Things have been a little hectic lately which is why I haven’t written a blog post in about a week. I have been doing a lot of research online and in the books I found at the local library. Some pretty interesting stuff I must say. 🙂
However, I am very excited to announce that I have a new partner for Simply Sparkled Events. Meet Stephen Barnes!
Stephen and I have been best friends for four years and are basically a real life Will & Grace. We met while we were both attending East Tennessee State University. He was a Biology major while I was a Mass Communications major. We have backpacked through Europe together, road-tripped to many cool places in the US and are currently roommates in the awesome city of Las Vegas. Our hobbies include eating tacos, napping, quoting “Titanic” and talking about boys.
After a discussion over some very cheap coffee (because that is what adults do right?), he told me he was very interested in joining me on this business venture and I was very excited to hear this. It will make things a lot less difficult when it comes to finances. He has an extensive business background and is very good when it comes to design. He will definitely be an asset for sure.
We are currently at 246 days until we officially want to launch. That means 246 more days of learning, growing and researching. A lot needs to be done by then but I am nonetheless excited.
I landed a serving job this week to help bring in some extra income to help with the cost of marketing materials and such. I am also hoping to attend some bridal conventions that will be coming to Vegas in August and October, and I found out the hard way that those are not cheap. We gotta work for what we want though right? Yes!
Thank you for taking the time to read my posts and follow me along this journey of mine. I hope to inspire someone out there that is thinking of doing the same.
Keep sparkling my loves!
Until next time
