Saying the truth, saves you lots of stress and allows you, win your clients’ trust. Believe me when I say that trust is the most important trait in this business. A lot of people do think of truth to be hurtful, or that it usually sounds unpleasant in some situations. Be that as it may, it is better to speak the truth than for you to be discovered at a later date, to have told a lie which may invariably cause you to start spitting apologetic lines. With the truth comes peace of mind, maybe not particularly at the moment, but it always comes.
I have had several unpleasant experiences with some event vendors. And as an Event Planner, I appreciate vendors who are straight forward and deliver their services as promised. If you don’t have something, do not say you have it. Integrity comes from being known as a truthful person. Dishonest attitude could land you in big trouble when things go wrong, as sometimes they go.
Lying is such a distasteful act! While planning an event recently, I called for a vendors’ meeting; such one where proposed vendors who will be rendering services at the event proper, would meet. There was this particular vendor who we were all expecting. I called him at first, to know where he was...He responded saying he was on his way. An hour later, I called again, to which he responded saying he was walking down the street of the meet .We waited for over 3 hours and this vendor did not show up. It got to a point that he started ignoring my calls. I proceeded to conclude the meeting without him and we all left. Thirty minutes after the meeting had ended, he started calling my number. I decided not to pick his calls.
You will be appreciated more, if you come out clean to speak the truth.
