I highly recommend this book to anyone who is considering a career in the event planning industry. The author, Jill Moran, shares so much information with her readers - more than most "how to" instructors. I was so pleased with the way she mapped out the entire process. She's very thorough; it's plain to see that she's an industry expert. She also cites many excellent resources for those who are new to event planning. I am very satisfied with this investment. It will serve as a terrific reference tool as I take steps to launch my own business.
Moran does not sugar coat the event planning business. If you are serious about making it your career, she has provided a road map. It isn't for the fainthearted, but it is do-able with perserverance.
As an event planner, I found this book extremely helpful with planning my business. It gave great tips and suggestions. A must for any start up event planner.
