Royally Bad Day

Small business tip of the day:  If you find yourself waking up on Monday, thinking that you have finally climbed on top of things and everything is humming pretty well, expect a torpedo to hit you.  Maybe several. 

The red lights are all flashing here and the bulkheads are leaking.  Blogging will be light for a couple of days, while damage control progresses. 


  1. Mike Baird:

    All too true.

    I don't think I have ever, at the end of any given day, accomplished what I originally set out to do that morning.

    When I was a salesman, calling on guys like myself, I thought most business owners were completely unorganized. Now that I am a business owner, I find I was correct. But now I have an understanding of why.

    If I ever give this up, I believe I will a much better salesman.

  2. Jim Collins:

    Is the ship in danger of sinking or can damage control keep it afloat.

    When you made the torpedo statement, my first thought was that when I use that statement my problem usually involves a backed up sewage system. It usually leaves me up to my neck in sh*t.
    Sounds like you might be in the same situation metaphorically speaking.
