pic     So I thought, wow, weddings are getting popular, why not become a wedding planner? I did all the research, and then decided the one thing a wedding planner needs that I’m not certain I have is what I call “people energy.”  

It’s not “lunching” and it’s not “schmoozing.” It’s a quality that some women have which is that they simply love to be with other people. Or, more concisely, they are COMFORTABLE with other people.

I can be with other people, I can go to flower shops and talk to the owners and drop off my business card. But okay, it’s not a comfortable thing for me.  

So I’m going to research something else, or else try to get a night job at the police station as a secretary (I know I talk about this all the time, I might at one point actually get up the nerve to do it!)

If any of my Fab40 sisters is indeed comfortable with people and is looking for extra income, I share with you my research on how to become a wedding planner. I hope it helps someone!:

    • I know that you would make an incredible wedding planner! Sounds like fun.

      I was thinking of additional avenues of income for you. Have you ever given thought to offering voice coaching via Skype? You could use is as a compliment to your book. Your target markets could include signing and public speaking markets. Just a thought... I honestly think that you would be awesome at whatever you decide to do!

      Best wishes and keep us posted!

      Mary

    • Suzann.....I directed a wedding once and after it was over I took a vow that day to never do it again!!  LOL The directing and mapping out was not hard...it was dealing with the family that was a nightmare!

    • Mary K - Teaching voice via Skype - what an awesome idea!!! I hadn’t thought of that before. It’s positively brilliant. It might take me a while to get organized (like: what’s a skype?) (only kidding) - but I think you’ve totally hit on it. Thank you!!!

      Mary C. - That would be the problem for me, too, now that you mention it. Very good point!!!

    • I am glad that you liked the Skype vocal coach. I honestly see you making a huge success at it. You might consider writing a blog on voice- speaking and singing so that you can plug your book and your coaching. Contact local community colleges that offer adult noncredit classes for classes/workshops. Also, have business cards made up to hand out and start networking. You may also consider joining linkedin.com.

      I wish you the best luck in the world! Keep me updated!estatic
