Congratulations to me, after helping friends and family members create memorable events I followed my passion and signed up to be a Certified Event Planner. I just finished the intense 6-week course and now that I’m certified…What’s Next? I have studied the origins of weddings, created powerpoint design boards and starting my business but what about all the things I don’t know?
One thing I found with the few clients I’ve booked is that they request many add-ons that I just don’t have the full knowledge of: from florals to backdrops – I just didn’t have the answers and had to subcontract the cost. I reviewed my clients and events and thought again What’s Next for me and my business.
After much googling, I came across the iStyle EDU website and found my answer. Instead of handing other vendors business, I could learn the skills and enhance my client packages. The offerings are amazing: floral design, backdrops, coaching and much more.
The pricing ranged from free to $2,000 and of course at first, I was sticker shocked because I just started out. So, I signed up for an affordable webinar, Planning Your Client’s Dream Wedding. Man was I impressed. I was full of knowledge and so inspired to put my skills in motion. The class taught me tools about finding my ideal client and building a great team. The next two events I booked went flawlessly and I didn’t even realize the tools and tips I put into use until I debriefed after the wedding.
As the New Year came I sat down to strategize about growing my business and increasing my revenue. So I thought, What’s Next…
I went back to iStyle EDU’s website and reviewed all their offerings. I clicked on The Ultimate iStyle Experience and WOW – this is exactly what I have been looking for. The price seemed steep but after doing some research, if you separated the topics into different classes it’s really a bargain. They offer payment plans AND transportation which is amazing. I took the leap and signed up! The sign-up process was flawless, and the customer service was super helpful.
So now when I think what’s next… I think I’m ready to learn! I can’t wait to create beautiful backdrops and floral pieces, update my planning and business basics, receive a styled shoot AND I get a coaching session which I’ve been dying to do anyway. Spending 3 days with event professionals and fellow students is going to be so key to my personal and professional growth.
