But before we go any further, I'm going to do a shameless plug for my own online Planning Events Course.
I never anticipated creating a course; it was not in my plans at all when I first created this website. However, after hundreds of my
subscribers and readers kept emailing me and asking which event
planning training courses to take, I began to investigate the courses
that are available out there.
And I was stunned, shocked, and
disappointed to see what companies are putting out there and calling it a
course....not to mention the insane prices they charge for it. I
looked into course after course; and I kept finding the same crap
(pardon the French). They teach you nothing more than how to plan
weddings or kids' birthday parties; and then slap on an exorbitant fee,
and call it a course!
Worse yet, they convince you that you need their
"certification" to begin your career; when in reality most of these
certifications mean nothing to your future employers.
*** Let me tell you a secret that none of these companies want me to tell you....you simply can not make a living planning birthday parties and anniversary parties.
To create a successful career in event planning, you need to focus on special events and corporate meetings, conventions, and incentives. ***
And, in my personal opinion, making a living as a wedding planner is difficult and not recommended (keep reading the info below to find out why).
And yet, every single course out there focuses on weddings and parties.
so, I decided it was time to create my own event planning training
course; a course that focuses on real-life skills to apply to real-life,
successful event planning.
Planning Events Course: A Step-by-Step Guide to Plan Events
This course will focus on the elements needed to plan special events and corporate meetings, conventions, and incentives. It will
teach you why this should be your focus, as well as the nuts and bolts of how to do it. This is the only course out there that teaches you what you really need to know to begin a career as a planner. I created this event planning
training course because there aren't any courses out there I felt comfortable recommending; and so I created it specifically for people who want to do more than plan birthday parties or weddings.
