PTM 036 – Teaming Up with a Friend to Start a Business with Erin Mavian and Kym Pitlor of Blueprint Proposals

Part Time Money PodcastErin Mavian and Kym Pitlor, two friends with entrepreneurial minds, saw a need in the wedding planning market. It wasn’t in the planning of the wedding itself, but in the actual proposal. Guys needed help creating a memorable event and making it happen, and Mavian and Pitlor had the skills to help them.

So a year ago, they began a part-time business called Blueprint Proposals, a boutique service designed to help their clients propose well.

Erin and Kym were able to take their desire to work together, along with the things they did daily in their 9-5 careers, and employ them to create a business that has the potential to become their full-time jobs in the very near future.
