It is easy to let a client talk you into not bringing an assistant to their destination event. “The guest list being limited to less than 20 people” or “the resort staff will help” are just a couple of the reasons clients think the planner can do it alone.

Tune in to hear how you could learn from this and not make the same mistake they did!
