Event Organizer Start-Up Business

Are you the social butterfly at events?  Are you an extraverted party person?


This might be the perfect business for you!

Someone has to organize any even that happens -- small kids birthday parties to larger community events.  Someone had to figure out how much food and drink might be required and where the event is held, and many more details.  That person is an Event Planner.

Like any of the small business ideas I feature here, there are many options for Even Planners. You can choose to market yuor business anyway you choose. For example:

  • Birthday parties for kids
  • Events for senior citizens only
  • Weddings
  • Community events
  • Look around you at the event in your local newspaper and find your niche market.

Once you find a niche, you would choose a few different offers. If you ran Childrens Birthday Parties as an event planner, you might find a local clown, costume shop for updated hero and princess costumes, fun games and party favors and all the rest.

You'd totally focus on this one type of event planning so that you become the BEST around -- and you are known for Kids Birthday Parties in your community.

You might even partner with another boomer friend --- split up all the jobs based on who does what best, and go from there! You'll have FUN!
