Double Blog Day
Regus, I’d like to Phone a Friend…
About a year ago, I called my friend Don to wish him a happy 50th birthday. We had a great visit and although 1200km now separated us, we still felt like we were just down the street again. Three days later on this very day he went to hospital with chest pains, and failed to survive the emergency heart surgery.
I know his beliefs and I know he’s in a better place, but I still miss him a lot. Do me a favor and call an old friend who you haven’t spoken to in a while. You’ll be glad you did.
You know you’ve been in this business too long when…
I went downstairs to grab a piece of packing-tape to seal a priority courier envelope. When I brought the piece upstairs, I put it on the envelope and had EXACTLY the right amount to cover the closure with PRECICELY 1” left on either side to wrap around the back-side. That’s when I realized I’ve been in this business a long time.
Email me back with your “signs that you’ve been in the jewellery business too long”. If I get a bunch of good ones, I’ll put them together for a future post.
Have a great day.
