Although she looks every bit the stylish and red carpet-ready business diva, don’t be fooled by Darice Goodwin’s outward appearance because she will get down and dirty.
That is, get her finely manicured hands dirty in order to give you the best service as a successful event planner through her boutique firm, Perfect Success Event Management. She’ll unblock a sink and move tables if necessary, all in the interests of client satisfaction.
Founding the company in 2001, Perfect Success provides logistical support for all types of events — from meetings, training workshops, weddings and film festivals. According to Goodwin, the bulk of her work is for clients in the nonprofit sector; whether it’s afterschool programs preventing gang violence or organizing a debutante ball for young girls in the foster care system.

Place a child in a toy store with unlimited options and some will gravitate to the dolls, others the action figures, some the toy cars, but Darice E. Goodwin? She gravitated to the tea party set as she places her Barbie up at the head of the table with Ken serving hors d’oeuvres to Skipper, Strawberry Shortcake, Raggedy Ann and Andy. Goodwin is a born event planner that owns Perfect Success Event Management.
“I’ve always had an entrepreneurial spirit ever since I was a young child,” says Goodwin who admits to hosting her Care Bears and Cabbage Patch Kids at her weekly tea parties. “When I think back to how I envisioned my life and my career path, I realized that it always included being a business owner.”
