feeling stuck.

Enjoy and please don’t forget to hit like + subscribe if you enjoy the Gin & Magic videos 🙂

Thanks so much, Hazel, you were fab!
