Oh, the Places You Will Go….
I had no idea that post-graduation from McCombs BBA in May 1998, I would be starting my own business after a short-lived run in tech for five years. It was never “planned” this way but I have no regrets since launching Red Velvet Events.
Looking back, I have a lot of appreciation for McCombs and the many lifelong friends I made along the way for giving me that extra push.
I always thought you had to have really deep pockets to start a business, but if you’re going to start a services type business like what I did, you really don’t need that much initial investment. Instead, you need focus, a good network, strong processes and a great team of partners to support you. Yes, it’s scary at first but you realize you are addicted to the adrenaline rush when you keep going after bigger and bigger pieces of business each time. And it’s so true that when you find something you love and are passionate about, you don’t think of it as work.
