Lessons Learned and Capitalizing on them! Perseverance….

I recently began my newest side of my venture, event planning. I have been thrilled to be back in the industry where I grew up and first fell in love with it as a career. After having gone through several years of being absent and raising a young family (they are teens now) and realizing that kind of life (10-12= hours a day) was not conducive to family life, I have reentered the way of life on my terms! I have been able to incorporate planning events into my already existing promotional marketing company. The added dimension has blossomed into something with so many possibilities for the future. I have appreciated the clients that have given me the influence to create the ideas I presented and have seen the value in raising their profiles in the marketplace. As well as having realized the value of being a part of two of my newest clients, www.LinkingRaleighnc.com and MA Engineering, organizations. So Thanks to Greg @LinkingRaleigh and Arvin Manitkala of MA Engineering. Thanks guys! You’re the best. I will continue to help you all attain the exposure in the market place of events helping the members of LinkingRaleighnc.com and its members gain their next opportunity and gaining more web and marketing knowledge.
In times as uncertain as these, with the market going up and down like a yo yo, I have been able to build upon something so innate to me as breathing is. Event planning has captured my heart once again and it flutters with every success I bring to the table! The thrill of it all, it really is not work at all. This passion that has captured me once again, is the same kind of passion I wish for everyone. At the time, before his passing before my upcoming marriage to my then fiance, my future father in law gave me the same advice my Dad did when I was trying to decide what to do with my life, “Always Follow Your Heart” So true are these words. I have finally begun to understand these words as my wisdom and experience has taught me. And my kids see what the perseverance efforts and feeling of pride can bring and I hope it rubs off on them and their decisions for life.
