Kori is living out her dream and that is inspiring. I love to see people do what they love. It constantly reminds me to do what I love.
Thank you for your comment. -Kori
Good to see women supporting women, what a great series for the month of March. Kudos to Kori for living out her dream. Can’t wait to read the rest!
Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life is what they always say. That’s one of my favorite quotes because it’s so true. I started working in events back in 2008 and I knew that’s exactly where I belong.
Cool! She is local to New York. I love it. I may need her one of these days.
Hi MUAKimPorter! Yes, I’m in Queens. Feel free to contact me for all your event planning needs. And, I might need a makeup artist too!
wonderful interview and sage advise to her 18 year old self. We all need to start to value experiences as early as possible.
I love seeing women going after the dreams unapologetically.. she knows what she wants and it’s inspiring
Dope interview. I loved her advice to her 18 year old self. Makes me wish I hadn’t waited so long to begin my own personal journey professionally.
I have so much respect for event planners like Kori. They can juggle so many tasks to make event look flawless.
I love that she’s living out her dreams and taking the time to share what inspires her with other entrepreneurs. I imagine that she gets to plan some really awesome events, especially being located in New York.
Everyone should have the opportunity to do what they love. I love hearing about women who are pursuing their dreams!
As a wedding planner myself, I can understand Kori’s why. There’s nothing better than that feeling your get when you helped someone plan and implement one of the most important day of their lives.
I wish her a huge amount of success. Wedding planning is hardwork, but I love that she is up to the challenge.
Love her quote.
I love the quote!! Def wish her continued success!!
