During Closing remarks at FLOAT 2015, in St Louis Missouri, Steven Jones the executive Producer of FLOAT stated “Step Up Your Game” Many of the balloon professionals took his message to heart and are meeting and exceeding their goals!
Carolyn Truby, CBA posted some exciting news recently so I asked her for an interview to find out what she attributes her current success to. I asked her to share a little bit about herself and business.
I’m a perfectionist being an accountant and lawyer, so I held back thinking I didnt know enough or wasnt good enough. Once I decided to ignore the doubts I was able to excel.
Confidence is the key. I work full time as Director of Finance at Victory Christian Church International in Gaithersburg, Md. I live in Germantown, MD. Business name is Tru-B-loons Event and Party Decor. I have been in business for 4 years.
What made you “step up your game?”
It was a combination but more importantly for me it was believing in myself. FLOAT increased my confidence and added to my faith that I am on the right path for me, I just moved forward, as I did opportunities came. I also decided to make it a priority. Even though I still work a full time job, I dedicated time and money for education, maintaining my website, books, and social media. I pushed fear of the unknown out of the way and went for it. I also made great connections and communicated with people to learn and share info.
Carolyn made a post on Facebook with photos from an event:
I wanted to share that I am still steppin’ up my game. I learned how to trace a logo with my cameo sihlouette. It came out very well and the client was very pleased with their customized column toppers. While I’m grateful for all jobs, I am especially grateful for my last several jobs that have paid more than $1k and some more than $2k. Education is worth it, people. Invest in yourself. #stepupyourgame
I’d like to publicly thank Rachel Porter. I watched her YouTube videos and purchased some of her files to learn Publisher to create my proposals. I believe it made a world of difference in the level of professionalism that I presented to this new client. Here is a sample of the proposals that I was able to create having never used Publisher before. I am so psyched!
Thanks Carolyn for sharing your story!
