I’m fresh off my first experience at World Education Congress, an event industry conference put on by Meeting Professionals International. As a member of MPI and a board member of my local chapter, I’m an active and involved contributor. After seeing the global reach and impact of the organization at WEC 2019, I care about our community more than ever. This comes down to more than just my learnings over the past week.
It’s official – I’m giving it a shot.
I’ve quit my day job and I’m pursuing running my own event planning company full-time, at least for now. It was kind of a crazy decision to make, but I just really felt that I needed to try this. Maybe it won’t work and I’ll end up going crawling back to the corporate or nonprofit world… but at least in that case I’ll have tried.
