– Happy Tuesday everyone. Let’s see what’s on today, gotta book those
conferences, the data showed. Needed to work a lot on
Texas, and North Carolina, so I booked those principle
conferences today. Get the hotel, the airfare, the whole thing lined up just right to maximize the revenue
potential of growth there. See what else, gotta work
on a workstation for Ben. He’s taken on more responsibilities, and we’re sharing a desk essentially. Intending to get a workspace
more suitable for him. Let’s see, typical paperwork,
all that boring stuff, ordering processing, but he’s
been doing a lot of that too, because I’m working on training him to do everything it is that I do. Dropped off the kiddos at school, little man’s still crying, and then the teacher
wants him to say goodbye after I walk out to the fence, and I think that only makes it worse when he was starting to calm down already. Either way I think we’re making progress. A couple months ago, I
had Ben do some digging on the customer history to find people that are big fans of something for a surprise and delight campaign. He found a particular principal
that ordered some earbuds, $55 worth of earbuds,
that was a big Cubs fan, and happened to win the World Series. So inside of this I’m sending to that particular principal, a signed Chris Bryant, World Series. Not using the World Series, but marked World Series
Baseball, it costs like $300, and it’s disproportionally
greater than what she spent on purpose, because she’s
gonna tell this story forever, of the company that sent
her a Chris Bryant baseball, when she spent far less with us. At the bank, depositing some
checks, eager to get here, I had one of the larger
ones from that big, huge library order for 19,000 earbuds, a month ago, they paid real fast, so eager to get that check deposited, post office after this, and then back to the grind. I never like coming to the post office, but do like getting stacks of checks. We do a lot more paperwork
when orders are fast, so I had to get some paper
here at Office Depot, and I been talking about
a new monitor for awhile. I think with a bigger
monitor I can work faster, Ben can work faster. Getting older, eyes aren’t
as sharp as they used to be. Running around, getting
airfare, hotel booked for these next two conferences, hectic, a lot of money being spent today. Always juggling, Dad,
businessman, husband, I’ll be picking up the
little man from school a few minutes early, to
get a haircut for him before we take a little
lady to gymnastics, and if timing goes okay
then we can just take her instead of the whole
family, a little bit easier a lot easier with dinner and
schedules and stuff like that, but gotta be flexible. Still waiting on a big
earbud shipment coming in hopefully in the next week or so, tens of thousands of earbuds. And in the meantime,
Ben’s been cranking out ice bag after ice bag,
four boxes, all ice bags. Twenty-packs will sell
very well on Amazon. Rounding out the day, still waiting on the
big shipment coming in, but it’s been a lot that’s
really happened today. The monitor, the surprise and delight, the travel accommodations,
a lot of stuff and, run it again tomorrow all day long, that’s what I do every day. Dark and early, 5:00
a.m. tomorrow TD Grind.
