At some point in your event planning career, you may get that nagging feeling that you aren’t good enough or that you are “faking” it. Sometimes this happens after a new event planner books her first paying client or after an event planner books an event that is much bigger (more detailed, bigger decor, higher budget) than she or he has ever done.
Unless you are actually lying about your skills or experience, there is absolutely no reason to think you aren’t good enough or that you are “faking” it as a professional planner. You have certain skills you can offer your clients. Whether or not you appreciate your skills, other people can and will.
Maybe you aren’t a “10” on the sliding scale of experience but even if your skills are a “5”, there are MANY potential clients who will appreciate your level “5” skills. Their event planning skills and knowledge are probably a “0” or “1” on the sliding scale of experience. You have the VALUE that they need. If you are good enough for them, you certainly are good enough for YOU.
