In this video, Afton begins by discussing the very important topic of mental health. Over the last year, mental health issues have increased drastically. Of course, this is due to the pandemic, lockdowns, economical turbulence, etc. One thing many of us have all had in common is that our motivation has suffered in the wake of this new normal. Afton touches on why this is – and why it’s perfectly normal to feel this way!
Next, she delves into why it’s so important to NOT give up during this trying time. In this segment, she goes on to break down 3 critical tips for those currently enrolled in an event planning certification course. These 3 tips are:
- Participate on social media;
- Take your time;
- And celebrate after each session.
Afton then turns her focus to those who have already started their professional event planning career and run their own business. When it comes to staying motivated while running a business during the pandemic, Afton’s Top 3 tips are:

- Collaborate with vendors;
- And be willing to be flexible.
