A loan helped me to hire a social media manager, copywriter and graphic designer.
Two years ago, my professional life was affected in many ways. I learned quickly that I wasn’t completely fulfilled by being just a leader and I wanted to make an impact. I felt unaccomplished and frequently asked myself, “what am I doing with my life?” So when I lost my job, it became harder to see the bigger picture for my career. All I could see was the end of receiving a nice and steady paycheck, health insurance, and savings for retirement. However, despite the loss, I decided not to let this low in my career hold me back and launched PopChic Events. That year was tough and I did know the mission for my new company. But what I did know was that I’m good at selling and planning almost anything and liked the idea of creating a virtual component in the event industry. Today, PopChic Events focuses on virtual event production, corporate services, and providing management and coaching to help clients be successful. Just like everyone else, we’re adjusting to the Quarantine order by implementing our original idea of virtual event planning that the company is founded on.
