Life is Full Circle - Blessed to be Successful

I am truly blessed to be Successful. Life has come full circle and you can't ask for anything more especially in this day, this economy, this recession!

Success is not measured by the money I have, the money I make, what I have, who I know and how much education I've had. Success as I know it is the ability I have to make a difference in the lives of others. If I know that I've helped someone become a better person or have provided my time and efforts to help make someone else smile - then I know that what I do and what I've done has been Successful.

I've been fortunate enough to have given the opportunity to give back to others that are less fortunate than me. I'm talking about my favorite two non-profit organizations: The Ronald McDonald House Charities and The Domestic Violence Action Center. These organizations mean a lot to me because it directly affects family and children in a way that it's not their fault for getting in a situation that requires the services of these two worthy causes.

Although I've only been in business for 5 years, I felt that it is never too early to start a relationship with the community. My motto, Building Families, Building Relationships and Building Communities as part of my 5th Anniversary pledge has given me the the drive to work with them and provide my knowledge and expertise in ways to help fundraise and provide behind the scenes support that will allow them to continue to raise funds and awareness to the communities that they serve.

I am meeting with both organizations today to assist and start planning events that will allow them to raise over $20,000. I can't wait to be apart of these community events that will make a difference in someone's life. We are in the process of coordination the Gala Event for The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Hawaii and the process of planning the 20th Anniversary for The Domestic Violence Action Center.

Should you want to participate, donate, volunteer or get educated on both of these two organizations, here are the links to their websites: and

Thank you for your time, I am blessed to be successful because I shared this with you today.

The Hawaii Bridal Expo Testimonial

On July 31st, I received a call from a bride-to-be, Sabrina who was a former employee of The Patisserie, a cake vendor at the expo. She worked with them several years ago and provided man power during the expo weekend.

During one of those expos, she was able to walk around and visit all of the many different vendors and collected their business cards, brochures, flyers and all of materials vendors were giving out. Although she wasn't engaged back then, she knew that one day she would get engaged and eventually get married. She was starting her research like every other girl/woman hoping to get married one day.

When I received her phone call, I asked her how she heard about Wedding Planner 808 for marketing purposes. She stated that she visited my booth and kept my business card and 4" x 6" postcard through the years. I asked her how did she decide to choose WP808 amongst all of the many wedding coordinators and consultants that were out there. She told me that I stood out because I was consistently at The Hawaii Bridal Expo, I had the best quality business cards and postcards, my booth consisted of family operated staff, and each expo I had a theme & color scheme that she could relate to. She was really impressed with just my overall business presentation at the expo. She thought that since I was striving for the best at each expo, that my work ethic was the same in general.

Sabrina had decided to hire me before she called me that day, she was going to hire me no matter what! When I met her at her complimentary consultation - she was ready to start and came prepared with her color scheme and wanted to sign a contract right there and then!
