Working on my Term Paper

While many people are enjoying their well-deserved Christmas break, I have been working on my term paper for my introduction to business class at college.  I had enrolled back in September for this class as I was considering getting a commerce degree, and so far I like it. But the one thing that I have …

Cleaning Up our Company Image

After a big mess caused by one of our employees a couple of weeks ago, the story was picked up by the newspaper and a couple of television stations in the area and all of a sudden we had a public relations nightmare on our hands. We didn’t know what to do. Since we had …

Fixing the Steering Racks on my Car

I don’t know why I love my car so much as it has been nothing but trouble for the last six months.  It is getting to the point where I am questioning why I haven’t replaced it with a newer vehicle.  But it has been my “baby” for so long that it is hard to …

Visiting Family in Croatia for Christmas

There have been a lot of changes …

Setting Up our California Office

Since we had a stellar year in 2015, we have been looking to expand our operations out of state.  We toyed with the idea of franchising our stores, but for the time being we are going to only expand on our own.  While franchising the operation would certainly be lucrative, management doesn’t feel that we …

Blowing Off some Steam

Working with the public frustrates me.  When you consider that our business depends on the relationship that we have with our customers, you know that we have to hold our tongues from time to time.  While this might seem easy to do, anyone who has worked in customer service knows that “being nice” all of …

Doing Some Home Renovations in the New Year

While I love my home that I have been in for the last five years, there are just some things that I would like to change.  For example, I have always wanted a theater room in the house, a large open office, and I would love to move my laundry upstairs.  But I know that …
