It’s time for OUR change!

Support The Movement, financial literacy

 

In 2007 the bottom began to noticeably fall out of the real estate market and in 2008 the stock market crumbled taking the futures of hardworking American families.  From that to 2009 the country has slid into a full blown recession and some of the highest unemployment numbers in 30 years.  As we all know, recession is a word everyone refuses to say and hates to hear it even more.

With the recession thousands of jobs were lost, millions of hard working families have gone into foreclosure, retirees lost their entire life’s savings and across the country we saw more and more “Going out of business” signs hanging on businesses that have faithfully supported many communities for years.  We, as a country have been left wondering what was going to happen next.  We watched the news day after day to hear that the government was giving “TARP” and “bail out” money to “big banks”.

But where is the bail out for those that have sacrificed and poured their sweat, blood and tears into building a comfortable future?

Where is the bail out for those that are working double time to keep up with the rising pain at the pump, 50% utility hikes, ever shrinking funds for ever increasing grocery costs and overpriced healthcare expenses? 

PASS IT ON!

Well It’s About Time!

Enjoy Your Day…

delegation wedding event helper planner

http://wordofmouthevents.weebly.com/blog/enjoy-yourday

On your Big Day, your Wedding Day, (or other special occasion) you should not have any disruptions that take you away from enjoying yourself, your future spouse, your family and friends. With this thought in mind I have a few suggestions to help make your Day a much more enjoyable experience.

First Suggestion – Put Someone Else In Charge (The Step-In)

I realize this can be a difficult suggestion to follow for some people but please trust that it will make a world of difference to have someone else in charge for a short amount of time.  Now, to insure that this is a positive difference, this person is not just someone attending the wedding or your second cousin twice removed who really wants to help, this person is someone you trust to make decisions, they know you, your likes and dislikes and they understand when you would say yes or no.  Remember they are there to help so try to pick someone you get along with and can effectively deal with other people and possible difficult situations.  Their job is to take care of any situations that may arise on your Wedding day, situations that the Wedding Planner, Caterer, or Hotel Manager might ask you about are now handled by your Step-In. It has to be understood that the Step-In now speaks for you and what they say goes.  You should not hear about any problems till after the wedding, preferably after the honeymoon or longer if you can take not knowing.  Here’s the bottom line, things happen, people bring an extra guest, did not tell you they are now vegetarian for some unexplained reason or the they can’t sit next to Aunt Anne because it “may start something”.  Remember whatever the problem the Step-In can take care of it and you can hear about it later – Enjoy Your Day (and remember to give a big Thank You to your Step-In)…

”We look forward to earning your business.”

Is There a Place For You as an Event Planner?

DefaultRGB

By: Pharice Brown

There are two markets for events, corporate and social.  Corporate can also include charities and nonprofit organizations.  Because these entities seek to increase their visibility they utilize special events to increase their consumers and contributors.

What Does an Event Planner ‘Really” Do?

different-types-of-event-planners

By: Pharice Brown

If you read our post ‘What is Event Planning?’ you now have an idea of what an event is and a short list of the types of functions that are considered events.  It is important to say that, being an event planner is no easy job and can require evenings, late nights, weekends, and holidays.  Because you will be contacting other businesses there are going to be a lot of work to be done during what are considered core business hours.  The amount of time, and when, you have to commit will be based on your specialty and type of event.

Budget – Everything Has a Price

Everything Has a Price

So you want to know what’s included in a budget.   Everything.  Meeting and events cost money.  Make a list of every anticipated expense as well as; all revenues.

dollar-sign

 

 

 

This is a list of items found in budgets:

 

 

 

 

* Labor                                                 * Venue                               * Travel

* Insurance                                        * Merchandise                  * Marketing/Promotion

* Planning System                          * Printing                             * Food/Beverage

* Decorations                                   * Entertainment               * Speaking Fees

* Attire                                                * Salary                                 * Flowers

* Gifts                                                   * Awards                             * Administrative Fees

* Give-A-Ways                                   * Security                            * Photographer

* Credit Card Fees                             * Tickets                              * Phone

* Wi Fi                                                  * Gas/Mileage                  * Website

The list goes on and on.  Items on this list can be broken down into line items.  Some will be grouped together and others will be their own category.  When developing keep the current industry trends in mind and their costs.  Think about how they will impact your budget and look for comparable substitutions.  Trends are easy to spot and if you’re not sure take a look at social media sites, TV and your industry trade magazines for more information.

In today’s fast paced information track most event organizers use online registration which is a trend that can also impact your bottom line.  You may also want to offer paper registration by request.  Now that you know what is included in your budget you can effectively begin to organize your financial outline.

… Happy budgeting
