Making money from download and hands on balloon training!


I would like for you to meet Sheetal Kurup, who lives in Milburn, New Jersey.

She posted this wonderful story about her experience getting paid to create balloon pieces for a local parade.  I find her story is one that might help YOU in your balloon journey!


Today I am super Happy and emotional and I really want to share this with you all. Warning it’s a long post and a personal story.

I just got back from my First Balloon Parade and I got paid $$$$ to do it. Yes I was paid to do my first Parade. 😊😊😊😊

My towns Local Chamber hired me to bring this unique parade decor to our town. It was a BIG HIT as it was a first of its kind in our town and people were blown away to see the balloons in this new light. The Snowman Balloon Costume was a super duper hit . Kids and adults loved it and I could see the smiles of joy it brought to peoples face.
Thanks Liz Romani for your download and easy to follow instructions on



Here is the story to how I got paid to do this Job and for all the believers in GOD you will love it . The skeptics I am hoping will be inspired too .

Last year Jan 2017 I Just started my business . I attended Promotions & Profits  in Orlando in October 2017 ( my first time ) with the intention to participate in my towns Snowflake parade happening in December 2017 . I was planning to invest my own money to do the parade and promote my new business and to bring visibility to it .

But a strong voice inside me kept saying NO. Don’t do it . I was confused as I had just returned from Orlando Promotions & Profits workshop and was so excited to do the parade , I had told Joette too about my plans … but something inside me very strongly kept saying NO.

In moments of such doubts and when I need guidance from GOD, I follow a practice of making chits with options written on it . I then place these chits in front of my Gods Idol whom I fondly call “ Sai Baba” .
We pray as a family to guide us in these moments of doubt . I then ask my daughter to pick one chit amongst all chits ( the chits are all folded and closed ) . So now whatever answer comes in that chit I blindly follow.

So the options I placed in those chits were
1- go ahead and do the parade 2017”
2 -don’t do the parade at all .
3- do the parade next year 2018.
I got my answer from God as the closed chit which my daughter picked with closed eyes was “ do the parade next year 2018”.

Here I am in 2018 , did the parade and got paid for it too.. got my business promoted and yes got it Noticed big time . All this due to my complete faith in God and patience. The chamber Contacted me for balloon decor and one event led to another and it led to me being hired to do the parade . I just couldn’t believe that this was happening . I had goosebumps and till date have it .

God is there watching over you as he is certainly there watching over me. You need to have faith in God and patience that Things will happen, Is what I learnt early on and I follow it 100%.

Thank you for reading this long post.. normally I practice my faith in private but today I don’t know why I felt strongly that I should share my story.












NOT only did Sheetal get paid for her work for the Chamber – but the Chamber gave her a big shout out on Social Media.
