It is certainly a blessing to be invited by Preston and Marcy into their world to be mentored by them.

I get goose bumps when I think of all that I learned and been thought so far by both of them.  They are both very honest and open about this business, and display a readiness to share.  And to just think several months ago (as silly as this sounds) I had no clue as to who Preston Bailey was, but here I am now being mentored by him and Marcy Blum.

My story about Preston, I was down at a Sandals conference in the Bahamas, and everyone was buzzing about the designer named Preston Bailey and I had no clue who they were talking about so after the 3rd night I said I have to Google to see who this person is, and then I said, “oh that guy”… Still not knowing whom exactly he was, but when I return to New York, I said I have to write him an email and ask him to mentor me since he is one of the best in the business and must have the know how.  I sent the email and the next day his CFO called me, (how about it was 11:30 at night) and said Mr. Bailey would love to someday, but can we add you to our mailing list?  And I said sure, what do I have to loose.  Never heard again from them until a January when I was sent a personal email by Mr. Bailey’s office asking me if I would still like to be mentored by him.  I said yes, and the rest is history.

Preston… what an awe inspiring designer you are, I am truly touch by your humility and your outstanding people skills.  You know the concepts of vision.  Words cannot fully express my thankfulness and appreciation to you for mentoring me.

Marcy – you are an events planning in your own league.  With all your industry knowledge and years of experience in running a very successful business I certainly admire you.  You really set the example of quality and stand for the rest of us planners!

I would really love to thank the both of you from the bottom of my heart for providing me with this unique opportunity to be mentored by the both of you.  I will forever cherish this opportunity!
