Hello!! What and eventful first quarter! Our LLC was officially started, website buildout and branding is a work in progress and starting to understand the true use of social media and marketing can be a daunting yet exciting task and obtaining my very first and most amazing client!
Several years have been spent working for others and although I never imagined a life working within the hospitality industry, it certainly had its plans for me. There has been so much learning and knowledge gained through this journey since it began for me. As I take the knowledge gained and turn it into this new journey of freelancing and building a business, I continue to learn from business leaders and industry experts. There is nothing more important than continuing education.
Next month for the first time ever I be attending WEC 2019 (World Education Conference) hosted by MPI! I could not be more excited to experience this convention so many of my industry friends have been afforded the opportunity to attend. Finally, as a business owner the opportunity to invest into myself and my company to grow and be the best version of what my clients need and expect. This unparalleled education I am about to receive will not only introduce me to a much larger global network through MPI and the Meetings Industry but, teach me information to pass along to my clients and their events allowing me to assist them in providing the best experiences for their attendees!
One thing learned over many years is no matter the event large or small your clients and their attendees are your guests. They should be provided top tier service and delivered the most blissful experiences. Although it is not always easy, the end result is well worth the sweat put in.
Taking care of them and their needs no matter the issue is why we do what we do. Sometimes this gets lost in the process. I try to remember they are investing not only a financial obligation for your expertise but, in your ability to do what is best for them, their business and their events. It is our duty to execute to the highest of standards and provide the most exceptional level of hospitality. This is why we are planners.
Until next time…..Happy Eventing!
