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).

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.
