START AN
EVENT BUSINESS YOU LOVE
DON’T JUST DREAM ABOUT STARTING YOUR EVENT BUSINESS.  DO IT TODAY!
LET'S BE REAL...
You know you’re good at planning events.  


Your family and friends tell you what incredible planning talents you have.

But, as talented as you are, and as much as you want to start your event business and thrive financially…you just don't know how to consistently find event clients let alone offer them the value you know you can provide them.

Sure you could spend hours and hours networking, hoping that clients will fall into your lap after meeting once at an event.

But we both know that what’s really going to get you to where you want to be, is learning how to get your event business up and running so you can offer value and so you’re clear about what event services you offer when you meet clients.
HERE'S THE TRUTH:
You know you’re stuck and don’t know what the next step is to move your event business forward.

You’re consuming a ton of information, but you don’t have a clear path forward that you’re sure of. 

Maybe you fear what your friends and family will think or say? 

Perhaps you’re scared of failing or getting your event business registered only to struggle to find paying clients and build a sustainable business? 
Yet despite your worries and fears, you love planning events and know that having the freedom to make money on your terms and run your own event planning business is exactly what you want.
Yeah, you could continue researching information or attending networking events to magically have clients fall into your lap.

Or you could get to the heart of your event business and create value that clients can’t ignore. 

Hi, I’m Melanie!

I totally get it; I struggled with the same thoughts.

With a college degree, numerous certifications, 100s of hours of marketing training, frustration doesn’t begin to describe what I was feeling!
I almost gave up on my event planning business altogether. Like many people, I dreamed of having a SUCCESSFUL event planning business. 
I read books and blogs, watched webinars and took courses, hoping the clients and the money would fall from the sky!
Thousands of dollars later I still had nothing to show for it because most of the courses told me what to do but not HOW to do it. 
That’s when I made a change and put what I learned into ACTION.
…I went on to sharpen my event and business skill set, worked with Hollywood celebrities and International brands, and have helped thousands of event planners, like you, with programs like Success Academy.

So, believe me when I say, Success Academy is packed and teaches you everything you need to know in order to launch your event business – the right way.

Success Academy is an 8-week training program for event planners that want to learn what steps you need to start your event business, how to stand out in a competitive market and how to be profitable.

It’s chock full of everything I’ve learnt from starting businesses, being a successful event planner, and working with the world’s top entrepreneurs. All packed into a simple, step-by-step course that you can use to start your event business.
Hi, I’m Sandra!

I wasn’t always an entrepreneur. For years I worked in government, which left me unfulfilled and feeling trapped. I moved around a lot, trying to find the job that would “click” but it never came. I wanted out, but didn’t really know where to turn…

Eventually I was offered a contract doing management consulting overseas. Travel… adventure… naturally, I jumped at the opportunity! For a couple of years, the change of scenery felt great. But I was still working for somebody else… doing stuff I didn’t really love. That same old feeling of discontent starting to sink in.

I headed home for Christmas one year and ran into my old high school sweetheart. We fell in love all over again, and when the time came for me to leave, I just couldn’t do it. Instead, I stayed and finally set about building my dream business.
As a mid-life entrepreneur, I had to really learn about business. Nothing in my background had prepared me for this. And so I set about researching and studying how to start and grow a successful business success, methodically. And applying everything I learned.
Of course I made mistakes along the way, and some of them were quite costly. But ultimately, it worked!

Once I cracked the code, I was hooked.

Since those early days, I’ve worked with dozens and dozens of new entrepreneurs and business owners in the start-up phase.
I’m really excited to share everything I’ve learned and experienced with event planners who are at a point in their lives where they’re dreaming of something different. And ready to take a risk. Because I’ve been there. And I’ve made it to the other side, one step at a time.
"Success Academy gave me step-by-step guidance and, since registering, I have created a business plan, registered my business, worked with a graphic designer on branding and a logo, figured out my pricing structure, and created a marketing plan. In just 3 months, I am further ahead in my business than I would have been without the program."

"I had a plan on where I wanted to take my business, but I didn’t know how to get there. Success Academy was my guide and gave me the steps I needed to get the clients I wanted. Learning from Melanie and Sandra was fantastic and I know I chose the right program!"
— Monica Kadange
Melbourne, Australia
"The sales and marketing training, along with the Q&A webinars were a highlight for me. I loved that we could share real-life experiences and had accountability in Success Academy."

FAQs
Q. Will it work? 
If you're currently listening to an internal monologue that's looping over and over and sounding a little like this: "Will it work? Is it the right program for me? What if I fail? How is this really different from everything else I’ve tried?" it's time for a breather.

The investment you’re about to make in Success Academy is really an investment in you: in your self-belief, mindset and your potential.

 We can't categorically promise that this program will work for you or the level of results you will get – only you have control over that. What we can promise is that, what we teach in this program has worked for us personally and hundreds of people who we've worked with. What did we all have in common? We committed fully, invested time and energy and didn't sit around waiting for the success to come. We know you can do that too!
Q. When Does Success Academy Start?
We know you’re busy that’s why we give you LIFETIME ACCESS to Success Academy so you can learn at your own pace and on your own time. Each module is there for you when you’re ready for it, and we release one module each week for the duration of the program. 

Each week we’ll have live webinars to help guide you through the material, share expert tips and strategies and give you the opportunity to ask questions. If you can’t make a class, we’ll record it for you and put it in the members' area. This course includes videos, live webinars, and exercise sheets that you can download.

  In 2017, registration for Success Academy opens September 14th and the course begins October 3rd.
Q. I'm really busy. How much time will I have to invest to get results?
The greater the amount of time you spend, the better your results are likely to be. Getting a business off the ground isn't all sunshine and rainbows and it's easy to get discouraged in those early days when you feel like you're pouring so much of yourself into the business and perhaps only seeing a very small return. But here's the real truth: in order to have what you desire tomorrow, you have to commit to taking action today.
Q. Do I get access to the entire program at once? 
No. Success Academy is designed so you complete weekly modules with live, corresponding webinars to further enhance your learning experience and provide you with the opportunity to ask questions based on that week’s training. This is a proven system to follow and allows you the best outcome and success in the program.

 When you complete Success Academy, you get lifetime access and can re-visit the entire program and all the modules in any order and whenever you’d like. 
For the October, 2017 Success Academy program, the program runs as followed:






Week of October 3 – Get Down to Business and Q&A Webinar 
Week of October 10 – Creating Value and Q&A Webinar
Week of October 17 – Marketing and Q&A Webinar
Week of October 24 – Q&A Webinar, Implementation week  - Take Action!

Q. I'm just not sure I’m ready to make the investment...
We totally get how investing in yourself can feel challenging, especially if you've already invested a decent amount of money in your business already. And when you're still waiting to see a return on the money you've already spent, it’s hard to see something and know it could make a massive difference if only the money issue wasn’t in the way.

But here's the thing.

Success Academy will shorten the traditional start-up timeline and lower the learning hurdles in more ways than you thought possible.  Check payment options.

Just think of all the money you've already invested in programs, courses and coaching sessions that haven't yet given you what you really need: to feel confident that you're setting your business up the right way and know step-by-step actions how to land clients who trust you with their big event.
Q. Will Success Academy be offered again?
If you want to start your own event planning business and you want to join Success Academy, do it today. You are always going to be busy and doubt and fear can stop you from feeling ‘ready’, but there’s never a perfect time. 

If you’re really not sure, Success Academy opens twice a year.
Q. What if I find the program isn't for me? Can I get a refund?
We know that if you implement what you learn in this program you will have everything you need to catapult your events business forward. 

These are the tried and tested strategies that we've used to get our very own businesses off the ground with nothing more than a stack of business cards and $500 to get started.

That said, if Success Academy doesn't meet your expectations in any way within the first 14 days, simply send us an email to info@eventplanningblueprint.com and we'll issue a full refund.
