Joette and Eddie Meet at Lauderdale Paper

Q: What are you most excited for at Balloon Boss Summit 2022?

Thank you, Eddie, for letting us get to know a little bit more about you. Among the other things he is “king” of, Eddie is the King of motivating others to make money with balloons. He shares wisdom on tips and tricks that make you more efficient and profitable. 

Eddie is one of those people you can’t help to smile when you are around him. You never know what he will do next – from jumping up on a table to teaching in a crown. He has been on the Balloon Coach teaching team since 2016 in Chicago when we taught Parade Promotions & Profits in Chicago with Balloons by Tommy.   In 2021, he served as a mentor to the new instructors at Balloon Boss Summit to help them prepare for their time on stage helping them hone in on their message.

For Balloon Boss Summit 2022, Eddie will share the stage with long time friend Peggy Williams to teach Balloon Bootcamp on Sunday from 10 am to noon. You do NOT want to miss this comedic, dynamic duo as they share their wisdom with you! 

Still need a ticket? Only about 30 tickets remain! Check out all of the details HERE and we look forward to seeing you in Orlando November 6-10th! Check back next week when we will introduce you to yet another amazing part of our Balloon Boss Summit team!
