How I felt about my First Event | Becoming a Young Entrepreneur

Hey guys!

As a teenager I always admired celebrities just like everyone else my age but the people I really looked up to were young entrepreneurs. When you're young your 20s sounds like a big age and I have also said to myself one day I want to be able to start up my own small business when I'm in my 20s and here I am. I am 21 now and I have started my own Event Planning and Management business called Beau Chic Events. (@beauchic_events)

It all sounds nice and wonderful, the picture perfect story of a girl who became an entrepreneur at 21. The truth is, you can portray things in any way you want to. On the 21st September I hosted my first ever event in London as part of my company and I must say that project has taught me so much as an entrepreneur. The skills and knowledge I gained from the experience can't be bought. I must say I am very proud of myself looking back at it now. I had to make big and bold decisions and I realised what it is like to be a small start up company and how you will get treated in the world of business. I also learnt a lot about friendships and family. I received a tremendous amount of support. What I learnt the most is that not everyone will be happy for you. Some people will only be there when the grass is green. Those that stuck through all the difficult parts of planning this event have really made me appreciate family and friendship to the extra extent. I was having anxiety attacks, I was nervous and honestly it was heart warming to see how many people actively made the effort to get me through it all.
Everything goes by the statement of "That's how business is". I have a lot to learn but I've started young and I have many years to go. Majority of small start up companies end up failing after their first year and if not they don't survive longer than 3 years. For me this was about experience and gaining skills. I took many risks, had many anxious nights, sleepless days but at the end I just felt happy for myself for who I am now.

I will never stop learning, this is all part of a massive learning curve, I will dare to take many more risks, open to many more positive and negative experiences. The self motivation is there!
I can't wait to continue this journey of my own. I have another goal that I am currently working on but I don't like to jinx my opportunities in life so I'll keep you guys updated on my working progress on that in due time!
