Careers in Event Planning

how to Pursue Your Passion
and Live an Eventful Life

Do you dream of creating a career that is fun, dynamic, and always exhilarating? Do you envision escaping the every-day mundane boredom of an ordinary job and instead, working on events where no two days are ever the same? Do you envision living a life that you enjoy living every day, instead of waiting for the weekends or vacation or retirement before you feel like you can truly live?  Do you see yourself using your creative side to design amazing events that will be talked about for years to come?

Then you will LOVE a career in event planning!  

If you possess exceptional skills of creativity, ingenuity, organization, and vision; then you can use your inherent talent to make a difference.  Maybe that you know that you can design outstanding experiences that you will remember for the rest of your life, and you want to help others have experiences that they'll remember forever.  You crave a career where you can take pride in creating incredible moments in time by using your natural talents and interests in ways that you can't in any other profession.

And yet, you have no idea where to begin.  

How do i become an event planner?

If you are like most people who decide to start a new career; you are filled with hope. optimism, and motivation.  But, there is one major obstacle; you have no idea where to begin.  It can be incredibly frustrating to know what you want to do with your life, to know that you'd be great at it....if only you could get started!    

My goal is to help people like you learn what it takes to begin your career in event planning.  During my twenty years in the event planning industry, I have seen "event planner hopefuls" with great intentions make the same mistakes over and over again; until they give up, disillusioned and heartbroken that they couldn't make their dream come true.  So I decided to use my extensive knowledge of the industry and give back by helping people in the best way that I know how; by helping those who want to work in the exciting world of events.

  • Why it's so hard to break into event planning and what to do about it
  • The exact steps you need to take in order to start your career
  • What types of certification or education you need
