Tell me a little bit about how you got started?
We got started by hearing various stories from friends and how they felt something creative was lacking.
Why did you start your Side Business?
ReJeana and I both realized that we enjoyed event planning. As former coworkers at the same law firm, we experiences each other’s work ethic and work style. After discussing several past events hosted and created individually, we decided to join forces.
How long have you been doing this?
How do you make money (Hourly, By Project, Retainer or One Time Fee)?
We make our money by project by project basis. We like to establish an understanding of finances that is beneficial to both parties.
What Areas of Marketing have worked best for you, for instance Referrals, Social Media, etc?
Referrals have worked best for us, but we are slowly building a social media presence.
When do you find the time to work on your side businesses with a full time job and other obligations?
We spend our lunch breaks on conference calls and devote several weekend hours as well as after work hours brainstorming and finalizing projects. We are always open to accept and respond to calls when they are received, staying true to our mantra to provide Instant Results, regardless of the nature.
Did you set any business Goals when you started?
Our main goal has been and is to always provide the best customer service and plan a successful event.
What has been the Best thing that has Happened in your Side Business?
The signed execution agreement! Let the planning begin!
What advice would you give someone just starting out?
We would advise anyone starting out to remain calm during stressful situations, always have a back-up plan and to always think outside the box.
If you were starting all over again, what would you do differently?
We would have joined forces sooner!
How can people find out more about your Business?
People can find out more about us by visiting our website, www.InstantResultsEvents.com and contacting us directly.
Anything exciting coming up that you would like for us to know about?
We are hosting spa party for a coworker’s grand daughter and introducing the young ladies to cute, yet age appropriate pampering sessions. We are looking forward to creating the gift bags that will make any young fashionista proud!
