A number of things. I wasn't able to study what i wanted to, which was event management, as my father felt it wasn't a job that would "put and keep a roof over my head". I ended up being a business analyst and did eventing on the side in my free time. Planning birthday parties, team buildings, corporate luncheons, baby showers, kitchen teas, etc.
When i married in 2013, so many things went wrong that i regretted not having someone on board to just take charge on the day and make sure we were oblivious to any issues and it was here that my lifelong dream was jump started once again. 3 Years later i found myself hating my job, not wanting to get up in the morning and unable to see myself working in corporate for the next 30 years.
I decided then and there that if i didn't make a change and take a leap of faith it was never going to happen. I resigned and registered to study full time at The SA School of Weddings where i graduated at the top of my class and received my certification in advanced wedding management. Whilst studying i started my own business and the reset is history as they say.
