Meet Casa Yun

Today we’d like to introduce you to  Casa Yun. Them and their team share their story with us below:

Hi Casa, thank you for sharing your story with me – can you please start by bringing us up to speed on how you got to where you are today, both personally and professionally.
How do I get where I am today? Humph, by Faith! The hardest thing I’ve ever done in life is believe in myself. It’s like moving mountains of doubt, criticism, not thinking I was good enough, and of course, the fear of failure. With that, I also had to believe in my brand; an intangible vision that for a long time only I could see. I swear for a long time, I looked and felt foolish, but once I sharpened my relationship and walk with GOD, I knew my steps were ordered and it was so much easier to walk by faith. Believe it or not, one day I just woke up and said “It’s all or nothing.” I walked in and quit my job as an “College Admissions Advisor” and started the path as an entrepreneur at ground zero. With no big bank loans or capital funding to back me, I up and moved to Atlanta in August of 2019. Never in my wildest dreams did I fathom we’d enter a pandemic and my career move would be stagnated for two years but I never lost sight of my calling. If anything, it gave me time to align and prepare for what was to come both mentally and spiritually.There’s a lot that goes into being an event host. It’s not as simple as people think. From planning, preparation, and organization the functions to events to coordinating food, entertainment for attendees, procuring opportunities for vendors and creating a positive, relaxed atmosphere where guests can enjoy themselves…you wear many hats, and its extremely hard when you’re all you’ve got! The blessing of reliable staff and support have been my greatest acquisitions and I am excited for what the future with Casa Yun events looks like! My advice to anyone in pursuit of their dreams? Take the shackles off your feet and leap! Whatever that means to you. I could recover from leaving my job, but I could never recover from not pursuing my dream. I want to inspire a nation of non-believers and self-doubters by saying, if I can do, it anyone can.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Absolutely not! There’s no smooth road to success. There are pot holes of pity and debris of doubt. It’s a long drive! I think they call it sacrifice road, right there at the corner of tears, fears, trial, error and perseverance. Only the strong survive. Regardless of where you are on that road, there are people who are doing the same thing as you, some even doing it better and at times that can be discouraging. But the truth is, if you stay true to your vision you’ll realize other people’s success is your proof that there’s a space for you.  The best thing you can be a part of is a network of likeminded individuals who stretch and push you to keep moving forward.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
Yes. Casa, (short for Casandra) is my first name, Yun, comes from ******, which means *******. I am a Fashion show producer, event host coordinator and woman of God. I put him in the midst of everything I do and make sure that that is seen and felt by anyone who books my services. All I can say is I am just getting started and the best is yet to come!
