I Need Your Help!
Kyle and I further discussed my new idea for career change. Basically the plan is this. Get in on some projects this year to build up a network and references. By next May get hired to do event planning, the goal is at least once a month until November. Then I want to double or triple that. And go from there. By the time I get back from Egypt in 2011 I should (positive thinking here!) be completely changed over into my new career. I will be at TypeAMomCon this year (held right here in town!). Also got in touch with a fellow paranormal investigator about Phantom Con. Not so sure it’s still on but I am waiting to hear. If so I am gonna squirm myself in there lol. When we talked about this earlier Kyle just stared at me and said, “Man, do you work fast!”. Yea, that’s that whole planning mode thing going on.
So I said I needed your help. Well let’s just get to that shall we? I have some questions that I need answering. Simply put this is your way to communicate to me about event planning. Since I am going to be dealing with the public I need to know what your thinking. So please PLEASE link me to your friends in emails, blogs, tweets, and bulletins and get me LOTS of answers. Ok so are you ready? Here we go!
1. What do you think of when you hear the term “event planner”?
2. Have you ever considered hiring an event planner? If so, please state the type of event you were having.
3. Would you consider hiring an event planner for any event other than a wedding?
4. How much would you expect to pay an event planner? Please specify type of event if it correlates with what you would expect to pay.
I thank everyone in advance and look forward to lots and lots of answers!
