Project 1 – Blog Submission
My name is Adriana Jimenez. I live in Arlington, TX. I am a wife, a mother and a grandmother. I currently work as a Customer Service Coordinator, but my true calling has always been event planning. I have always loved to design and create centerpieces, and decorations for parties. Planning parties is fun and it will be an exciting career.
I come from a family of creative minds and it has passed on to my daughter who will be my business partner when we launch our wedding and event planning business. She has been taking this course with me and it has been a lot of fun and a great learning experience for both of us. We have always wanted to become Certified Wedding and Event Planners and our dream is finally coming true. It has always been our plan to own a family business. It is something we have been talking about for a long time. Becoming certified planners is a huge stepping stone towards our goal.
Getting started on Project 1 was a challenge for me because most of the course talks about weddings and my Project 1 is not a wedding. I am planning a "Beauty and the Beast" theme Quinceanera. It was hard to get started, but once I put my ideas on paper it was a fun project. It helps me realize how much work it takes to be a professional planner and how much research is involved in putting the perfect event together. Taking this course was the best decision for me. I am finally doing what I have always wanted to do.
