I'm Sorry You Feel That Way

We all have our Achilles heel in our business, mine just happens to be feeling the need to satisfy every employee. I absolutely hate it when someone leaves the practice; I can’t help but take it personally. In my logical mind I know that I always do the best I can to help others but it’s not always enough.

I have everything from Tribe of Mentors, Originals, The Ideal Team Player, Top Secret to Twilight.  If you were to look at my bookshelf, you would notice one thing right away; that's the twenty-five copies of Profit First directly in the center of the shelf.
