Your Meeting Matchmaker Fairy Godmother

Year of the Meeting Planner

in: Event Planning Advice Fun

year of snakeOkay, not really. It’s actually, according to The Chinese culture, the Year of the Snake, most specifically the Water Snake. We tend to call people who are untrustworthy, or sneaky, or all around slimy – snakes. But this is not the case at all when it comes to the astrological aspect. Instead, snake people are intelligent and wise; and are regarded as great thinkers.  They also tend to be extremely creative and diligent. Hmmm, sounds like all of the meeting planners I know.

In case yrou are wondering, your Chinese Astrological sign is the snake if you were born in 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, or this year, 2013 (many future meeting planners in the making this year, perhaps?).

This color for this year is black; and the black snake will bring people unexpected changes, instability and changeability. In this year, it is more important than ever to plan everything beforehand, be keen on evaluation, be careful and cautious, as well as to dot all the i’s and cross all the t’s. Again, it sounds like all of the meeting planners I know.

The suggestions for this year are to thoroughly read over and consider all documents before signing on the dotted line. Wow – sounds like a good site selection manager could sure come in handy this year : )

Also, 2013 supports added responsibility. I know, like you need even more responsibility than you already have. Again, I am thinking a good selection manager could sure come in handy! (hint, hint)

Water Snakes tend to be especially good with finances; money seems to just flow their way. So perhaps there is a raise in store for you, and perhaps your meeting budgets will provide you with more slither, I mean, wiggle room.  Of course, you won’t need any additional funds to take advantage of my value add services.

Year of the Snake? Year of the Meeting Planner sounds more likely, am I right?!

By the way the lucky numbers for this year are 2, 4, 7 and 9. So be sure “2” call me at 636-797-3405 (my phone number has 3 of the 4 lucky numbers, just sayin’).
