Event Planning Business Plans
I actually found the opposite in terms of discipline – it is actually hard to switch off and working from home can fudge your work-life balance as the lines are blurred between the two.Whether you struggle to focus or struggle to switch off though discipline has to be key!Others just don’t seem able to imagine the realities of working from a home base and I have been quizzed and insulted in equal measures by people trying to understand the intricacies of working from home!This post is designed to be the ultimate event planning startup kit, for anyone wanting to start their own event management company.Starting from home gives a new business the best possible start during those important early months.Commuting to work every day can be time-consuming and stressful in terms of both time and travel expenses, and is a part of the day that fills many with dread.
I find that many of our clients prefer us to travel to their offices to meet but if you ever need a space to meet and your home office isn’t large enough/suitable enough there are plenty of coffee shops, hotels and meeting places which offer a convenient place to meet face to face - so this need never be a concern.
Furthermore, in my experience running your own business keeps you busy, busy, busy.
Organizing events is a time-consuming operation and organizing events and running your own business doesn’t give any time for slacking!
Furthermore, our regular clients increasingly wanted us to hold some of their materials and branded items between events which put a further strain on storage space.
When event boxes of literature started taking over the lounge every time we had delegate folders to collate ahead of an event we realized it was time to move to a more purpose-built office solution.
