Hi, my name is Billie Guinto. Founder and CEO of All Source Events LLC. I studied business management with an emphasis in entrepreneurship, and events have always played a huge part of my life. I know first-hand how challenging it is to find the right people and products to put on an event. The processes are super heavy, intense, and incredibly stressful. This journey is something that tens of thousands of others are on right now. I’ve experienced burn out many times and I know people who are still recovering. Every year vendors are tasked with doing something grand, everything must be different, and a new experience. I launched All Source Events because 80% of event workers are women who are unable to negotiate their salaries because they are not given the opportunity to be visible and are treated like Jr. employees. Women don’t get credit for their work because they don’t have a platform that showcases their talent. All Source Events gives them the ability to negotiate their salary, allocate and grow their business, and really take pride in building their own independent brands which has a direct impact on what they make.
