Rebecca Aftergood - Owner
The truth is, I used to wonder constantly what I would do with my life. My father always told me "do what you're passionate about" and I would draw a blank. So I did what I knew I could do instead, and stayed in school, and got a degree... then I went back to school and got another degree, and articled, and became a lawyer. And wondered. And while I wondered I continued doing what I loved to do. I planned parties...and date nights...and various other surprises (I did yoga too). Honestly, I had known all along that I couldn't continue my legal career. I had no passion for it... it just wasn't my "thing".
One day it hit me... why don't I make a career out of something fun that I already love doing (you can see where this is going right?). I love planning events with the most anticipation, excitement, and potential for disaster. And then I finally figured it out: I am passionate about surprise! I love surprising others, and I love being surprised. And it doesn't happen that often, because surprising people is hard. It takes a lot of effort, creativity, and time that many people simply don't have. Which is a shame because it's so much fun, and is a great way to show people how much you care about them.
So I said goodbye to the law, and launched Surprise Me Events, a company dedicated to finding the magic in your special moments. I can't wait to share my love of all things unexpected with you!
