(Future office inspiration via Domino)
I quit my job today. For real. I was shaking all morning, trying to find the words to say, browsing blogs, when I found this from one of my favorite blogs, I Suwannee. It was exactly what I needed to get me out of my chair and talk to my boss.
I turned in my resignation letter to my boss and left a good paying job with health benefits and paid time off to start my own business. I never thought I would be scared, but after I did it, I freaked out a little bit. Thank goodness I have a husband that can pay the bills, but beyond that, I still can't believe that I finally found the nerve to do so. I really love planning weddings, which is what I do now, but I want to do it on a more extended, intricate level with clients instead of just selling the venue and the food and beverage aspect. It is such a passion of mine and I'm so excited but scared all at the same time.
I'm really lucky because I already have clients for the Fall. I'm really lucky because I have vendors that want to work with me and recommend me. I'm really lucky because I have great friends and a family that supports me and may even help me for free if need be. (I pay in champagne and chocolate for girls, scotch and cigars for the boys)
I'll be on the island until the end of July, seeing all of my summer brides through their receptions. In the meantime, if you or anyone you know want to get into event planning,let me know! If you know anyone that needs a wedding planner, you can let me know too!
