just wanted to say a quick hello! I am supposed to receive my study materials tomorrow, and I am so excited. I am a mom of three small boys, and I have a degree in Anthropology. I have always loved decorating and organizing. I thought long and hard about what would make me happy as far as job wise. Then I went to a friends wedding. She is a close friend, and she was so stressed while planning it. She brought her finance over here from Europe so on top of the paper work, having to work full time, and she found out she was pregnant, it was really hard to plan an event. I realized that I want to be able to help ease that burden and let brides, grooms, and families stress less and enjoy the event more. I guess this is true of all events. I think even though the job is demanding and probably quite stressful at times, I believe that it will make me happy. Also I hope it will allow for a decent income.
Why are you guys taking this course? What are your plans? I am just trying to get others insight, and hopefully some helpful advice.
