If you are a mother of a young child and you are looking to get back into the workforce, event planning can be the perfect career move. It is a flexible job that allows you to work from home so you can keep one eye on your child and one eye on your bottom line.

But convenience isn’t the only reason event planning makes a great career move. Here are some other ways event planning and motherhood go hand and hand when it comes to giving you the skill set you need to succeed.

They Require Creativity

New moms need to be creative in so many ways. They need to use out of the box thinking to figure out everything from where they are going to change their babies to how they are going to get everyone where they need to be when they need to be there to what they are going to do to get their kid to stop crying.

They also need to be creative in their teaching methods and pass that creative spirit onto their child. 

Event planning takes creativity as well. Event planners need to be creative in how they decorate, the themes they use, the musical entertainment they hire and the way they present their events. They also need to be creative to organize efficiently and make sure their events make money.

Being creative in one aspect of your life will definitely benefit other aspects of your life which is one reason why motherhood and event planning are mutually beneficial. 

You Need to Manage Your Team Efficiently

Behind every good event is a good team. 

When you organize an event, you need a good team behind you. You need people that are creative and skilled. You need people you can count on.

When you are raising a baby, you also need a strong team. This includes teachers, doctors, babysitters and relatives. You need to learn how to deal with this team and be assertive when you need to be. 

Learning to be a strong leader can help you in both your personal life as a mother and in your professional life as an event planner.

You Need to Learn to Count on Other People

A lot of leaders have a common problem; they don’t like to ask for help. This can be caused by pride or it can be a lack of trust in how others will handle their business. 

Mothers can have similar issues with their babies. They may not trust others to care for their children or they may be too proud to reach out for help.

Just like it takes a village to raise a child, it also takes a village to run a business. Other people’s input can be valuable and their labor can do a lot when it comes to taking the stress off your shoulders. Learning to delegate tasks to others plays a major role in both motherhood and the event planning process.

If you are a mom looking to get back into the working world, event planning can be a flexible and convenient option. It can also help you develop your skills as a mother while giving you valuable tools to move forward in your career. We wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.
