Do you remember my post about GRADUATING from a course I took?
I am so excited for the opportunity to work with CHELSEY on an event. She was the event planner for Jordan & Bubba Page’s (Fun Cheap or Free) Summer Soiree. The Soiree is an event they put on for local (Utah) influencers to come and meet other and work on collaborating with people.
I let Chelsey know that I was willing to help with whatever she needed, and I LEARNED SO MUCH! Chelsey taught me how to mind-map my events. Seeing the back end of how she runs events was life changing for me. Working so close to the creator of the event showed me the nitty gritty details.
- You will always need more transportation: We had one limo to drive the guests from the parking lot to the party. It took nearly 2 hours to get everyone there. After the party was over I helped transport with my van and it took 1.5 hours.
- Don’t put the blade of the box cutter up until you are READY to use it: My thumb is still sore. It was a lot of blood. But Jordan has 6 (soon to be 8!) kids which means she has lots of bandaids to choose from!
- Have a list: for EVERYTHING. It helped to have something to refer to. It made it so we could see what needed to be done next, or if we could move stuff around.
- Name Tags: for everyone helping out. That way you can always call someone by name. Even if you haven’t met them before.
I am so excited for all the things coming up in my future! And I can’t wait to share more with you about it all. This isn’t my last BIG event, and it was perfect as my first!
