Is anyone an Event Planner?

i am looking to be an event planner, im getting ready to start schooling for it but i just need some advice from a mom that is doing event planning also. Is there anyone who is an event planner. if so, is it good money? Can you make it your full time job? Can you be a stay at home mom and do it but it not take up so much of your time? i know thats alot to ask i just need some advice on it.

  • I didn't know there was a school for even planning. I was pretty sure you just had to do it and earn a client list. Interesting.

  • Rather than spend money on school, you would be so much better off interning with an event planner. I strongly recommend contacting event planners in your area and having an informational interview with at least two; invite them out for coffee and be prepared with great questions for them. Ask them how they got started and where they think that the industry will be in five years.
