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.
