    So You Want To Start A Venue? | May Yeo Silvers | The Venue RX

    So You Want To Start A Venue? | May Yeo Silvers | The Venue RX

    On this weeks episode our host Jonathan Aymin sits down with May Yeo Silvers to discuss what its like to transition from a high level executive employee to a business owner, why starting a venue is not for everyone, and how to get really practical when it comes to setting goals and why.   

    About Our Guest:   

    May Yeo Silvers, is an event planner with over 20 years of experience in the hospitality and events field. As the founder of Events4Anyone™, she provides mentorship to event/wedding planners to help them start and grow their event/wedding planning business to a six-figure profit company. Her journey in the industry began in Singapore where she is originally from. She started her hospitality career as a food and beverage trainee at the Raffles Hotel, Singapore. It was there that she fell in love with the hospitality industry and decided to pursue this field further. In 2004, she came to Miami, Florida to help establish the events and food & beverage departments at The Setai, a brand new luxury hotel overlooking the iconic South Beach. She eventually worked her way up to Director of Catering and Conference Services and Director of Event Planning at several luxury hotels, including the JW Marriott Marquis Miami and The Royal Palm, South Beach, where she was part of the hotel opening team.  

    After more than a decade working an average of sixty hours every week, she decided to start her own event planning company so she could spend more time with her family. That’s why she created M2 Hospitality 8 years ago, now she gets to do what she loves and live the life she always dreamt of because of the financial freedom her event planning business has given her.   

    She also founded Events4Anyone™ because she wants to show other event planners what's possible and that you don't need to have a lot of money or connections to achieve great things. By being authentic, trustworthy, having a strong work ethic and a positive attitude, you can do what you love, be emotionally fulfilled and get rewarded handsomely at the same time. She believes everyone has the potential to do great things. Nobody is entitled to success, but all of us have the opportunity to succeed. She wants to help activate your potential, unleash your business, open your mind so you can inspire others as well as achieve what you are looking for in life, not just in your business.

New Wedding Owners

My partner and I are currently building our wedding venue and have spent the last year diving into this podcast. Coming from two people not involved in the industry until now, we cannot say enough kuddos to this podcast. It has been very informational and reassuring hearing from multiple guest speakers to help guide us through this uncharted territory. Great job!!
