    123. Three Things To Consider When You Don't Have Support

    123. Three Things To Consider When You Don't Have Support

    Whether your goals are for fitness, starting/growing your business, or just in general... support has been something I've always looked for to feel secure moving forward. But what happens when you don't have it? Then What?  In this episode, I'm sharing my best advise for this challenge. 

    Here are Three Steps to help you get the support you are needing:
    1. Tell the truth about your aspirations. What are you really going for? If you talk small about your goals and dreams you may find that you're not showing up for your goals and dreams in the best way. Tell your supporters what you intend to create in ALL of it's greatness.
    2. Lead by example. It’s easy to get defensive when someone shares unsolicited advice, but being the victim isn’t helping your situation. Instead, try talking only about the successes you’re experiencing, no matter how small they seem, so the people around you can see what’s possible for you.

    3. Hear their fears. More-than-not, you’re not being supported because the other person is expressing their own fears and projecting their own failures.

    You've got this. Remember to have a strong "WHY" that you can go back to and keep going. Give yourself permission to fail and permission to learn from it.

    121. What To Say When Someone Doesn't Like You or Your Business

    121. What To Say When Someone Doesn't Like You or Your Business

    Based on this need for social connection, your reactions to rejection, negative judgment and stinging sarcastic remarks can range from minor hurt to bouts of depression. The ability to let a show of dislike roll off your back is a learned skill. You have to consciously balance your need to be liked with understanding what is true about the current situation.

    1. Catch yourself reacting defensively or shutting down. The first step to handling a negative situation is to recognize your reaction. Instead of stuffing your emotions, you need to stop three or four times a day and ask yourself, “What am I feeling?”

    2. Ask yourself what is true about the situation. When you sense yourself shutting down or feeling defensive, ask yourself what you believe the person meant to do to you. Did they truly mean to insult you, betray you, disrespect you, or make fun of you?

    3. Finally, if you believe the person doesn’t like you, ask yourself whether this matters. Some people will like you. Others will not. Will the person’s judgment of you impact your work or life?

    119. 5 Things I Learned From My Event Planning Minor at Utah Valley University with Paynton Matthews

    119. 5 Things I Learned From My Event Planning Minor at Utah Valley University with Paynton Matthews

    Today I'm joined by UVU's newest event planning graduate: Paynton Matthews and I'm thrilled for you to listen in!



    Here are her five biggest takeaways from her time at event planning school:


    Things go wrong at events and it is out of your control. You have to think quick and not let your client know you are stressing. Think quick on your feet! You have to plan down to every little detail. Even the simplest of tasks can make the biggest difference.
    You wear many hats as an event planner. Knowing things in every aspect of event planning from audio to catering can be so helpful. Also, you may be a therapist or a seamstress from time to time. Whatever the job calls for!
    Building a network is so important. Building a network of other event planners and vendors can be helpful in your career.
    This is a stressful job (always in the top 5 most stressful jobs) it is important to find an activity/hobby outside of work (like dirtylicious) that can help you de-stress after work. It is very important for your mental health.
    Creating a memorable experience for the guests is so important. They may not remember the souvenir they brought home that night but they will remember the happiness they felt while attending your event.

    Event Planner's Toolbox:

    Batteries, black duct tape, bottled water, calculator, clear packing tape, clipboards, energy bars, extension cords, first aid kits, flashlights, floral wire, hammer, hand sanitizer, highlighters, mending kit, flat tire repair, jumper cables, pain reliever, paper clips, pencils, pens, markers, personal hygiene items, pocket knife, lint roller, rubber bands, safety pins, scissors, screwdriver, super glue, tape measure, USB drive, phone chargers/batterie backs, Walkie-Talkies, Ziplock bags.

    118. How To Maintain Relationships During Coronavirus

    118. How To Maintain Relationships During Coronavirus

    Whether you've put your own business on hold or been furloughed... event planners need to maintain relationships. Eventually, things will go back to normal and events will happen again. You have two choices here: 1. Do nothing (come on girl, you're better than that!) or 2. Stay in contact the best way you know how.

    Think of creative ways to keep in touch with clients and vendors, like putting more into social media or tagging them in a past event post. Now more than ever, it's important to post regularly on Instagram and LinkedIn so people know you are here and working, even if we are in remote offices.

I’ve held a handful of events for myself and clients and found Chelsey and her material only but a couple months ago. Since then I feel that because of her tips, experience, and the way she explains and teaches, has completely FIRED ME UP!!! This podcast (and anything else she produces) is packed of education!
