Dear FVO,

I am a professional event planner and I have been in the business for about 2 years. However, when big events come my way, I shy away because I am afraid that I’m not ready to handle big events just yet, am I being stupid by doing this, I really need the business to stay in business!


Hello Naomi,

Congratulations on 2 years and going strong! The decision of not taking on more than you can handle is a good one, I’m a believer in starting small and organic growth, it is better to turn down a job than to take it on and mess it up, even your clients will respect you for it, however you may want to consider collaborating with other planners who share the same values as you to execute the events but make sure you have a solid agreement in place before you do anything.

Good luck!
