A social media user by name Ephriyie has shared the success story of her event planning business to the world and all those who dream of taking the business route.
Madam Ephriyie is a former student who got the idea of starting an event planning business in her third year at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi.
Madam Ephriyie in a Twitter post, said that she started her business with no idea that it will grow into a beautiful brand. She said for her first one year in the business, she had no business offers coming her way until the second year she started getting jobs & juggled them alongside her national service.
The brand, Rachelle Events deals in event planning, production and management. Rachelle Events plans special events such as weddings, funerals, anniversaries, and many others.
Madam Ephriyie revealed that there were a lot of hitches especially when COVID-19 first hit the business, they had to postpone and cancel, and refund some events but amidst all she is grateful the business is now booming.

“When I started my business in my 3rd year in KNUST I had no idea that it will grow into beautiful brand. The first full 12 months I had no business until the second year I started getting jobs & juggled them alongside my national service.
There have been a lot of ups & downs through out this period. Heart warming messages from satisfied clients to canceled bookings to rain destroying equipment to sacking staff to getting new ones & all the other things in between I am still here ! Rachèlle Events is still here.
God has been faithful.I appreciate those who have been with me from the beginning till now. I appreciate those who left along the way & to my new cheerleaders let’s go hard. In the next 7 years you are looking at a global multinational brand that will stand the test of time.
When first covid wave hit the business it was one of the most difficult times ever but we managed to sort out all the clients – we had to postpone some events , cancel & refund other due to uncertainty.”
