Here's an idea for those who excel at bringing people together and crafting unforgettable experiences: an event organizing business. Simply put, this venture involves planning events - be they weddings, corporate conferences, or intimate family celebrations - down to the last, memorable detail.
It's the ideal line of work for individuals who have a knack for multitasking, negotiating, and curating aesthetic elements. With each event you plan, you not only construct a tangible experience but also create delighting memories for your clients.
An event organizing business does not necessitate an enormous initial investment. It does demand keen attention to detail, tireless energy, and a skill for juggling diverse tasks. And the payoff? The satisfaction of making dreams come true and the chance to shape unforgettable moments.
But while it is rewarding, this business is not for the faint-hearted. It requires a resilient spirit, ready to face unforeseen challenges around every corner. But fear not, these challenges are nothing but stepping stones paving your path to mastery in event management.
Here are some real life success stories of starting a event organizing business:
1. SinOficina ($36K/year)
Bosco Soler (from ) started SinOficina about 5 years ago.
Hi guys! My name is Bosco Soler and I'm the founder and only FTE employee of SinOficina: the first online coworking for the Spanish speaking community of freelancers and entrepreneurs.
What it started as a need to solve my own isolation as a freelance a year and a half ago, became a subscription model business that is now my main source of income making $3K/mo without spending a dollar (or euro) on paid advertisement.
2. Entire Productions ($1.3M/year)
Natasha Miller (from San Francisco, California, USA) started Entire Productions over 22 years ago.
I’m Natasha Miller- raised in Des Moines, Iowa but high-tailed it out of there as soon as I could at the age of 23. I thought I’d be a performer only - a classical violinist and jazz vocalist, but as it turns out those careers might have been the catalyst for where I am today.
