my 'immediate' super stole an account, i expressed my disapproval, fairly agressively. The owner Can't stand up to said supervisor. Basic BS, really, it's much more than that, though. All NOT reflecting anything negative on my performance. Heck, they didn't even really give me a good reason, only 'not working out' -- FYI, i was giving my 2-wk on 06/05.

correct, I've had my custs contact ME, already. No, not really worried, i know the industry well, this place had nothing 'magical' or 'secretive' that'll be of any secret to my success, professionally. Argghh, minor hiccup, though.

It's all perspective, and I hope you'll see it that way.

Many of us probably thought we had a bad day today, or at least had something bad happen. You were fired, I got in a hurry and chopped a multi-stitch wound in my hand.

A friend on one side of me had his father who lives on the other side of me, die yesterday. This morning, my life long, good friend was working on the farm with his father, who was killed a few feet from him. They, are having bad days.

We can get a new job, and make up a better story about our bad days.

I took my kids out to Iowanian-Mountain for Iowani-dad appreciation evening.

It's all perspective. Hang in there.

I will take a diet coke :thumb:

I liked beer a tad too much and had to quit it. I'd love one though, trust me i would. LOL

But, CONGRATS Monty, that's great news to hear.

If you don't mind me asking, how did you start your business? How did you determine your market? Did you have expendable capital or did you finance it? I realize these are somewhat personal questions so I understand if you don' want to divulge the info.
