Today we’d like to introduce you to Starr Perry.
Hello my name is Starr*, I’m from Los Angeles, CA, proudly born and raised!!! This year I am happy to announce that #TheGiftSquad will be celebrating five years!! I have always wanted to start my own business, but I also wanted to be an RN. Once I was settled into my nursing career i felt it was time to start my business. I started the business as a personal shopping company that would also include coordinating & planning events. I’ve always been interested in everything arts & crafts, planning parties and having fun. I was constantly trying out new ideas and products with The Gift Squad. I had some success, but honestly, not much. It wasn’t until I started offering Balloon Decor that The Gift Squad started to really take off. I never gave up and I always had positive expectations for The Gift Squad. Some years I only had a hand full of jobs! I believe I got to where I am today by hardworking hard, not giving up, & most importantly believing in myself and the company! Just within this last year, I’ve had to hire part-time and occasional employees. I even purchased a van due to the growth of the company!
The Gift Squad is a creative, fun company. At this point, I would say we specialize in Balloon Art and decor. I can officially say “we” have done all types of parties and events. Creating events and art are about the only things or work that I have no problem waking up early in morning to do. I believe what sets me apart from others is that you will always get more than you paid for! I will not leave an event or stop working on a project until I am satisfied and it is to my liking!
Yes absolutely!!!! i would say learn from everyone! On social media follow all types of companies in the field that you desire to work in! Don’t be afraid to asks questions, yes you may get some doors closed in your face, but don’t give up, always remember your goals and know that it is always ok to change things up and try new ideas!!! You fail when you don’t try!! Carpe Diem!!
