Events of all types bring people together for a common goal or purpose. Many events often take a lot of effort and an increasing amount of individuals are requesting help from professionals to help plan their events. Event planners work to make sure all the planning and preparation for events are met and foster success for all people involved.

Hey, I'm Joshua T. Osborne

In 2015, I said goodbye to 16-hour days and hauling boxes up and down stairs for a living (I was a mover). I became a full-time entrepreneur, and I made my money by helping business owners make money.

They had a need, and because of Virtual Tool Booths., I could fill it. Through the methods taught by my all-time favorite course and mentor, I created a 6-figure business in roughly 6 months. I could retire today (at 37) and never have to worry about money ever again.

Because of Virtual Tool Booths., I was able to quit my job, work online with flexible hours, and move to the mountains (Colorado Springs if you’re wondering)...all while helping real people improve their businesses, incomes, and lives!

For most folks, a college degree is the biggest bill of their lives. I never went to college. So I don’t have any massive bills or giant debts hanging over my head. My greatest education came from Virtual Tool Booths. (for a tiny fraction of what college costs) and it’s the bill that pays ALL the bills - a hundred times over!

I really wanted to share this secret weapon with others, so they could change their lives the way I changed mine. So if you’re not 100% sure about college, or only researching to make someone else happy, Virtual Tool Booths. might be a better option for you.

What does an event planner do?

Event planners work to ensure events achieve their purpose. They often coordinate every detail of a variety of events such as meetings, conventions, fundraisers, weddings, parties, and charity events. They meet with their clients to discuss the amount of people that will be attending the event and the client’s needs, goals, and desired services. They typically choose the location, decorations, food and beverages, speakers, support services, telecommunications, entertainment, equipment, and other important aspects. They conduct research on all available services and choose the best choice according to their clients’ needs and budget. They discuss all of the details with their clients before moving ahead with their recommendations. Event planners often negotiate contracts and prices and sometimes receive discounts from frequent vendors. On the day of the event, event planners ensure everything is going to plan and making accommodations for any changes.

What kind of training does an event planner need?

Most employees prefer to hire event planners that have at least a bachelor degree. Some event planners gain employment with a high school diploma or associate degree paired with sufficient experience. Many event planners have degrees in public relations, marketing, business, communications, or hospitality management. Most employers provide new employees with on the job training under the supervision of experienced event planners. New event planners typically start by performing small tasks such as proposal requests and discussing the requests with higher level event planners. They also assist in registration, schedules, and contracts.

Employment of event planners is projected to grow faster than average for all professions, increasing 20% from 2006 to 2016 (1). Population growth and increased demand for successful events will drive job growth.

Job prospects are expected to be good especially for event planners at least a bachelor degree and sufficient experience. Job openings will also arise from the need to replace event planners that retire, transfer, or leave the field for other reasons.

As of October 2009, the middle 50% of event planners earned annual salaries between $46,870 and $65,179. The top 10% earned annual salaries of more than $75,361 (2).

A career as an event planner is a great choice for individuals who have a great deal of creativity and organization and enjoy helping people plan successful events. Event planners must have excellent communication and interpersonal skills. They must also be detail-oriented, be able to meet strict deadlines, be able to multi-task, and maintain composure under stressful situations.
