Being the boss has it’s obvious perks. You make your own hours, you earn the profits, and you also make the decisions. Making decisions comes with risk. Sometimes you have to risk turning down a job. As an event planner who also owns the business, I determine what jobs will suit us and what jobs won’t. Not all weddings are a good fit. Not all clients and planners are meant to do business. You have to weigh all the information. Will this job even be feasible? Will cost more to plan it than we will make from it? Will the client be a good fit for our company? You have to ask yourself…’Am I willing to stake my reputation on this job?
