Meet Iman Rasheed Nihada Mehmedovic

Today we’d like to introduce you to Iman Rasheed and Nihada Mehmedovic.

Hi Iman Rasheed and Nihada Mehmedovic, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
We have been best friends since 2012, and have always had a passion for party planning and decorating. Throughout the years we found ourselves decorating family/friends events, and realized how much we loved doing it. So, in February 2022, we decided to turn our passion and love for decorating into a business.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
When we first opened our business we didn’t realize how many steps it would take to get Timeless Events up and running. If you would have asked us a few weeks ago what an LLC and EIN number was, how we would go about pricing, or knowing how to secure clients, we would not have had an answer for you. Our first step in creating this business was a stop at the bank. They explained to us how to create an LLC and an EIN number, and then helped us set up a bank account. Social media has definitely made this process easier and has helped us gain clientele. It has been a fun experience creating content for social media to help promote our business.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
The thing we are most proud of is how easy it was to turn our friendship into a business. They always say don’t mix business with friendship, but with us that wasn’t the case. It has actually brought us closer, and has been the best decision we have ever made together. We may think differently outside our business, but when it comes to our business we think the same and have the same outcome in mind, and that’s why it works so well. The most important thing we want for our clients is to feel like we understand them, and to gain their trust for us to make their dream events become reality.

What matters most to you? Why?
At the end of the day, our friendship is still number one and we will never do anything to jeopardize what we have accomplished so far. Away from our friendship, our clients’ trust is very important to us. Once you’ve established that trust, it makes everything else easier. Without trust, you can’t run a successful business.
