Lindsay Lucas is a business consultant for wedding venues and the CEO behind Lean On Me Events, a six-figure wedding planning and design firm based in Houston, Texas. As a business consultant for venues, she's most passionate about giving venue owners a strong foundation to build a business that will give them the life they've only dreamt of. She coaches her clients on how to not only create a successful and streamlined business but how to create one that is also sustainable in an ever-growing field. In the past year alone she’s helped her clients bring in over $1 million in revenue, increased their pricing by over 60% and gave one client the ability to stay home with her 3 children all while running a successful wedding venue from the comfort of her home. Lindsay is now striving to take her business nationally and help others outside of Texas. When she isn’t supporting businesses and building others up she can be found playing outside with her son, trying new restaurants with her husband or drinking way too much sweet tea. Lindsay loves her church, crossfit, laughing with her girlfriends, and reading anything by Jen Hatmaker.
