PostSubject: Business.... And why I suck at it!   Mon Nov 22, 2010 2:10 pm

During the week I have a course lesson at mandai, 1st thing in the morning. I always make a point of being early, so no matter the occasion my student is never waiting for me.

Well student did not show up! I message x many....

Leaving I get a call... So sorry this and that....

Ok I say no problem, I know in life s**t happens....

Today I am in Hawker Centre.... Aunty comes over she must be 900 years old..

She is selling packets of tissue, I feel sorry for her so order 2.... Give her $1... She tell me is $1.20 Shocked

I say no way and give one packet back expecting 40c change, the Aunty keep my $1 and walk to next table...

Aunty, I need you to be my business manager... Beer

Dun feel bad... at least you are in control of situation. You were early and that shows u are responsible. U know the auntie was asking too much... you have awareness. So you have control. It has nothing to do with being suck at business.

But... next time ask first lah "how much"! Haha...
