About Carolyn Horten

Hello and Welcome I am so excited to have you here and hope that you find what you are looking for to successfully create the event planning business of your dreams.
Event planning has changed my life and it can change yours too.  As a professional event planner with over 16 years experience I have seen the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to event planning. But having said that I still love the industry and it has created opportunities for me that I would never have been given anywhere else.  I have worked for celebrities, television shows, high profile clients, Fortune 500 companies and more. I have done millions of dollars in sales and worked for who I wanted when I wanted, but that wasn’t always the case. I paid my dues and learned enough lessons for a lifetime.  Even through all the lessons learned and the good and the bad I have always loved event planning.  It has allowed me to be creative and every client and every event is different.  I have always loved being an event planner.   I have loved the business for years even before it was so popular.

When I started my business in 1996 I had no idea the places it would take me and the lessons I would learn or the opportunities I would be given.  My event planning business evolved into a completely separate business which is allowing me to live my dream.  View my event planning site carolynhortenevents.com

WHY COACHING NOW? Even though I no longer do events I still miss the camaraderie of the event planning world and helping others reach their goals. There is nothing more fulfilling for me to be talking to a new event planner and be there when they have that light bulb moment.  Because event planning has created a life for me that I could only dream of a few years ago, I want to share my expertise to help others reach their goals.  I love coaching and paying it forward and knowing that all my years of event planning are not going to waste but being shared with like minded women who want to create a career and life for themselves that allows them to be creative, self supporting with the freedom of owning their own business.

Just so you know its not all cake balls and flowers and wonderful clients!  Which is why I am so excited to be able to offer you opportunities to get a peak into the workings of a successful event planners mind and how the business was run.  My trainings are not just for event planners they are also a great resource for wedding planners as well.  I am proud to offer Personal Coaching Calls with me as well as great Coaching Materials.

MY CURRENT LIFE…….. I am currently on the road travelling the United States with my family.  I only physically work on the ground 3 months out of the year on our Christmas decorating business and the rest of the year I am truly a free spirit. I am blessed to have it all, I get to work with my family, travel with my family and share and create memories that are priceless.  If you are talking to me on a coaching call or receiving emails from me there is no telling where I am or what beautiful scenery I am looking at while we speak.  I never in my wildest dreams would of thought that I would be able to travel and still run my businesses at such an early age. I am so lucky and if it wasn’t for the evolution of my event planning business it would have never happened for me.

I hope that you are able to take advantage of the many coaching and informational services I am offering that will help you avoid the pitfalls of event planning and be on your way to creating an awesomely creative business.
I truly want you to have your cake and eat it too!  I look forward to speaking with you soon.
Creatively, Carolyn
