I never set out to be an entrepreneur. I truly thought, for the longest time, I would be an actress. Or a writer. Or a producer. Or all three.
But life likes to smack you upside the head and call you stupid. I really hated the idea of not being in control of my career and most of all, I felt like a non-contributing zero expecting people to pay me to “pretend” and then go away. And no offense to actors all over the world (lord knows I have plenty of talented actor friends) but I felt like a god dam sock puppet who was told to dance for my dinner. Pa-The-Tic.
I’ve been involved in the nightlife industry in some capacity my entire life. I’ve always had a passion for entertaining people, connecting with them, moving them and inspiring them. I realized that I was getting the same gratification through event production. This blew my mind. So did the tanking of Lehman brothers. That sucked. But that was the year small business were born. And Voila!
I hate lame parties. I fucking hate them. I hate lame people. Lame people suck. Lame people at lame parties is as torturous to me as watching curling. You know what’s worse then lame people at lame parties? Nothing.
That being said, I VOW to never be lame. Social Exposure was born out of a passion for the theatrics. It was born out of recognizing a need to communicate with each other in NEW ways. We have all been to a billion events and we’ve pretty much seen it all but what we almost NEVER do is what events are meant to do: CONNECT. Isn’t that bizarre? You walk away with all these business cards, and yet you met nobody.
Social Exposure events eradicate the LAME out of the atmosphere and breathe inspiring, exhilarating, NEW ideas so people really REMEMBER where the hell they went and who the hell they met.
See you at the next one.
