Hi, I recently started an event planning company. We make lotion, lip gloss, body spritz etc at parties. As well as set up the decor and cater. So, far the business is doing well we have had eleven parties in less than three months. We do Diva parties, Teen Texting parties, Bridal Showers just to name a few. Most of the parties are done at a local teen center, or in a persons home. I need to buy a lot of the supplies in bulk for it to begin to make a profit. Basically, I can only afford to buy things as each party comes up. I also have some ideas on how I can increase my profit, but it all goes back to having money to do it. I went to the bank and they loved the idea, the presentation and video, but still said no. Even, one of the tellers has called us to book a party. I don't have any credit and I do have some credit issues from a previous marriage. I have applied for everything under the sun and nothing. I can't give up because I have finally found what I am supposed to be doing. I am blown away everytime I do a party and the client is so happy and enjoying the event. The thank you cards and emails are what keeps me searching for a way to keep going. Now, with all the sappy stuff to the side it takes money to run a business. I have reached out to family members and they have helped by donating some items or, giving me free labor for large events. I am open for any ideas anyone has including a loan from Pauly. Just joking! I've brain stormed, and I am out of ideas. Thank you!
