Ever hosted a childrens' birthday party? Booking the restaurant, planning the
menu, putting together the gift bags and making sure the entertainment shows up
is no easy task. But if you're the type of person who excels in a fast-paced,
detail-oriented atmosphere, then event planning could be the career for you.
Just as it is with parenting, you'll have to coordinate everything seamlessly
and be able to think on your feet to make sure any problems that do arise are
taken care of quickly. If you're a born networker who can maintain multiple
relationships with vendors and routinely pull off gatherings without a hitch,
this is a great job for you.
