There are several avenues to explore when deciding if this is the right career path for you. That’s because there are so many different types of events that can be planned, leaving endless possibilities. That’s a great thing because it leaves the door open to new opportunities!
If you want to know how to get started in event planning, the first step is simple… you have to start with yourself. Think about what kind of events you have attended and what you enjoyed the most about them. Was it the theme or type of event? Also, think about your own passion. What inspires you and gets your creative juices flowing?
Maybe you’ve planned your own events, everything from dinner parties to birthday parties. I’m sure you remember the satisfaction that you felt of the end result. What event did you most enjoy planning and what aspect of it? Answers to those questions can give you a sense of direction.
There isn’t a quick and easy catch-all answer on how to get started in event planning, though. A lot depends on you and what you can bring to an event.
Not one single event type is good for every event planner. Some may be good at planning weddings, while you may be better at planning a different venue.
For example, if planning weddings isn’t something that interests you, there are plenty of other opportunities to pursue. You may find parties, corporate events or charity fundraisers ignite that passion you need to be a successful event planner. Simply put, you don’t have to be an event planner for every type of event to hang your shingle for your event planning business.
Being an event planner is a very satisfying and fulfilling career. You just have to be honest with yourself about what types of events you’re going to enjoy planning before you get started.
