INTERVIEW GUEST: Marsha Reeves Jews, CEO of the Bissell Street Group, noted Speaker, Talk Show Host and the Director of Events for the Herbert Bearman Community Art Gallery.
This Week’s Message: An event planner is, quite simply, someone who organizes an event. When we think of an event we may think of something spectacular, such as the Super Bowl, the Presidential Inauguration, New Year’s festivities in Times Square, or any of the other major events we hear about or see on television. Of course, event planners are needed for all these events. However, event planners also work on thousands of smaller events. Any time people gather together for a purpose, whether it is for a wedding, a conference, a festival, a formal dinner, or the grand opening of a new store, someone is needed to oversee all the details to ensure the event happens and that it is a success. Can you juggle many things at once without missing the details? Are you results oriented but always cautious of the bottom line? If this describes you, then you might have what it takes to become an event planner.
For over 20 years, Marsha Reeves Jews has successfully led her consulting firm, the Bissell Street Group, to international prominence in Business Development, Marketing, Trade Show Management, Awards Ceremonies Production and Events/Meetings/Conference Planning. She has worked with a myriad of companies and in diverse leadership capacities.

LaTonya Washington is the boldest person I know in Event Planning, Radio Hosting and Producing. She doesn't know it but she is a mentor to people that she's never met in person. Me being one of them. LaTonya has always been the most knowledgable when it comes to handling things and protocol in Los Angeles and the surrounding area. She is the go-to lady. Whenever I have an issue with logistics, I look to LaTonya for advice and she responds immediately. I have grown immensely with her help. I love her to pieces. :o). LaTonya not only has a successful event planning business, she also hosts a radio show, right her on Blog Talk Radio called Real Talk: The Movement http://www.blogtalkradio.com/realtalkthemovement and she is the Producer of The List Tour for San Diego, Los Angeles and coming soon, Atlanta. Not everyone can or will be on The List. LaTonya is by trade a Nurse but she decided to shift gears and become an event planner. She is certified and has alot of big names that she has supported through her business.

Gianna Provenzano, celebrity wedding planner and owner of Gianna & Co. sits down to discuss all matters marriage while Simon Katz of Brilliance.com talks what engagement rings say about your relationship.
Heather Donovan has no time for her own romance—she’s busy making wedding dreams come true for other people and trying to reel her lonely and lovesick widowed mom Gloria back from beyond the brink of good taste. Her receptionist, Raul, is as interested in his hair style as he is in the clients. Indigo, the wedding photographer, never goes anywhere without his beret—or his attitude. Toss in Skye, the mommy-track best friend who wants to breathe organic air, Mario, the talented, hotheaded caterer with an eye for the ladies, and a tall, dark, and handsome stranger visiting the office on the eve of the busiest weekend ever, and you have a recipe for disaster. Or love. Or maybe both? Along the way discover how duck-hunter ice sculptures end up as rehearsal dinner décor at an upscale hotel, why the young doctor has a broken heart, and whose will prevails when the photographer challenges a young couple’s vision of the perfect wedding. Does love conquer all? We shall see!
The most influential people in my life were my dad, a small business owner and my mother a housewife, mother, and minister of the Gospel. Life was happy and safe as I grew up during the 1960's and 1970's. Our home was full of prayer, laughter, love, and peace. Not until I stretched my wings and launched out into my own marriage, did I understand the perils of life. With the enclusion of all the challenges I experience in life, I felt compelled to write 'Pearls & Pigs; The Backslider's Journey Home", in hope to inspire, encourage, or perhaps forewarn anyone that may be walking down the same path I treaded. I admonish you to take claim of your personal value and never exchange it for anything else, no matter what.
