It can get overwhelming to start your Bar Mitzvah planning in the Washington DC-area. So often I see busy parents who don’t know what to do, do nothing at all. Sadly, burying your head in the sand won’t keep your child’s Bat or Bar Mitzvah date from coming.
So how do you get started? Well, first make your list. Then make a phone call or send an email. An event management company like Pop Color Events is a good place to start for the overwhelmed, stressed parent. I can walk you through every step of the way. I like to tell parents that I’m like a coach for your Bat or Bar Mitzvah planning. I help to break down the process into manageable pieces, so you can take it one step at a time. I help you pace yourself throughout the planning, so it stays slow and steady throughout. That means the feeling of overwhelm won’t haunt you throughout the process. I’ll be there telling you what needs to happen and when, giving you advice and making sure you’re doing things right.
I understand that sometimes getting started can be the toughest part. But here’s some tough love: you just need to do it. Make the phone call. Send the email. Get started. The momentum of making your list will get you going and a planner will keep the ball rolling.
