I'm Jody-Ann, the Event Business Growth Expert behind this company.

I empower Event and Wedding Planners to build, launch and grow their event planning business, so they can book more clients and create a life they love.

I would love to tell you that I've had an easy journey and discovered my passion for entrepreneurship and event planning at a lemonade stand when I was 7 years old, but I would be lying. Here's how it really happened...

OK, back to our regular programming! 

Before I started planning events for major clients, I use to plan events for friends and family for free. I was excited about event planning and eager to get started in the industry, however I did not know where to begin. I had graduated from university with a shiny new degree in Economics and no idea what to do with it. After searching tirelessly for a job that was appealing to me I finally accepted a job in administration at a major university to fill my time.

It was here that I accidentally fell into a job as an in-house event planner. Though I loved my new job, I always knew in my heart I wanted to do more. So I started to work on my event planning business part-time on evenings and weekends. But this time around instead of focusing on events for family and friends, I began tirelessly marketing my services to PAYING clients and what a difference this change made!

I love event planning because of the creativity of the profession, the flexibility and freedom of running your own event planning business, all while doing something you're passionate about. 



Just what I needed!

Jody-Ann's course was exactly what I needed! It was detailed nicely, the attachments (budget forms, evaluation forms, etc.) are very helpful and I will be using them with my next client. I am confident that my business will grow with what I've learned in this course. 

Whether you're just starting out with your business, or have a business already up and running, the strategies and methods I used to grow my business will work for you!

I'm here to give you the help you need to set up your systems, share the shortcuts I know, empower you to improve your business strategies and show you how to build an event planning business that grows while you sleep!
