I love how the universe provides 95% of what I need right when I need it. Lately, I've really been soul searching about my job and working in corporate America. I've always known that I could only work for The Man for so long. Luckily, The Man I'm working for is fucking awesome and provides me with free food, trips, and amazing opportunities. I am blessed - I know this and respect it. However, I've always wanted to be an entrepreneur. I'm a know-it-all Virgo who likes to get shit done. Corporate America is not for me. There's too much red tape, too much politics, and I'm just not good at playing the game. I never have been. I am a hard-worker, but I don't know how to schmooze or talk myself up. I just don't work like that. Call me if you want your shit done the right way. Don't call me if you want to shoot the shit or stand around patting each other on the back. I don't roll that way.
Lately, I've also been having some money issues. Nothing crazy and I'm going to be fine, but my pockets are a little lighter than I'd like. I've been brainstorming how to make cash and after ruling out several options (selling plasma and/or eggs, research experiments, taking surveys), I've decided that I want to get into Day of Wedding Coordination. It uses my skills as an event planner, it's basically a one-day gig, and bitches are making like $1000 a day! Yes, please. Plus, it will help me further my goals of running my own wedding planning business someday. I've been thinking about this for about a month, but I wasn't really sure how to break into it. Then, while I was on vacation, I got an email from a girl I took sex ed class with and she was looking for some tips on finding a wedding coordinator for the day of her wedding.
Naturally, I was on that shit like white on rice and now I will have my first wedding job next year! I am SO beyond stoked. It's the perfect kick in the ass from the universe to get me started. I need to start building a website, come up with a brand and a name, and hopefully get even more clientele. I am really excited about this because I think it could be my way out. I love my current employer. I'm obsessed with the company and tech and I've totally drank the Kool-Aid. I honestly don't think I could work anywhere else, which is why I know that my next move is up and out. I'm going to get my promotion, get my manager title, and then I'm going to start my own business. Wedding planning and event consulting. I have never been more excited in my life!
