Hello, and thank you for taking the time to check out my first post. As many of you know, I recently started my own business, Bianchi Productions, and I’m excited to launch this blog and begin sharing my passion for events, and more, with all of you!
A little background for those of you just reading about this exciting new venture: Bianchi Productions is a boutique event planning company whose mission is to spread love, light and positivity by creating memorable and meaningful events. Our hope is that “Celebrating Life’s Memorable Moments” helps achieve that objective while also providing insight into the event world and inspiration on life, love and entrepreneurship.
If you’re wondering what types of topics we will be covering, here’s a little peak into the plan as it stands today (lord knows these things change by the minute):
Event Planning Tips
Favorite Venues and Locals
Catering and Restaurant Reviews
Travel and Life Inspiration
And through all that, you can be sure there will be many references to music and dancing, because besides my family and friends, that is what brings me the most joy in life. #TRUTH
Have you heard the saying “it’s better to be lucky than good?” Well I think it’s better to be both! I’ve been extremely lucky to have worked for several* smart, strong and inspiring women throughout my career. Thank you to all of you for showing me that hard work and a positive attitude can lead to amazing things. Thank you also for giving me the knowledge and confidence to start my own business, I am forever grateful for all that you’ve taught me.
Speaking of amazing things, I’d like to share a little bit about a company I recently discovered whose mission I think is so important.
While attending a conference for entrepreneurs and small business owners earlier this fall, I had the privilege of listening to a man by the name of Chris Pan speak. Chris is the founder of MyIntent.org and closed out this year’s QuickBooks Connect with a session so moving it’s hard to put into words. Wow, was this man inspiring!
After a fabulous meditation and listening exercise, Chris explained his company’s mission of being a catalyst for meaningful conversations and positive energy. Through that mission, he started asking others, “What’s Your WORD?” and he engraves that word on a bracelet. Your word is something you want to have more of in your life or a challenge you want to overcome.
So in closing, I would love to hear from you…What’s your WORD?
Mine is happiness.
