Mornings with Mayesh: Designer Panel Discussing COVID-19

Our April 16th Mornings with Mayesh featured three very special guests - Eddie Zaratsian of Eddie Zaratsian Lifestyle and Design, Amanda Allan of MMD Events, and CeCe Todd of Cece Designs. These talented & entertaining designers joined our COVID-19 discussion to share their experience, perspective, and advice. We hope you enjoy and feel free to send in your questions for future shows!


Also, share in the comments below what you have been doing to fill your time? Have you pivoted your business? Have you updated your contracts?


Here are the video, podcast replay, and show notes:








  • Amanda, at the start of this crisis, you caught my attention because of how the Tampa event professionals came together immediately to talk about the issues and potential steps to get through this  - can you tell us how that went?


  • What are some things that you are doing to fill your time right now?

  • Have any of you pivoted your business in an attempt to find new revenue streams?


  • Contracts - what is the best way to deal with clients and what types of clauses do you recommend to have in your contracts?


  • From Danielle: My biggest question concerns rising flower prices after the pandemic passes. Being a wedding florist we quote contractual prices to our customers 12 to 16 months in advance. I am wondering what we can expect as far as wholesale flower prices go in the future. I'm assuming that they are going to increase and my profit margin will drastically decrease. I am not sure that I will be able to continue working in the industry which I love and have been involved in for over 30 years.
