Meet Briana Zimmerman of Privé Events and Glow Girls in Lohi

Today we’d like to introduce you to Briana Zimmerman.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
A Boss Babe is who I am! A combination of being detail-oriented, a 98% extrovert (according to Mr. Meyer Briggs), a fulfillment in leading, being just as creative as logical, and goal oriented. Even if somehow I restarted my life over and over again, I would still end up as an Event Planning Entrepreneur. It was written in the stars!

Other than just being born this way, I got started by diving into any leadership and planning opportunity I could juggle. Entering college, I was told that “wedding planning wasn’t an actual career.” Ha! Look at me now Mr. Miller! This taught me that I know myself more than anyone else. I was created to be me, so I am not doing it right if I don’t be myself.

After doing a few jobs in the event planning industry, I knew two things. 1. I don’t want to work for anyone…ever and 2. I could do it better! That led me to co-owning Glow Events, a wedding and event planning company with a friend I met on a missions trip in Rome. Which enabled me to start Glow Girls, a glamour girl birthday party business.

Fate would have it that I would merge with Privé Events, a wedding and event planning company, that I currently own with the one-and-only Brittany Tolibas. We are here to do what we do best, lead and plan, As we empower other ladies to pursue their planning dreams, we are also helping tons of couples, moms, and businesses plan and execute their special days!

Has it been a smooth road?
An obstacle I have is my age. Not only do people think that 24 is too young to own two business…my client list would prove them otherwise…but I also look 16! I have a sister who is five years younger than me and we always get mistaken for twins or they assume I am the younger one. I have to overcome this by establishing credibility through sharing my work, experience, and knowledge. Don’t judge a book by its cover, People!

It is also hard financially in the first few years of business. I’ve had to balance a lot of side jobs in order to make enough money to pursue my entrepreneur dreams. It is hard to balance! Luckily, my goal-oriented nature helps me look at the big picture and stay focused. I live minimally and work hard to live the perfect life for me. Luckily, the struggle has paid off as I continue to get more clients and have to make less lattes for cranky customers!

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Privé Events and Glow Girls story. Tell us more about the business.
Privé Events is an event planning and floral design company (Petals and Planning we like to say). We are known for our passion and experience of planning, executing, and designing events while making it stress-free for our clients. We choose to help others save time and melt-downs by proving a passion-filled, stress-free experience. From inspiration to implementation, we are here to help! We stand out from others because of our natural-born talent and our passion for what we do. Unlike others who join a career that may or may not align with who they are and their value, we created one! We are living our dream by creating yours.

I also own Glow Girls which is a glamour girls birthday party company. Our goal is to make each event unique and convenient. No more Pinterest fails, we come to you and put on a great experience making each birthday girl feel like a Queen, Rock Star, or Pampered Princess! Mom’s love our mission of empowering girls to be themselves. Yes, getting your makeup and nails is fun. But you aren’t your updo; you are who you are on the inside.

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
As “wedding planners” become less cliché, I think that brides will see this shift and realize that they can’t have a great wedding without someone there executing all their plans and implementing their hard-earned money. More clients for us and other awesome wedding planners!

I love how floral trends are constantly evolving. It keeps us on our toes and intrigued. I don’t know what is to come next, but I am ready for it!

Also, as working moms become the norm, there will be less time and energy to plan a glamorous party. That is where Glow Girls come in! Spend that time with your family and resting, not trying to craft a balloon arch you saw on Pinterest.
