The Jake Files

Filed under: Chandler,Economy & Business,Entrepreneurship,Self-employment,Work — Amazing Jake @ 9:49 pm

Today was my first working day as a business owner.  The dust of Corporate America will no longer cling to MY feet!

Of course, everything didn't go as planned.  After 13 1/2 hours, I got to see the kids and the Amazing Mrs. Jake for about a half hour before they all went to bed. The delivery van was backed into in a hit-and-run in the parking lot last night, so the former owner and I have to figure out whose insurance pays for the damage.  I also found out that two key employees will be leaving at the end of June, so I've only got a few weeks to learn the business, then train replacements.

But, the good news is, I came home with a lot of cash and checks to deposit tomorrow.  And, I don't have any useless meetings to attend tomorrow, nor do I have to answer to anyone but my customers. 



  1. Congrats! I hope your business has great success. 🙂

  6. Switzerland did the right thing by banning these minarets. If Arab/Muslim countries do not allow Christian churches to be built, then why should Christian couintries allow Muslim mosques???? We are living in a world of pluralism, Arab nations shouyld recognized that Christians who are living in their countries are humans too, and not dogs. Shame on Europeans for cowering and catering to these Muslim bandits. Most Europeans are afraid that’s why. You get what you deserved if you do not protect Christian rights as well. Come on
