Education - Coaching

School is in session (but don't worry, no bus rides or book reports necessary)!

The Paisley & Jade coaching sessions were the best business decision we have made for our vintage rental company! With vintage rentals being a fairly new concept, especially in Idaho, we were struggling with finding resources and information on how to run such a business. We loved every minute of our sessions with Morgan! She is incredibly down-to-earth, witty, and full of knowledge for growing a rental company. Her heart for helping other businesses was refreshing in an industry that can often feel competitive and closed off. We covered so many topics and were given informative tools that we could only have received from a successful, well established company like Paisley & Jade. The coaching sessions exceeded our expectations and we have no doubt our business is going to thrive because of all that we learned from Paisley & Jade!

If you own a vintage/specialty/eclectic rental company, you know that it’s hard work.  You spend TONS of time explaining to everyone from your lawyer to your tax preparer exactly what it is you do with 200 chairs/colored goblets/antique lace runners …and yes, yes – you know they don’t match.  It’s on purpose!

As we have built our business over the past four years, we have had more of these conversations than we can count, and have been looking for ways to connect with people who GET IT.  Who understand what it’s like to work out of a storage unit, or know how difficult it is to figure out how to package vintage chandeliers for transit, and also believe in the power of scotch guard above all else!

But we don’t just want to talk – we want to share!!

So we started putting information out there on our blog – sharing just for the sake of sharing!  We truly believe that by helping others (even if it’s just a blog post!), we can raise the profile of this industry as a whole.  So we wrote – we wrote about the big stuff, like hiring delivery staff, and things that have helped us grow, and we wrote about the small stuff, like what we take on every delivery. We also released a FREE resource for all our friends – the P&J Guide to Hashtags for Event Professionals!

We always said that we wished we had someone to talk to along the way who understood the unique challenges the little corner of the industry faces – someone to talk to about growing our team, or investing in a warehouse, or marketing such a crazy little business.  So we launched our coaching program  as a way for us to connect with other specialty rental companies around the world.  As a way to give them the guidance and advice we always wish we had been able to find!

We now offer several coaching options, including:

  • P&J for Beginners or P&J for Growth: A three month virtual program where we work one-on-one on your business, with in-depth coverage of a variety of topics including the nuts & bolts of specialty rentals through BIG goals and plans!
  • P&J Half-Day Intensive: A four hour one-on-one program that takes place here in our space at Highpoint & Moore.  This is a wonderful opportunity to use our space as a backdrop to talk about systems, future plans and inventory curation!
  • P&J Continuing Studies: For our previous coaching clients, we have the opportunity for them to come back again & again at alumni rates to target specific issues or dive deep into challenges.  These sessions are scheduled on an as-needed basis.

All P&J coaching clients also have access to our exclusive Facebook group where we share tips, ask each other questions and generally have a good time!

If virtual or in-person coaching isn’t what you had in mind, we also have P&J Processes  – our in-house suite of workflow documents available for download – featuring checklists and documents with editable text fields so you can integrate them directly into your operations.

All coaching dates and digital downloads are available in the P&J Shop!
