Show Notes

  • Be flexible and open to change.

  • Push forward through the challenges.

  • Always Do your best.

  • It’s not always about the flowers. The event world includes all areas of the industry.

  • Don’t cut yourself short by assuming what your customer will spend.

  • If you have a limited budget it’s better to make one or two big statements rather than doing several smaller things.
