Employers and clients want producers with whom they can depend and with whom they enjoy working. So if you are dependable and work hard enough to always get the job done well, then you will be recognized and respected. It is also important to be kind to everyone and keep your options open. This will allow you to make the connections necessary to eventually join a large production company or get a big-time client.
Do you have questions for Flo? If you do, you can reach her via fminiscloux extraordinaryevents. While other children typically experience movies, theme parks and occasional family vacations, this kid did that and more! I traveled more, was exposed to more and got to observe the positive work ethic of my mother — which had a large effect as I grew up and started working. I literally grew up in the business.
Not bad, right? My friends were pretty jealous, and all wanted to change places with me. In fact, on one of those days, while driving Ziggy and his band, we stopped by Guitar Center for some items. Once there, about four or five of them grabbed instruments and put on a nice little acoustic show for the customers. It was certainly a highlight! Over the years as I was growing up, I attended entertainment showcases and traveled to MPI meetings nationally.

Even with this great experience under my belt, I went off to California State University Northridge to explore journalism and got an opportunity to try covering high school and junior college games for the Los Angeles Times. From there I went to work for another Southern California paper, and that turned into 10 years of on-the-job education. But, even though I loved it, the pay was never good, and I never saw my wife, since she worked days and I was always working nights and weekends. Something had to give. A family meeting determined that a move to Extraordinary Events would be good for both Andrea and me and the future of EE.
It was the perfect opportunity to balance my home and work life and earn the degree. This was a stark difference to my days at the newspaper, which were all about learning through experience. So, when other event producers ask me how I compare having a business degree to practical experience, I have to say they both have a number of strengths and weaknesses. In my first two years at the newspaper, I learned more than I ever would in two years of school studying the subject.
I found a few really strong mentors who were open to sharing their knowledge, and I would advise anyone starting in the business to do that. And to be fair, I had the mentor of all mentors in the event production business as well!
The most valuable experience my big takeaway with having Andrea as my mentor was seeing how she deals with vendors and clients. Her communication skills and the way she rectifies situations are amazing to me. These are the values of having a mentor to emulate. For people starting out in the business, unless their goal is to own a company, my advice would be to reach out to quality event production companies and offer to support them in pre-production and on-site projects. This provides an opportunity to gather work for resumes and gain valuable experience.
Working hard and showing a company how much you can help them is an invitation for them to let you stick around! For those who want to become owners, a business education is crucial if the company is to grow from a small, tight-knit company under five people into a true event company. Otherwise, once the business expands, you will experience too many growing pains along the way!
Ultimately the decision to join Andrea and EE was the best business choice I have ever made. Working with family is not the easiest thing to do, but there are far more benefits and rewards from the experience. Best of luck to you in all your endeavors,.
A Little Good News…. Everyone was miserable. Everyone was depressed. The economy was tanking and showed no signs of recovery. Businesses like those of my competitors were closing their doors; companies were being downsized; salaries were cut, benefits cancelled.
Newspapers were filled with doom and gloom. And I was fed up with it.

Instead I knew that the pendulum of life dictates that though it swings in one direction, it will invariably swing back, usually landing somewhere in the middle…and that is called stability. I decided that I wanted to surround myself with just good news, and thus our Good News-Paper was born, in utter simplicity.
See my opening issue that the EE team produced. We emailed it to our entire email contact list and lo and behold got some very supportive messages back. People liked it and encouraged us to keep going. I wanted to feel good.

So I scoured the Internet, the newspapers, and all media to seek out only good news. At the next trade show I attended, the feedback was incredible. Every week people contribute, and my team bless them! Everyone has inside of him a piece of good news. How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is! South America. Everywhere I go people are still stopping me. Since I write about my grandchildren a lot, they now are known in almost every country and their adventures some with me are commented on worldwide.
I can imagine when they are old enough to travel with me that they will have a lot of friends. I will never regret that in I put the misery of the world behind me and sought to instead be pro-active. But I confess. I started this just for me. As Always, thank you for taking this journey with us! I write a lot of books. I teach seminars all over the world to industry peers as well as to college students. Whenever possible, I also mentor novices who want to enter the event industry and even some who just want advice on how to navigate this stressful world.
EE produces events globally, and I run a very complex business and travel for work. That was reinforced by my role models.
