As a die-hard extrovert, I have always been attracted to the idea of bringing people together for events.
The only problem was that I spent the last 3 years traveling full time and had nowhere to invite people over to. Nor did I stay in any 1 location long enough to make more than 10 friends who I could bring together.
I finally decided I had spent enough time as a digital nomad and traveling in a sprinter van.
So I went to Bali and told myself I was going to live in 1 location for multiple months.
Here I was trying to decide if I was going to start an eCom business or start an events business.
At first, eCom seemed like the move because I would be able to continue to live my digital nomadic lifestyle.
But I had been feeling a lack of community during my travels. It took a while to feel this because I was always surrounded by new friends and was doing plenty of fun activities.
So I decided that I would start an events business.
The first step was to invite a bunch of the people I had met to a little meet and greet that’d I’d host at the co-working hostel I was staying at.
I got 9 people to come!
As simple as this first event was, it was still stressful to plan. I just had fear about if people were going to enjoy it or not.
