Tips on Tipping

I've had several clients tell me lately that they read articles about not tipping if the person providing the service is the owner of that business.  I'm actually quite surprised at that thought.  The person who cuts my hair is the owner of the salon yet I still tip her.  The massage therapist - on the rare occasion I get to go - owns his own business, but I still tip him.  Why is it different in the event industry?

What people don't realize is that the owners of the business are the ones who have the higher overhead - they pay the rent, insurance, salaries of other employees, utilities, etc.  It's always your discretion and usually only for service providers, not for those who give you something tangible (although that's not always the case).  My personal rule of thumb is that if you feel that the person has done an amazing job, gone above and beyond and played a part in making your event incredible, and you are in a position to do so, gratuity is a nice way to express your thanks - whether they own the company or not.
