He is a professional presenter and has helped many executives during their job transitions with his ‘Building a Professional Portfolio’ session. Along with that, Frank is a beekeeper and has won national awards for his honey and creme honeys.

1. Start with a strategy. What do you want this collection of information, your Professional Portfolio, to say about you?

2. Determine which program you will use for your portfolio (e.g., PowerPoint or Word). Your document will eventually be turned into hard copy. It is not meant to be posted online.

This past summer, I got married with a destination wedding to La Quinta, California. And although there were only 12 people in attendance, there was still a lot to coordinate, plan and keep track of. Everything went as scheduled and it was all because I was organized!

To help me keep straight all the various contracts, event orders, vendors and ideas, I used an Expanding File With Handles. This was the perfect organizational tool to keep different vendors’ information separate, but still be accessible in one convenient place. Also, the chic black exterior and handles meant I could carry everything I needed to all appointments and still look stylish, a very important factor for a bride-to-be.
