Walking by faith has seemed to be what I have been doing for the last couple years daily.
Recently it has to my attention that my integrity was attacked through social media platforms on face book from an ex partner and others, choosing not to come to me privately but to use this attack to bully what I stand for and who I am. When I found out the source it was really no surprise and also the reason why I released her as a business partner. I will not get into the details of such things that have been construed by this source, except to say they are not true, people that talk about others without basis, are always guilty of something, maybe the same things or worse but I will not lower myself to such a low level and shall leave that to my competition. It is after all no real surprise for it is always those you try to help that end up doing the most ugly things to those that help them. The lies are a waste of my time and baseless. There is a reason that I no longer have a partner in my business, a reason I choose not to work with this particular group of artists and vendor women. I have grounded my business and my family on integrity and faith and that will be how I continue as I move forward with my business. I will only surround myself and network with businesses and vendors who share the same goal of integrity.
The most important thing to me are my clients, not my competitors. My clients are what matters to me and their individual satisfaction. My family is what matters to me, providing for my beautiful little boys.
I'm defending myself only by saying that from the beginning my clients have been satisfied. I have had my share of Bridezillas lol and one can't always make everyone 100% happy, but over all I have had the most amazing clients and have enjoyed working with them so very much. I only know of three clients in over 220 clients over the years who had any issues, which to me is a great success.What business can say that out of a couple hundred clients? Only three brides have not given full five star reviews. I'm human, not perfect, take responsibility for those reviews or issues, and would question any business person that had A+ across the board. I love my clients, I have always been there for them and will continue to put them first.
Have I been hurt through this? Absolutely, to a level I did not dream could happen!!! But, I still love these people and don't wish them ill...Mostly, I feel sorry for those who need to draw attention to themselves by slandering and bullying me.................. Construing one lie after the next lie, then finding others to gang up and become "a mean girls club". Their marketing ( " don't hire her, she's blah blah blah, I'm warning you...blah blah....hire me...pick me pick me....over here" ). That is not the way to do business. I think that their behavior in these actions, shows people the very truth, it is a direct reflection of how these people treat others, and tells their real character and why I refuse to work with them. This intern, has caused much anger toward me personally hence the attacks.
So my truth is here, I am an open book. You want answers to any questions you have?? I will meet you, most gladly, meet you for a cup of coffee , I am open......moving forward, staying positive, and putting my clients and family first. At least at this point in my life I know who I can trust, work with, and be close friends with.
Yours Truly and Blessings,
