I bet that when you were little, you knew you had a knack for event planning. You were always checking lists, and coming up with multiple plans for any given scenario right? You were born to be an event planner. Are you still not sure? I had such a fun time with my eventprof friends, coming up with these 17 signs for you to use to figure out if you are born to be an event planner. Check them out!

  1. You think in acronyms….always have. (I need to get the BEO back to my CSM by EOD with the new instructions for the FOH)
  2. You’ve discovered the secret to covering up under eye circles and look amazingly fresh after 3 hours sleep.
  3. You thought kindergarten was unorganized and not an efficient use of time.
  4. You have a knack for finding the shortest line, and herding people to it.
  5. You always had the unique ability to get the party started at a very young age. (Birthday parties, family reunions, etc.)
  6. You always know were the nearest bathroom is, but you never use it because you never have the time.
  7. When going to dinner with your parents as a kid you had no issue with walking into the kitchen (ie. back of the house) to get more pepper.

  9. You love to research distance from airport, sunrise, sunset, traffic conditions, weather in remote destinations, and doing it all for 10 cities at a time on your lunch break.
