I can remember being a senior in high school, not really having any clue what I wanted to do with my career. I selected a local college, majoring in Criminal Justice and minoring in Spanish. I woke up for my classes every day, never really feeling motivated or interested in the material I was learning. After a year and a half in a major I hated, I decided I should take a break from college to focus on my work experience, and to figure out my passions. It didn't take long for me to figure out how much I loved working with people, and through planning my own wedding, the events leading up to it, and other parties for family and friends, I discovered my true passion was in wedding and event planning. I researched schools and programs endlessly, wanting to ensure I chose the perfect one to give me an edge in the industry.
I was reading a blog about the topic when I came across the link for The Wedding Planning Institute by Lovegevity. After yet more research, and with the guiding and supportive hand of my husband, I enrolled in the courses with Lovegevity, and I can honestly say I could not have made a better decision with where to further my education. Lovegevity gave me so much more than just the knowledge of the industry. I wasn't just majoring in Wedding and Event Planning; I also majored in Social Media Marketing, Business, and even got a glance into Legal processes. This program has already given me an edge unlike any other, at a time where there is an amazing market opportunity for my business.
If you would have told me three years ago that I would be getting my certification in Wedding and Event Planning and starting my own business, I would have walked away in disbelief. Now, I have the strength, confidence, and knowledge to take me further than I ever would have dreamed, in a field I could not be more passionate or in love with. Thank you, Lovegevity, for helping me find my way when I had no direction, and for giving me the knowledge and skills to build my dream career!
