Redefining essential in 2021

I am frustrated. For a full year, we have had the audacity to group people into categories that in one word tells them if they are important or not absolutely necessary for this country to function. 

During the year 2020 I have been working so extremely hard to prove the worth of my business and of myself as an entrepreneur. But when I look at the numbers...they tell me a different story...they tell me that love is essential...that the work we do in the wedding and event industry to bring people together does make a difference.

So in this episode, we are going to chat about just that!


I'm Abbey Brown. Host of the Milestone Market Podcast. I’m a doodle loving marathon runner who has a passion for all things weddings and small business. I grew up in north Topeka watching my parents run a family business and mastering the art of human resources. At the age of 26, I had the amazing opportunity to leave my corporate America cubical to join forces with my family and open a one-of-a-kind wedding venue in the Topeka community.  Through this experience I fell in love with the industry and the families we get the privilege to serve. 

When I am not picking up confetti off of the ground or restocking the champagne, I am hanging out and dancing with the coolest husband around, Andrew, and our crazy toddler, Bennett. Our chunky golden doodle, Duncan, completes our team.
