I just got off the phone with one of my employees.  She is self destructing before my eyes and she doesn’t even see it.  I have a very low tolerance for trash and tonight along with the past couple of weeks she has tested all of it.  I give everyone the opportunity to be themselves but we still have a job to do.  The holidays are supposed to be a time to rejoice.  Instead I’m left with a long line of people that must be replaced in order to make the transition.  To make matters worst I have to replace them to justify my own existence.  I tell my people, “Everyday, we have to show our employer that we should be welcomed back the following day.”

It’s hard being a leader.  But a leader I must be.  I set the tone and the example because literally that is my shop.  I’m shaking my head because I’ve been where a lot of these young people  have been.  But I’ve been told a fool can only learn from their own mistakes.  They don’t learn from the mistakes of others.  So, while I was trying my best to get through Christmas without firing anyone it looks like I’m about to make that happen this very week.  Firing 2 and demoting another.  Wow.  Praise God for integrity.

Now that I look at this the title simply doesn’t fit.  I love what I do.  Even self employed there is a good chance I’d be going through this on my own.  At least I have a strong support system.  Time to sound the alarm.
