Kimberly M Watkins
Founder/ Creative Director of The Eventz Team Company, LLC.
I must say that it was not in my plans to start an event collective business. However, after a few people would ask for advice on how to get started or could they shadow me at a few events. I then created and changed my business name to The Eventz Team company in 2014, I began to investigate more into my business and created an Academy for future The Eventz Team members. It's basically everything that I and a few other team members know and learned over the years and still learning in this industry.
Most training or companies will only teach you nothing more the basic of how to planning and design events and not all the important things you actually need to know when setting up your business and building a career with it.
The most important thing to understand as you start your career as an event planner, no one is just going to hire you and then expect you not to know how to plan and perform their events. This means that you must take it upon yourself to learn the basic, the necessary stuff that comes along with it and the business of it before you even begin calling yourself * a certified planner/designer in business or even apply for any entry-level jobs. Before you can become an event planner, you simply have to know what you are doing and not on paper but most know it hands-on!
Easily the most common question I am asked is, "How do I get started became a wedding planner or event planner?" Just to be honest, my answer has changed since the first few years since I’ve been in this industry.
Up until recently, event planning wasn't really considered to be an actual career path. Special events were planned by volunteers and committees with only a few paid positions, and corporate events, and meetings were passed off to the marketing department or an administrative assistant. Of course, weddings mostly planned by friends and family members. But time has really changed for this industry. ( in a great way for us!) - Learn more about Kimberly Passion here.
