I made it through my grand opening weekend and celebrated my new office at 5900 Ridge Road in Parma, Ohio with many old friends and several new friends. The journey of opening a new location, or in my case, transitioning from a home based business to an actual office has been both fun and time consuming.
The fun started the moment I met Tina of Memorable Expressions Photography and decided to partner with her and put myself into this wonderful Parma community and make myself available to the public on a daily basis. The fun also included choosing a style to decorate, picking out paint, rugs, curtains and furniture. The time consuming part came in when I actually had to plan how to execute and getting it painted, bringing the furniture and setting it all up. Along with planning a grand opening all while planning my husband’s surprise 50th birthday and a plethora of appointments, calls and new inquiries to work on.
All and all, we had a lot of support from our friends, family and the entire Parma community. From the mayor of Parma, Tim DeGeeter coming out to see our new office space, and several community members stopping by including Cherie of Amore Events and Diane of It’s All Personal Invitations, we had an amazing showing.
As we move forward past the grand opening and begin to operate on a day to day basis, I look forward to being a part of the Parma community, participating in parades and events and helping the community with planning their events in the future.
Please give us a call to arrange a tour of our new offices and talk about we can help to plan your next big event.
