The next six weeks are going to be all about how to start an event design business here on my blog. It will be all the information that I wish someone handed me when I started. Because I had no idea what I was doing. There was a lot of Googling and asking questions and making mistakes and figuring it out. As my business grows, every next step is still filled with questions and mistakes and a lot of trial and error. Each business move in any industry is a scary one backed by a lot of research and learning. From Facebook going public to Beyonce’ launching a surprise album to your favorite restaurant’s new brunch menu to that Etsy shop moving to brick-and-morter, it all took hard work, answered questions, and overcoming obstacles.
My goal with this series is to inspire, motivate, and teach all of you budding event designers how to get started. No, I’m not going to give away ALL of my secrets. But I will tell you the bits that I’ve learned every step of the way that helped me build a company and a brand that I’m proud of and is profitable. It will be the story of what worked for me, which may or not work for you, although I’m hoping it will give you the confidence boost to register your business name, build your website, and start designing.
