Meet Jillian Bobinski of Jillian Nicole Events in West Hollywood

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jillian Bobinski.

Jillian, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
It sounds kind of cheesy, but I first found my love for event planning as a Freshman in High School in New York. The class president, also a close friend of mine made me responsible for the coordination and planning of all our events, which I ended up doing Sophomore, Junior, AND Senior year! I’m a bit of a neat freak and always plan things in advance, so I knew this was perfect for me. From there, I interned at different venues while earning my bachelor’s degree at East Carolina University (Go Pirates!).

Shortly after, I made the courageous yet common leap from New York to Los Angeles to continue establishing myself in the event planning world. Pretty crazy to think I have now planned events in New York, North Carolina, Atlanta, and California. I have also been surrounded by some pretty amazing people, specifically, my father, who has been an entrepreneur for the past 35 years. While I’ve always loved event planning, I never thought in a million years that I would be starting my own business.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
No, but does anyone have a smooth road?! Everyone experiences bumps along the way, and I certainly expect to face a lot more; however, the toughest part for me was finding the courage and ideal time to start my own business. I always had a million things going on at once, but one day I finally took the leap because it’s something I always knew I wanted to do.

I’ve had a number of struggles…some small, some big. For one, setting up a website was like reading another language, I had no idea what I was doing! It was totally different from being in the corporate world where you have specific people to call on for certain tasks. I’m a one-woman army wearing a number of different hats, and I absolutely love it!

Also, like anyone starting their own company, getting business in a competitive city is a huge challenge. I had to go out and get creative, but there’s nowhere else I would rather be.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Jillian Nicole Events – what should we know?
We are a premier, full-service event planning and design company. We plan a variety of events- whether it be luxurious weddings, corporate events, kid’s birthday parties, social events, or even your proposal! Our big picture/objective lies in the details – creating events that will have our clients and their guests raving about the event for years!

I’m most proud of the personal transformation I continue to undergo and the network (clientele and other vendors) I have been able to build. It’s all about who you know!

Something that sets me apart is the multifaceted approach I take to each and every event. I have a background working with catering companies, venues, and hotels, which gives me the ability to string them all together creating the dream event in a cost-efficient manner for my clients.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
It’s all about the three P’s! Patience, persistence, and passion.
