Hi My Name is Shirley Trainor and live in Brentwood, California. I have always enjoyed planning events for family and holiday gatherings. After being laid off by my employer after 16 plus years of service, a nephew suggested I do something that I love for my next career. I made the decision to start an Event Planning and Catering company. I researched and began making various attempts to learn what I needed to be a part of the Event Planning and Catering Industries. I have fulfilled some of the goals needed in the area of Catering and now I am working on the Event Planning. I learned about Lovegevity after attending a Catersource Conference. I am enrolled into the course and now learning about planning weddings.
My project 1 Mood Board inspiration came from my Niece. I asked her if she were to get married what kind of wedding would she have? Her response was a "Coming to America." wedding like in the movie that stars Eddie Murphy. When I began this assignment I knew very little about planning a wedding. I had a lot of anxiety from the on sight of looking at all of the information that must be learned. Now that I am passed the anxiety, I am looking forward to learning all that I can about planning weddings, and events to help me make my company a success.
