Priority Pursuit


Dec 29, 2021

38. Have you ever wondered how to become an “award-winning” business owner? I mean, you work hard. You produce great work. However, while you regularly see industry peers receiving awards, nobody is knocking on your door to give you a trophy. What gives?

Thankfully, in this episode of Priority Pursuit, award-winning and published wedding photographer Jasmine Norris of Jasmine Norris Photography is sharing exactly how you can become an award-winning business owner—including how you can be named to The Knot and WeddingWire’s “Best of Weddings” lists if you’re a wedding vendor. 

Just to name a few of the awards Jasmine has earned throughout her career (You can find a more extensive list here!), Jasmine is a six-time winner of WeddingWire’s Couples’ Choice Awards, a seven-time winner of The Knot’s Best of Weddings, and a four-year Stevie Awards recipient (with multiple awards earned each year). 

Jasmine is an incredible photographer and business owner and is certainly deserving of these awards. However, Jasmine doesn’t simply receive awards regularly. She’s made applying for awards part of her workflow and uses her awards to leverage her business. And, in this episode of Priority Pursuit, she shares how you can and why you should be doing the same. 

Jasmine shares more in the audio of this episode, but essentially, to become an award-winning business owner, you need to: 

  1. Nominate your business and apply for awards. Don’t wait for others to nominate you.
  2. Research awards within your community, state, or area.
  3. Research awards within your industry.
  4. Research general awards. 
  5. Set up workflows to make applying for awards simple & routine.
