Today I'm so excited to celebrate 13 years as a wedding & event planing company...7 of them which have been full time in this entrepreneurial arena!!! There have been plenty of ups and downs but certainly more smiles than tears. And as I reflect, I wouldn't change a single, solitary thing because each experience has given me the armor needed to sustain in this industry.
Dejanae Events is my baby...literally...a company I created on April 23, 2000 and named it after my only child a couple years later. My story is unique because I started this business with less than $500 and a huge dream of convincing my peers that they needed someone to help with their upcoming weddings. I didn't know what the name of this "person" was, but I felt it in my heart that their was a need. It was almost a force that pushed me into this business. So I researched, trained myself and made plenty of mistakes financially, professionally and personally along my journey. And when I left Corporate American on June 22, 2006 to grow Dejanae Events full time...I have never looked back! Not even once. Today, I smile as a certified, award-winning wedding and event planner, author and educator with over 200 weddings and events under my belt. Thank you God for my journey!
I also would like to thank each and everyone of my family members; friends; FB, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest followers; and each of my blog readers for your love, kind words and support over the years. 13 years down and plenty more to go!!! This is just the beginning :) Blessings!
