    Overseeing Success: Do You Have What it takes to become an Event Planner?

    in Self Help

    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. Her leadership roles have included: Owner of ZZAJ Art Gallery in Harlem; Vice President of Operations for the Modern Day Marine Force in Readiness Exposition; Executive Director of the Alvin Ailey Dance Theatre Foundation of Maryland; President/COO/Associate Publisher of the Hispanic Engineer and Information Technology Magazine and the Black Engineer and Information Technology Magazine; and Producer of the Black Engineer of the Year Awards Conference.

           Rich Habits - The Wealth DNA radio show is dedicated to helping you increase your wealth, as well as educating savers & investors. During this show our guest will definitely help educate savers & investors on what good habits and bad habits they have. Have you heard the old adage "Understanding the Problem is half the Solution"?  Certainly each of us can find examples of what others are doing wrong & what they should do differently. But it's much harder when the "other person" is the one we see in the mirror! So why not analyze many different people - some Rich and others Poor, and see what we can learn from them? 


     
          To save you a lot of time, we decided to bring on a guest who has already done that research. More importantly he's analyzed their habits and documented them so we can see our similarities and differences with theirs. Given a choice – I certainly would prefer to develop the Habits of the Rich, and eliminate the habits I share with Poor. Our guest Thomas C Corley is a CPA, a Financial Planner,  and CEO of the Rich Habits Institute. He is passionate about financial  independence, and trains businesses, individuals, and students to become financially successful. Thomas C Corley is also the author of the #1 Bestseller Rich Habits - The Daily Success Habits of Wealthy Individuals.
     
          So if you'd like to learn more about the person you see in the mirror - you won't want to miss the show. So prepare your questions, grab a cup of coffee, tea, glass of wine, or your favorite beverage and join us for some great tips on developing Rich Habits
