I have a small advertising firm that I thought I might lose last year.
- With the economy grinding to a near halt, most companies were cancelling their business left plus right.
In addition to this, I had loyal staff that have been with me right from the start that I wanted to be sure that they still had work. It was a spot that all the air conditioning in the world wouldn’t keep me from dripping with sweat. Ultimately, the end goal was to send everyone home to work in the safety of the air conditioning of individual homes. And I had to ask everyone to dig deep on some spending cuts. To fuel the payroll, I took no paycheck for the year plus lived off our savings plus our wifey’s salary. There was no way I was asking everyone to keep working from the air conditioning of home for less without doing that plus more myself. The charming thing was that we saved the business plus really turned a profit. I immediately turned that profit right back to our staff through bonuses plus heating, ventilation, plus A/C substitute in our newly reopened office. I had the heating, ventilation, plus A/C business do their magic to our existing heating, ventilation, plus A/C device so the two of us could care about zone controlled heating, ventilation, plus A/C throughout the office. This had been really an overdue heating, ventilation, plus A/C substitute. Our office really is an open area that spans a single floor of an office building. However, up until the zone controlled heating, ventilation, plus A/C was installed, there had been only a single temperature control for the whole office. That just didn’t work unquestionably well. So I was happy to see how excited everyone was to have 5 zone control heating plus cooling units throughout our office now.
