I love music and attend a lot of concerts. Music is always playing in my house, my car or van and on the job……… There are certain tunes that I can’t get out of my head.
One of my favorite songs is “With a Little Help From My Friends”, not the Beatles version but the one by Joe Cocker.
Over the years I have been blessed with great friends, some over 30 years and others a shorter time. Each has been there for me and I have been there for them. I am sure you know what I am talking about.
Through out my business life I have always tried to treat my suppliers and clients or customers not as just a number but as a new friend. It is so much easier when you’re working with friends, right !
Balloon decor is a personal thing…………..it should fit the personality of who I am going to work with or for…… as I see it friends should know the little things about each other.
I always want to know more about them, sometimes the questions I asked might seem strange but it really helps me find out what their personalities are like.
When I am doing an event, it is personal and should be designed to fit my new friend to a “T”. I want them to walk into the room and have them say “WOW, this is just perfect”.
Friendship is a two way street, while I truly enjoy making people happy campers. They also make me a happy camper by passing my name around to their friends…….
One of my Mitzvah Mom’s years ago told me she passes my name around like cracker jacks……. that phrase still brings a smile to my face.
My new friends also challenge me and my crew to create new and different designs………keeping my work fresh. I thank them for that.
Friendship is not limited to my customers or clients……my suppliers who I have done business with for lots of years have helped make my business what it is today.
Thanks to Jack, Mike and Imogene, Albert and Neil, Bill, Paul and Lex……..without you, I would have been out of business long ago.
Now, you know why the song “With a Little Help From My Friends” means so much to me and I can never get it out of my head……..
