I own my own business. It can give you a sense of accomplishment, freedom, independence, creativity and that “entrepreneur” word that I have started to gag on.
It can also be a dangerous proposition, especially if you are a creative.
It used to be, that if a large international company gave you the shaft, you had no recourse but to lay back and take it. Not so today. Social media can kill.
My most recent interaction was bewildering. Something inexplicable happened but nobody’s talking. Especially to me. That ain’t good.
We can blame companies all day but companies are people and people are the ones who usually do the dirty work. They leave you hanging like you don’t exist.
The person I was dealing with all of a sudden is not available and I am stuck with up the front costs and I am not happy. He is the one I have a problem with.
Shit happens but he at least owes me an explanation. He knows better, believe me.
I sent my invoices in yesterday and hope they will do the right thing. Once the check clears I will exercise my on line options.That is, if the check clears.
Should have called me man. Should of done the right thing. Remember all that baloney they drilled into us at BMS? You know, the phony values thing? Remember me? How vindictive I could be?
You screwed me. Not them. You. You disappointed me. You left me hanging in Seattle once but I chose to overlook it. I told my wife about my misgivings and she thought I might be overreacting. This business teaches you gruesome lessons. I bear the scars. Always trust your gut.
I will leave you with the immortal words of Freddie King, “Be careful with a fool.”
