Two months ago I made a decision that will forever change my life and career and I would like to share it with you. I look back at my public letter that I published on July 9, 2011, and it brings back such a sense of pride. Doing something big is never easy. Having faith in yourself, and the ability and talent that you possess, is more than hard. I know that I had a great deal of support but I'm going to take all the credit for this decision. Regardless of how many people told me I could do and be whatever I wanted, I had to convince myself. That took time, soul searching and prayer. Working for someone is easier (note, not easy) ...they make the big decisions, pay the bills, worry about the business plans and making marketing decisions. All of that is important and I recognized that, but I knew I needed freedom to be ME! If that means I fail ... well then I fail. Regardless, I will own it and, quite frankly, I could not be more proud of who I am and where I have come in the last short 7 weeks. Those of you who have supported me unconditionally have my eternal gratitude. I hope that I will continue to make you proud as this new endeavor unfolds for me.
Open letter dated July 9, 2011
Over the last two years, I have had the pleasure of working as the Wedding Division Head for another planning company. My position allowed me to share in the happiness and love of countless couples who entrusted the planning of their wedding day to me. I was also fortunate to meet and work with some of the area’s finest wedding professionals. I have learned so much from each and every person with whom I have come into contact. Accordingly, my decision to leave was not made in haste, but after thoughtful consideration of my own dreams and goals.
I leave knowing that exciting things await me. I am proud to announce the opening of Celebrations by Amy Bacon. My passion for designing and coordinating celebratory events will be realized through this new venture. My vision for Celebrations is clear; I intend to offer wedding and event coordination services with only the highest level of personal care and attention. In short, I offer the very best in diligence, planning and coordination, vision refinement and implementation. I believe my reputation in the local event planning industry is strong and respected. I have worked diligently to cultivate relationships with other local vendors for whom I also have the highest respect. I sincerely hope that these professional relationships will continue and thrive as I establish and grow my own company.
Many celebrations, are not merely parties; they can represent the most emotional, pivotal, and exciting days of our lives. By investing in the coordination services of Celebrations by Amy Bacon, clients are ensuring that their event will be all that they ever dreamed it could be and more. More than that, they will feel a complete peace of mind that many may never imagined was possible. I pride myself on knowing every detail of an upcoming event as well, if not better, than my clients. When problems arise, they are mine to tend to, not the client. My services make it possible for my clients to enjoy their own events free from care or worry. An Amy Bacon Celebration is one at which everyone can feel free to cut loose, enjoy, and indulge.
As I move forward in developing my business, I look forward to working with clients, new and old. I also hope that the vendors and event professionals with whom I have worked in the past, will take a chance on referring their own clients to my new business. My commitment to providing personal and professional service that exceeds every expectation is renewed, stronger than ever. Having this opportunity to build a company with my vision, my goals, my values, and my name is a dream come true. I intend to do my best to help every client enjoy their own Celebrations, creating, even if just for a day, a dream come true for them, too.
I look forward to helping you with your special event!
