When It All Goes to Shit

The life of an event planner is probably no different than the life of anyone who makes business (or personal) plans, only to see them evaporate because does anything ever go as planned?

Sometimes nothing goes as planned, right? When I started thinking about the things in my business that have gone south, they became stories longer than Gone with the Wind, an appropriate title for this subject. Tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, winds, rain and even a volcano eruption... union strikes, cancelled flights, power outages. The list goes on.

One story captured the subject of "when it all goes wrong? ..BUT "it all turns out right" and was a great lesson. Rather than retell it, here's a link to the chapter in my book. Enjoy! And just know there is no problem that cannot somehow be solved, or any challenge that cannot be met.
