This is one of my favorite topics and I could spend hours talking about how to start an event planning business.

There’s nothing I love more than to see people turn their passion into profit and fulfill their dream of being their own boss.

I’ve seen (and helped) many leave the 9-5 grind and say good-bye to their boss and uninteresting work.

I’m blessed to be one of those people, but it didn’t happen overnight and there is a lot to learn.

Are you doing everything you can to start an event planning business? Are you stuck because you feel you lack business experience or maybe even event planning experience?

I’ve seen it again and again – event planners dream about starting their event planning business, maybe they attend a business seminar to lay the groundwork they need to get started, but then they never take action!

And truth be told, it’s not just in the event planning business that this happens but rather in any type of business.

If you’re waiting for the perfect time, the perfect business name, clients to fall in your lap…stop it! Feeling intimidated is normal, but it’s not very fulfilling.

4 Steps to Start An Event Planning Business

If you’re feeling stuck, follow these 4 steps:

  1. Define your business. Get specific about the types of events you specialize in, who your clients are, your break-even point and how much you’ll charge.
  2. Get started right now. Don’t wait until the 1st of the month or the beginning of the year. Don’t waste more time; get started right away.
  3. Share your intentions with everyone you know and ask them if they can refer you and to spread the word about your business.
  4. Everyday write down 1-3 action items you’ll take to move your business forward.
Many event planners start an event planning business at home to keep costs low but that requires discipline. Planning any event takes time so it’s important to set up your work space so there are few distractions and so you can concentrate.
