Summer is upon us and I’m back to wearing sundresses and flip flops, which is my favorite outfit EVER!
This week I’m flying home for a family reunion and the Event Planning Blueprint team is taking time off to enjoy the summer, catch up on rest and plan the launch of our program How To Be An Event Planner.
I love hearing how people spend their vacation time and since you’re probably taking time off too, I’ll keep this short and sweet.
For the next five weeks we’re going to revisit our most popular event planning blog posts and videos. These are great if you missed an episode or need a refresher.
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 perspective.
Many of you have been reading, watching and commenting for years (thank you! xo), but there are thousands of event planners that are new to our community so this is a good chance for them to learn from our best and most popular event planning blog posts.
