I haven't fallen off the face of the Earth or anything, just been busy trying to get my business up and running. I've spent the better half of June conducting market research, writing a business plan, and meeting with folks at a local business center who help start up companies get going.
This business plan has pretty much been my life, day in and day out for the past few weeks. But I am learning so much writing it, and I know it's going to be important to have if I decide to venture out for a small business loan.
I've also been busy working with my designers on a logo, business cards, and a web site. I've finished writing all the web site copy, and my logo has been finalized, but my web site is still currently in the works. If you'd like to check out my logo, you can see it at http://www.utaheventsbydesign.com/ (and go ahead and bookmark that as it is the future home of my web site once it's up and running).
So yeah, Utah Events by Design is on its way! I've already taken care of a lot of logistical things like applying for and receiving my official Utah State Business License (that was kinda cool to get in the mail), and I've secured a silent business partner/investor which is great news because starting a business aint cheap people. Especially if you want to advertise your business.
