The Wedding Biz – Episode 440 DAVID BEAHM: Reflections and Using Trauma to Spark a Creative Fire
Andy welcomes David Beahm of David Beahm Experiences back to The Wedding Biz, as he has been on the show several times before! David is a very popular world-class wedding designer and planner based out of New York City and is known especially for his trademark flower creations. He has helped design countless weddings for high-profile names such as Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas, and he has also done work for a number of celebrity and Fortune 500 corporate events.
David reflects on his journey over the last couple of years and how trauma has taught him to be less reactive. He also looks back on his days as a teacher and what that time taught him, how he recharges after feeling close to burnout, why we need not to try to control things that we can’t actually control, how he appreciates alone time, and so much more!
Andy, as always, really appreciates David’s time. He really appreciated this chance to catch up and hopes that you enjoy listening! He would really appreciate it if you would share the podcast with at least three good friends who would also get something out of it and would also be appreciative if you were to subscribe to the podcast if you aren’t already so that you never miss a new episode. Be sure also to leave a top review wherever you listen because that really helps out the show and helps people find it!
