First Paid Event!

Unread post by lalovely »

I am so excited and NERVOUS!!! I was offered my first paid job yesterday. I will be planning and open house for a new business/school. I've done several parties for family and friends but nothing professionally! Any tips would really help me out, i am having a hard time deciding on what to charge,i know i don't want to do hourly! I am so NERVOUS!!!!

Congratulations!! The only advice I can give you is take your time, pay attention to details and listen to the client. Use your course guides as reference. You will do fine.

I hope it all went well in the end. If you're still planning, I think that once you start writing down details and getting busy, your confidence will increase and you'll be able to work out the charging method to suit what you're doing.

Good luck!
