(Newsletter) New Name. New Podcast. Who Dis?
Friends + Fam - You may have used our planning services, attended an affiliated event, and/or we just love you THAT much. In this series of updates, we're opening up about our journey + sharing the inspirational stories of lady-boss event experts and movement-makers on a mission to transform the communities around them.
FIRST THINGS FIRST
After a summer of soul searching, P&L reviews and instagram polls; GroupOut is now PLANFULLY.
We've rebranded and pivoted slightly, but with the same crazy commitment to revolutionizing the Event Planning marketplace. We're finally upgrading from manual searches to real deal technology (think algorithms and The Matrix) to empower event organizers with high-quality, vetted, vendor matches, upfront pricing, expert advice and most importantly, saved time.
At the core of our renewed mission, is building an inclusive community for our tribe of Event Experts; talented, business owners of color, majority women - like us, who crave collaborative space to shine and support each other.
THE LATEST + GREATEST
To be clear, pivoting hasn't been as fun as the gifs above. We spent a painstakingly long time on design, which ended in a severed Ukrainian partnership and us employing the unmatched talent and patience of our co-founder, Leanna, who taught herself UX design in just over 2 months - and just wait until you see it!! #proudparents
BUT, WE STILL NEED YOUR SUPPORT (+ HUGS)
We've gotten to this point thanks to a TON of help and support from YOU. We cannot thank you enough for the advice, likes, attendance, motivational talks, introductions + more, that we've received along the way.
