We had the good fortune of connecting with Felicia Garris and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Felicia, do you have any habits that you feel contribute to your effectiveness?
Habits that i feel helped aid in my success would definitely be, having a positive attitude, networking, organization, and research. Having a positive attitude and being grateful with life, and my career path, has afforded me the pleasure of working and networking with some amazing clients. I’m also always reading, and researching. There’s so much more to planning an event, than meets the eye, and because of that i want to always be able to provide my clients with the most update information on pricing and what vendors in their communities have to offer that best fit their needs.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Events by Jenae’ is an event-planning company, that also specializes in wedding coordinating. I am the one that you give your vision, and sit back, and i bring it to life. With my resources, whether its a small, intimate event, or a large, corporate gathering, allow me to perfect the details while you relax and enjoy. This is definitely not easy, Still learning, still growing, and still gaining knowledge on a daily. But i wouldn’t have it any other way. The lesson i have learned, that has kept me, has been to keep my faith in God. It its in His Will for my life, then i will have it. If the client is for me, the opportunity is for me, then He will make away for it to be so. As i’ve stated before, i have a grateful heart, knowing that every person that i have encountered, and worked with, has been right for me. Im looking forward to the higher that He has for me.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Being on the outskirts of Atlanta, there are endless possibilities! We could do so much. I am an outdoor type person, given the right weather conditions lol, so we would probably go to this park in Roswell, Ga called the Roswell Mill Park. They have a great trail for walking, with a beautiful view of a waterfall. Im also a brunch girl. So heading to the Atlanta BeltLine to take in the sights, and then grabbing something to eat. I love great conversations and environments.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to give a shoutout to my family and friends, for their continued love and support. They are the first ones to refer me to anyone and everyone that talks about ANY type of event. lol. They are always rooting for my success. I would also love to shoutout my friend Natasha Hall. She has always, always pushed me, guided me, mentored me, and encouraged me in being an entrepreneur.
