Can you share a bit about your business and what you do?
Eileen: Labyrets is an event planning service. Allow us to help you capture your special occasion with our photo booth. Whatever your needs, we’ll help you get started and take care of the final details so you can enjoy your day stress-free.
Ashley: Yep, she said it all.
When and why did you decide to start your new business?
Eileen: We started Labyrets this year, but planning and creating has always come naturally for us, dating back for more than 10 years. Back in our high school leadership days and 18th birthday-cotillion planning days. Event planning was the side hustle that brought us together because we enjoyed it too much. We’ve hosted and planned events over several years for family and friends, through college and the start of our careers. We decided to officially join forces and make this business come alive.
What do you love most about running your own business?
Ashley: This has been a side-hustle AKA passion project for both of us for SO long. I get so excited that something I genuinely love doing can be a source of income and bring happiness to other people somehow. And it helps when you get to work with your best friend! No red-tape, no million obstacles, it’s whatever we want to do! That’s THE life, isn’t it? (Or, at least it should be)
Eileen: I love being able to create and design with no limitations. To collaborate and brainstorm ideas with Ash or clients and trust the process from start to finish… Everything comes together, and the end result is a beautiful masterpiece.
What are your overall goals for your business?
Ashley: Eileen and I DM’d each other about this the other week, but we really want to build our business to have unlimited resources and an OFFICE SPACE. We’re putting it on our mood board 2021-2022. But soon, I just want us to be able to build our clientele, get word of mouth out there, and become a business where people just KNOW who we are. “Labyrets, oh yeah. I know her.”
What services do you provide for anyone who may want to reach out to you/work with you?
Eileen: We’re a jack of all trades that provides all event needs! Just kidding! But seriously, we help you plan your event from start to finish. We design and style, and capture your most memorable moments so you can look back and reminisce on the good times.
Ashley: We ARE open to traveling to Southern California (additional fees apply for travel, lol). At the moment, we’re highly promoting our photo booth, so come see us!! We’re not like a regular photo booth. We’re a cool photo booth, OK?
