The unflattering reality of running a small business

October 2, 2015

A funny story about the unflattering side of running a small business:

I operate a small rural marina with a very small staff. I was having a telephone consultation with a high level political strategy consultant this week and the call went over an hour. We were discussing some lofty ideas that would involve millions of dollars. I said “I need to wrap this up because today is trash day and I need to get to the dump before they close.” She just laughed and said “Wait, you handle the accounting and business strategy and TRASH?” I said “Yes, and the gardening, and most of the mechanical repairs and anything else that I can’t find anyone else to do”. That’s the reality of running a small business!
