She has been working full time managing a construction company for the past 5 years. At one point in her life she was working 2 full time jobs plus a part time weekend job while also putting herself through university and paying for it out of pocket. She literally did not sleep for 2 and a half years. She took power naps and showered at community centers or gyms whenever possible. She did all this because she purchased a house when she was 22 for her parents and she really needed the money for the mortgage and to graduate from her BA program.

She also enjoys binge watching a good show after a long day of work.

History About The Business

Ever since she was a kid she knew she would one day want to start her own business. She was back and forth on a few different ideas throughout the years. She landed on event planning a couple years ago when she was planning her best friend's wedding. Everyone around her always would say it's something that was really good at. Rhonda did have a little self-doubt. Starting something on my own was a little scary. Then earlier this year, after she got engaged, she started planning her own wedding. She was so excited and managed to plan her whole wedding in 3 months, booking all of her vendors and getting everything organized. Her wedding isn't until next year, so now that all the important stuff is already done, she felt like she was getting bored and sad that there was nothing left to do for a while. Then a couple months ago, her manager asked her to help find a reception venue for her niece's wedding coming up in 5 months. She started looking for venues and shopping for quotes, and again, the thrill and excitement that she was missing came back. This is how she knew, that she needed to turn this into a business.
