Falling Into Place

Published March 8, 2017 by lynn k scott

Just the other day I was longing to get back into wedding and event planning.  I’m truly over the 9 to 5 job.  Ok, so I work 7:00-4:00, but you get my meaning.

I responded to an ad looking for an unpaid intern for a wedding planner. While many people would balk at the term, “unpaid”, I don’t mind.  It’s true, I’m a certified wedding planner.  It’s true, I’ve planned and executed a few events. It’s true, I still have a lot I can learn.

The problem is, as I’ve been out of touch with the hospitality industry, I need a new “in’. I need to reconnect with vendors, venues and work events again.  I am actually looking forward to seeing what this event planner is offering.  I’m sure I can learn a lot from her.  I like the fact she also used to work in the corporate world.  She’s been the catering director for a prestigious San Francisco hotel and she’s now her own boss and running her own event company.

The position could eventually turn into a paid position as her assistant.  As her business grows, so could the opportunities.  I am also looking forward to her marketing concepts.  It may seem small, but to stay in business, you need clients.  Knowing how to get your name out and get people calling you is truly a skill.  I’ve done so-so on my own, but I’d welcome assistance in this aspect as well.

Later this week, we will meet for coffee and discuss her vision for her company and how I may be of assistance to her. I can’t afford to leave my day job yet, however, who knows if this will be the door that opportunity is knocking on.  All I know, is I am answering that door and looking forward to seeing what’s on the other side.
