Many event planners start an event management business from home because it’s cost effective.

When you’re getting started, there are many things to do, learn and do.

To-Do List

Before making headway and preparing your list of things to do to start an event management business from home, it’s important to know why you want to be in business in the first place.

There are many reasons why event planners start their own business. Some believe they’ll make more money if they’re in business for themselves, some want to leave a job they don’t like, and some see a gap in the marketplace that they want to fill.

No matter what your reason(s), it’s important to understand why you want to start an event management business and whether or not you are doing it for the right reasons.

    Hi Melanie,

    My main aim for registering for this event planning course is to start my business at home when I retired. My main focus is rental and decorating for weddings and parties which i truly enjoy.
    I have tried decorating for friends and family and because of the comments I think that might be a good start. I am going through the modules and found it quite an eye opener, still trying to find some time to do my worksheets but I am getting there. This topic really assisted me moving forward.
