I’ve always wanted to go into the party-planning business. Turns out, one of my best friends was also thinking about it. So we got together, talked things over, and decided to give it a try. Her birthday party in October is going to be our debut into the party-planning world.
When we were discussing the particulars of our new business venture, it was unavoidable that the subject of capital would arise. When we were trying to compute our overhead, we were getting a bit discouraged because the costs kept piling up – rent for office space, salaries, furniture, etc. Then I remembered that we live in a digital world now.
What made me remember this is the fact of another upcoming event. My batchmate from high school is getting married this November and to commemorate the happy event, they had a website done, which detailed their love life. I guess they just couldn’t contain their happiness. It was either that or they just wanted to boast of the fact to the rest of the world. So, part of their site was a short story of their relationship, selected pictures throughout that time, names and photos of their entourage and a gift registry. And of course, the details of their wedding.
Hence, we decided to make the Internet our office. We’ll put up a website, and place our portfolios there. Of course, we’ll probably still have a physical office, but it will just be for client meetings. Although even that could be done in either of our houses. Talk about cost-cutting.
