Twenty Tree Layers and DeJuan Stroud on Planning Successful Events

Event planner DeJuan Stroud who has planned many events for Donald Trump, Jon Bon Jovi and Michael Bloomberg recently stopped in Houston where he visited with reporters fromĀ Houston Culture Map. He says that there are three current trends in planning a party that organizers should wholeheartedly endorse.

The first of those trends is to provide a variety of seating options at the same event. He suggests that some possible options include long tables, round tables, banquet seating and lounge seating. Providing a variety of seating allows everyone to sit where they are most comfortable.
The second trend is to incorporate elements that will hold everyone’s attention. One possible choice is using only one type of flower in an eye appealing arrangement. He stresses that way to many people want to incorporate too many items.

A third trend is to serve food family style even for black tie affairs. This often cuts down on the cost of food since the caterer does not have to hire as many staff. Also, it allows everyone to choose the amount of food that is right for them. Serving family style can also be a great way to get guests talking to each other.

Homeowners, Renting, and Insurance Considerations

Making a little extra money is easy when you own a home, have spare rooms, and are willing to work with an online service such as Airbnb. Homeowners can rent out a room for whatever dollar amount they wish. $50 a night can turn into a solid sum when one or more rooms is consistently rented out during the week.

Do not assume that this type of deal comes with no considerations. On the Wealth Solutions blog, a warning is given to those who think they can ignore the insurance issues associated with renting out a room.

Wealth Solutions is run by Richard Blair, and he knows quite a bit about wealth management and protecting one’s assets. Blair founded Wealth Solutions to help people in need of financial advice. The basic advice offered on this blog entry definitely could help people avoid getting into serious trouble renting out a room.

Homeowners insurance can cover a wide range of different areas of liability. Does a policy cover commercial activity though? Anyone who chooses to rent out a room positively must be sure that any disaster scenarios caused by or involving a tenant are covered under the policy. If not, then a claim may be denied and a homeowner could be is serious, massive financial jeopardy. Imagine if the renter is hurt or hurts someone leading to $100,000 in liability costs. With no insurance, a homeowner could end up losing the home.

Taking steps to make sure the right insurance policy in place is strongly suggested to anyone with designs on using the property as a short-term rental. A quick call to the insurance provider could set the process of adjusting the policy in motion. The increase in the amount of the policy might not even end up being all that much. In the end, the proper amount of coverage ends up being procured and the financial security of the home is preserved.
