LaKesha’s Lunch with Event Planner Elaina Whitley

Have you ever been to an event and knew there was no event planner involved in the process?  You know those events.. no flow to the timeline… food doesn’t make sense with the event type… no dress code specified… just a hot mess!!

Well… I don’t want you to ever end up in that situation.  Having an event planner in your network is essential unless you have superior organizational skills (I still encourage you to hire someone to help you the day of the event because you want to be free to enjoy yourself and your guests).

Elaina Whitley, CEO and VIP Event Planner at Enjoy Yourself Events, LLC, will join me for lunch to discuss some tips that you can use to plan a fabulous event.  Elaina is not only a great event planner but she also hosts seminars to assist those who are interested in a career as an event planner.
