We had the good fortune of connecting with Saman Bangloria Shah and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Saman, what do you attribute your success to?
Customer satisfaction – 100%. I strive to ensure every single of my clients has a smile on their face when they see their dream event. They are the reason for my success. There is no better compliment than the referral of a new client from a past client.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
One of the many things I’ve always gotten compliments on is my ability to cater all my clients needs. I don’t have one set style or particular direction of design that I stick to. I love taking to my clients and have them really envision and describe what their dream event would feel like and look if they were to walk into their event at that very moment. I take those feelings and descriptions and turn them into reality. I dont push my designs on them, I really let them feel like they are in the drivers seat so that their imagination can run wild. A lot of my clients have acknowledged this and have told me this is what sets me apart from others and they love that about me and my company!
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I’d start the day at fun brunch spot – possibly Malibu Farms Cafe! From there probably some sort of activity by the water – possibly a boat tour of Newport Beach. Then a little coffee break at hip coffee shop followed by some shopping at south coast plaza. We would take a break for lunch and have the amazing garlic noodles at Anqi. We would end our day with a fun night out including dinner at Nobu for sushi or North Italia!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My Family! I wouldn’t be where I am without the love and support from my parents, my husband and my kiddos ! It takes a village – that is the truth! My husband supported me when I wanted to quit my full time corporate job and chase my dreams. My parents and in-laws supported me with their infinite prayers for success as well as holding down the fort by helping out with the kids , fresh cooked meals and everything in between to keep the house running while I worked hard long hours to build my brand! My siblings also helped out with kiddos and errands I needed To get done. And now my kids are in that same support system chain- they never complain when I’m out working long hours or am missing out on precious weekend time , soccer games , birthday parties etc. They all keep me going and get me motivated to keep growing!
