Inspiring Conversations with Shashonda Thompson-Graham

Today we’d like to introduce you to Shashonda Thompson-Graham.

Hi Shashonda, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
I have always loved event planning. My love for event planning heightened with the birthday of my oldest daughter. I had seen the sleepover idea on Pinterest. At the time, it was very popular in the UK. I decided to try. It was perfect fit for me because it was new to the US, allowed me to be super creative, and a perfect niche for me as I specificallly enjoy kids’ events. Here I am three years later and still enjoying creating sleepovers and follow for ways to expand my business.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
As any business, there has been some challenges. There has been some challenges. Marketing!!! As a new business, trying to get my name out there was a challenge for me. Marketing is something I have to continue and work through on daily basis.

Is there anything else you’d like to share with our readers?
In my day to day career, I am very structured; I have to follow the procedures as written. Creating sleepovers allows me to use my creative side and not follow any rules. It allows me to think outside the box!
