What I’d recommend in that case is go out and volunteer at different organizations, whether they’re nonprofits or other organizations where you can get that experience, maybe even with event planners.Some event planners are not open to taking on interns. You’re going to find one that is, if that’s what you’re interested in, and it might take a little while, but go out and get some experience.
So first of all, I’m Melanie from Event Planning Blueprint, and welcome if you are just joining us for the first time.
You can even get experience through florists or caterers.
You don’t have to just stick to event planners, but it’ll give you different experiences so you can really decide what kind of events you want to plan, which will go a long way when you start your event planning business, because it’s going to make it a lot easier to figure out what clients you want to focus on.
Gina says, “Okay, I can hear you now.” Awesome, I’m glad you can hear. I think you’ve been on a few times, Monique, have you not? I can’t see your face unfortunately with the webinar, but I’m pretty good with faces. It is a very nice view and it’s surprising because being in Canada, you expect a lot of snow and cold, but we’ve had a very lovely winter this year, and it’s quite nice out. It is a really nice view, and it’s really nice especially when it’s warm and sunny out.
If you’re joining us for the first time, the 10 time, welcome and thank you so much for joining me on this webinar and Periscope. Do you have your first client or you’ve got all the pieces in place but you don’t have your first client yet. Norma from California – Norma is in our program called “,” which is going on right now. So this is my downtown view, and I don’t know if you can see it, but I know you can on the webinar, but I don’t think you can actually see the CN Tower, and if I move everything, it’ll mess it all up, so next time on Periscope, I’ll more of a 360 view for you, and you can get a better view of what I look at every day, so thank you. Monique has done some volunteer work with the Marine Corps.
