Oh to be a kid again.
School ends and the days get longer.
Ahh, summer is my favorite time of year. Does anyone else love living in a sundress?
As I’m writing to you, the Toronto humidity is starting to settle in and the sun is shining through a few clouds.
So before I break out my flip-flops and take a few days off, we’ve still got some work to do.
For me, summer is a time to rejuvenate, enjoy a few bike rides and time at the lake, and clean up loose ends before we announce our two new programs.
That’s why I decided to do something different this year.
For four weeks in July, we’re going to focus on revisiting a post or video from EventPlanning BlueprintTV.
As long as you’re on the email list (if you’re not — sign up now!), you’ll know which topic I’m sending and why.
Event Planning Training Programs
Of course, I’ll be with you in the comment section each Wednesday for some real-time discussions.
Here’s why we’re doing this.
1. There are some great articles and EventPlanning BlueprintTV episodes that you may have missed.
Many of you have been reading, watching and commenting for years (thank you!), but there are so many event planners that are new to our community.
So this is your chance to catch up and/or refresh your memory!
2. I’ve chosen pieces to help you refresh and review where you’re at with your event planning business so you can rock it.
It doesn’t matter how many articles or episodes you’ve read or seen, it’s great to watch or read them again and listen from a different point of view.
For me, the summer always sparks new ideas and increased energy to get things done.OK, so let’s do it…
