I’m going to tell you the end of the story before I begin. I suggested to my boss to not support an event that was probably going to end up supporting a worthy cause. Why? Disorganization and admittedly rookie mistakes on the part of the organizers.

Rest in peace Milka.

If I hire a plumber to install a new sink in my bathroom, can I tell them how I want the pipes run? If an electrician is running a new plug to power up a bigger air conditioner, can I tell them where to run that line down to my basement? When I go to the doctor, am I “allowed” to self-diagnose?
Then how can clients tell us how to do X – with X being anything we’re a professional in producing? … Continue reading
