Update

So things have been pretty busy in Socialize-Land. There have been some exciting developments and weeks that proved a little more than stressful. But all-in-all things have been enjoyable.

The BIG news is that I took Socialize full time in October! When I first got started back in October of 2010, I had a part-time job (read: safety net) planning events for a local non-profit. It was great but wasn’t really leaving me much time for developing my business.

Then, in August of 2011, a friend recommended me for a contract job to plan a large conference. After a few meetings, I landed it! The project requires 20 hours a week for six months (part in their offices and part from home – yay!). So in October, I left my part-time job and started working only under Socialize! The project will end in April/May so keep your fingers crossed that there is enough to keep me busy after that.

In the meantime, I’ve worked with some wonderful brides, put on several corporate events and meetings, helped with a baptism celebration and even did a “Get the Party Started” package. My sister is getting married in May so there’s been a lot of fun planning that with her. And there’s plenty more in the works for 2012!
