Corporate and Special Event Planning

A Full Week In

A Full Week In
Well today is Saturday, my second Saturday as a full time event planner. The other day I was saying to someone that I don’t know how I did everything before. I am so busy doing just event planning I can’t imagine how I fit in anything else. 
I have realized the biggest difference is that I now have time for myself. The time I used to spend working…catching up…on ITM was the time I now spend on me. I have most evenings to myself and I have time on weekends to just relax.
Today I spent a good part of the day working but I am at home and relaxed. I am not freaking out trying to get everything done all at the same time. Instead I am doing one job at a time.
I am not going to lie and say that I am not still freaking out a bit about the financial side of it but I try to not think too much about it. I don’t want it to ruin what I have going on here. 
I remember ages ago, we were at a trade show I think, and we had this woman come up to us and talk to me about her interior design business. It was one of those weird “did that really happen” type of moments. She kind of appeared out of nowhere then disappeared just as quickly. She specifically wanted me to know that all I had to think about was “getting one more job”. I don’t need to worry about having a ton or work lined up, just one more. So that is my focus, just pushing to get one. And each of those will make the financial part that I am worried about happen. 
I got this baby. 
Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone!
