Once our children are old enough, they let us know exactly what kind of birthday party they want. They learn real early to pick a character for their plates. But what about when they are too young to decide? You could do what most people do and pick a character for them like Barney, Elmo or Winnie the Pooh for their birthday party. Or, you could celebrate what they DO love, and center a birthday party around that.
One of my favorite food events is the Jackson Heights Farmers’ Market. This market is a veritable who’s who of tasty vegetables. It also features cooking demonstrations, education, and music. Plus it’s a great way to get to know your neighbors and local farmers. These farm fresh food products are some of the best the state has to offer. Recent changes in the scheduling mean that the market is now open all year round! See change of seasons is reflected in the produce selection in this incredible food event. The green market is a general hub for activity and family fun all year round. It is a music event, food event, and rollicking good time rolled into one. All the money spent goes to local farmers and helps the local economy.
Now that your invites are chosen, it’s time to transform your home into a Hawaiian hangout. With the warm weather, the best place to begin is outside, so you should think about adorning your deck with a silk flower deck fringe. Also, try hanging a grass skirt from your tables in order to match the decor. Of course, there are more items you’ll need to include. Place a few realistic-looking faux-palm trees around the Venue and Event Space in order to add a natural element to your shindig. Along with that, a tiki head bubble machine is sure to give your partygoers something to laugh about as the soapy spheres emerge from its mouth. As a final touch, hang some pink and blue lanterns to provide some soft illumination as your party heads into the night.
It’s not unusual for venues to charge extra for equipment, such as flip charts, projector screens and especially AV equipment which can turn your good value workshop into an expensive event that eats in to your budget. Consider your equipment requirements and discuss everything with the venue before confirming your booking.
You can find so many business owners online and they are in need of someone who can complete some tasks for them. If you’re competent and fast worker, then you can be a virtual office assistant to many clients.
The quote, “Find a job that you love and you will never work a day in your life,” has encouraged many small business owners to hang out their shingle.
Be contactable. You are not allowed to give your email details but you still need to make yourself easily available. Regularly check for messages and offer to be available to chat on Skype. As a Buyer I like to talk directly to whoever I am going to work with and whilst Skype contact can be very interruptive it is still a great tool for working with teams remotely. Building up a relationship with the Buyer is as important in the virtual world as it is elsewhere. Once you win a contract focus on building the relationship whilst you deliver a great service and your business will flourish.
