A&M Events turned 5 this year, and I am so grateful to have been a part of their anniversary event! Amanda Stone and Micaela Reed are the amazing duo behind A&M Events, and I had the chance to talk with both of them about why they started A&M Events, what they're proud of and where they see their futures.

We sat down with Micaela Reed to tell her side of A&M Events.
Tell me about the start of your business.
After majoring in Public Policy and Sociology, and subsequently realizing I didn't want to work in either of those fields, I haphazardly took a job at an event production company here in Nashville. Little did I know, I would fall in love with the world of events and meet my future business partner-in-crime, Amanda Stone. We connected over a shared love of the fast-paced work of live events, but also over a desire to plant our business' roots in Nashville.
What is your proudest moment since you started this company?
Over the last two years, our business has really grown into itself. I find myself thinking of the business as its own living breathing thing. It really is like our first child! I am so proud every day to be able to do what I love, in the city that I love, with a partner in whom I have 100% trust.
Where do you see A&M Events going in the next 5 years?
My goal for the next five years is to grow the A&E Events team. I hope to one day have a larger team of part or full time employees who all exude the A&M brand, just like Amanda and I do every day.
