Being an event planner doesn’t require a fancy office, full team of people, or pre-existing clients. Many professional event planners get started by working from home, promoting their services online or via word-of-mouth, and many entrepreneurs who work for themselves enjoy the freedom that working from home offers them.

  2. How to create a plan and map out your goals
  3. What resources you need to get started
  4. Discover how to secure and register your business name and URL
  5. Decide which social media platforms are best for your business
