Pippa Middleton, Industry Over-Saturation and YouFriday, October 26, 2012
Pippa Middleton's new party planning book comes out next Tuesday. If you think the wedding and event industry is over-saturated now, just wait. It is about to see a new influx of people in every industry category, particularly planning. Some will be talented and some won't. Some will be brand new and some will be inspired to move from working in events for someone else to trying it on their own.
In light of this, a couple of choices:
*Waste your time and talent by complaining about missing the good old days and write off everyone who succeeds as "just lucky."
*Do what you can to pay it forward and make the industry better while simultaneously improving your own company and continuing to set yourself apart.
The industry is growing and changing and looks much different today than it did even just five years ago. Being willing to grow and evolve with it is key to survival.
