The pink slips went out to the lower level employees such as secretaries, kitchen staff, accountants and maintenance. I believe we’ve already just sold over 50 anyway, some of the real expensive ones, as well, which is really quite amazing.
You can learn a lot from a bottle of soda when it comes to stress in the office. If things are too relaxed, it may be a like pop that has gone flat. Ideally you need a little bit of “fizz.” Deadlines and urgency are good for making sure that your team gets things done.
You see, cruise ships are like small cities – they have jobs ranging from store clerks to janitors, cooks to waiters and waitresses, doctors, accountants, and of course the deck crew and engine crew. But there are many, many more jobs than this; the list is long, but if you can think of the types of jobs you would find in a small town, you’ll probably find it on a cruise ship.
There is a widespread misunderstanding that you need some kind of inside connection in order to break into the cruise ship industry. This is categorically false! All it takes is getting your resume in front of the right eyeballs, landing the interview, and being well prepared for the interview by having studied and learned a few things about the hospitality industry – which is what cruise ships are.
Yes, they do, but not on your own. You couldn’t sell a small business based on their advice alone. They tell you who you need to hire to get the job done, and what you need to know to competently oversee your hired advisors.
Now we go back to the 180 Trillion dollars that run through the Federal Reserve every year. Remember how big that number is because it is very important. What if there was a four percent transaction fee on every dollar that went through the treasury every day. That would equal 7.2 TRILLION dollars. For the year of 2009 the federal budget is an estimated 3.1 TRILLION dollars. That would leave a 4.1 TRILLION dollar surplus to pay down debt or stimulate the economy. Personally the word surplus scares me a bit. Politicians usually just buy votes with the extra money and don’t really accomplish anything with it. I have a solution for that later on. I think you will like it.
It’s obviously not going to be as popular as Emerson, Lake and Palmer, because that was a long time ago. Prog rock music will never be popular. I’m more of a delicatessen. Then, we were more of a supermarket.
Make sure you have a telephone number to an actual human being. Twenty four hours a day. Imagine the aforementioned contractor assuring you that if there’s a problem with your location teleporting out of existence you can feel free to drop him a line. Just write him a note and leave it in the hole where your business was and when your business gets back he’ll be sure to read it. Don’t be that guy emailing customer service that your site is down when customer service’s site is down too.
