Today, my clients came to our meeting prepared. They brought all the documents, the sample video, the list, and they even came with food! Whoa…how I love the sapin-sapin! I appreciate the effort they put in preparing for their presentation. What joy they bring to the meeting!

Likewise, I was delighted for their approval of my vision for their forthcoming company Christmas party. This means so much to me, specially that I plan different attacks for different themes. I take it upon myself to go beyond my comfort level. I like to stretch my imagination, ask people to perform better and look for ways to level up in props and design. I feel inspired even more when clients tell me…”bahala ka na ha, Ms. Bangs.Basta gusto namin maganda.” Those are the magic words!
I also find joy just by the thought that the CEO of the company who decides to have me for the job is a very hardworking man with impeccable standard for excellence, and yet performs his duties with full humility and consistency. I seldom see him, I do not even get to talk to him except at the end of the event, to thank him for his organization’s trust in me. But I hear words from the staff, those who are exposed to him 5 working days a week.

Planning for a 5-6 hour event takes months. But even if the cake is tested by eating it, my personal view on event planning is that, it should be a joyful journey, both for me as the planner, and my clients. It is during the months and weeks leading to the big day when relationships are formed, memories are built, and strength and weaknesses are seen. It is also during these times when my help to them is most needed. So you ask me, help for clients is not needed much anymore on the event date itself? On the event date, I perform the task according to the approved plan, and more often than not, my clients are already in their best outfits entertaining their guests, joining in the games, accepting an award, or simply drunk. So its me and my staff’s most awaited performance that is felt,
I love my job. It brings me so much joy, and for that I am truly grateful. And while I am into being grateful, I would like to share a valuable YouTube find.

Meanwhile, here’s Brian Tracy.
