Why Be A Special Event Planner?
People often ask me why I have so much passion for being a special event planner. Obviously, this isn’t always the easiest business. Whether you are planning a wedding or considering event décor or live entertainment, there is no doubt that your days can often be long and tiring. However, the fact of the matter is that I feel as my time spent special event planning in Cancun (as well as the other cities in which I have worked) have been some of the most rewarding days of my life.
Here are three of the top reasons why I recommend being a special event planner:
1. You get to be a part of people’s happiest days
Whether you are planning someone’s wedding, graduation, or party, when you are a special event planner, you have the opportunity to be a part of other people’s most cherished memories. Needless to say, this can be very rewarding. You really get a deep sense of satisfaction when you see that you have helped to make other people so happy.
2 You get to see others enjoy your work
With many jobs, there is very little reciprocity involved. You may be creating a product or a service that helps people, but you never have a chance to see them benefit from your efforts. However, when you are a special event planner, you can see others enjoy what you have created. Often you will even have people offer you their heartfelt and sincere thanks.
3. Explore your creativity
If you are a creative person, you likely have found that with most jobs you don’t have a chance to use your imagination. This can actually be very depressing for people that love to create. However, creative people thrive as special event planners. They have the opportunity to conceive of a vision and then bring it to life!
Being a special event planner also gives you the opportunity to be courageous and take risks. Sometimes you will have a bold new idea when it comes to décor, themed events, tents, dance floors, floral arrangements, or a host of other elements. When you are a special event planner, you can take your ideas and run with them!
As you can see, I love my job, and that is why I am so enthusiastic about teaching others to be special event planners as well. If you want to get started learning today about how to be an event planner, click here for more information.
