Thank you for visiting my blog! When I was in college studying finance, a career advisor told me that I should be a party planner. I laughed and asked her if she knew how much tuition was those days and went on my merry way into investment banking then private equity. Just as I was hitting my stride with a promotion to vice president and working on deals in the nine digit range, I was thrown off course with a cancer diagnosis. Two and a half years later, three surgeries, I don’t want to know how many treatments/appointments/tests, and a baby later and I’ve decided to go back to my roots. I joke that finance and numbers are in my blood – both parents work in the accounting and finance fields – but parties and pretty things are my passion.
I don’t have the energy or income that I used to so I have had to become more resourceful and efficient in how I put together parties. Hopefully some of the things that I have learned along the way can be helpful to you!
