What I loved about this interview
I love that Amanda is so knowledgeable about running events and taking them online. I also appreciated how she showed what mompreneur life is all about when her little girl hopped up on her lap during our interview.
After being in the events industry for 11 years and two kids later, I realized that I needed to be in control of how I spend my time and who I work with so I started my own business. Now, I help event professionals work with their dream clients while getting paid what they are worth without working insane hours. This created a ripple effect in my life. There is more “balance” in my life between work and family. I am happier and healthier because of it and so are my kids.
Her “jet pack” wedding helped her launch her online event business
She got married on a jet pack.
I am not even completely sure what that means but it sounds awesome!
She told me that she had wanted her family to be there but what do you do when your wedding is on a jet pack.
I mean how does one include your mother-in-law in that kind of event?
Luckily for Amanda Engler she had been an event planner for many years and knew how to pivot to create a virtual experience for her non jet pack guests.
Little did she know that this would prepare her for the current event economy where events are moving online.

Amanda’s Bonus Wisdom
Why is this topic so important to you?
Because I don’t want to see one event/meeting planner left behind!
What do you want to share about your area of expertise that will make all the difference for women? “whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right” we all get into this industry for one reason or another but if you cannot adapt then you might not survive.
How does your area of expertise help you in your life? It gives me more balance and it is less physically demanding.
When is a time in your life when you went through a challenge & what helped you? When my son started school and I was working insane hours. Making the choice to work for myself made all the difference.
What is one thing that you wish someone told you that you had to learn the hard way? Practice what you preach. I wanted work life balance but sometimes I find it hard to stop working and just be with my family. That was the whole reason I started working for myself but I love working as well. My son called me out on it one day and said he wished I would go back to working at my old job. That stung. But we worked through it and I know when I’m getting sucked back into a workaholic. So being mindful of this so we do not go back to the way things were.
Please tell me about your family & what helps you juggle your work & family? Communication, expectation and boundaries.
What is something interesting about you that most people don’t know? I got married on a water propelled jetpack! If you google jetpack wedding, you will see my husband and me!
