I have another story in OUTBACK magazine – this time it is a business one about a wedding planner who lives way out in the sticks …
Business » Married to the job
Melissa Bowman was 35 years old and had three small children when she discovered her dream job. Her husband’s brother wanted to get married on the family farm 75 kilometres north of Tamworth, but he and his bride lived in Hong Kong, so he employed a wedding planner to handle the details. As she watched this woman at work, Melissa thought, “That’s exactly what I want to do. I’ve always loved everything about weddings and I love to organise, I love to plan things.”
Initially she thought her location would be a big disadvantage. “But with the internet and social media and word-of-mouth, it just hasn’t been a problem for me at all,” Melissa says.
