Many of you know that I work a full-time job in addition to trying to get the distillery up and running. During my day I’m allowed two 10 minute breaks and a 1/2 hour lunch. As soon as those bells ring I push my work off to the side and grab my distillery stuff. I always have my thumb-drive plug into my computer–which I love this portable technology.
Friday, on my first morning break, at 8:30 AM, I google for an “old man” picture to send to our graphic guy. I needed the moonshine label to show the bank. I want our moonshine label to say “Grandpa’s Likker”. The mission was succesfull…10 minutes. Except I never got it sent. But the picture is saved on my thumb-drive.
My lunch break I started to print documents to put a packet together for our meeting with another graphic designer and marketing guy. I created a couple of pages to show what the tasting and plant will look like. I also emailed a bottle contact to get some sample bottles to show the bank. It’s amazing how fast a 1/2 hour goes by.
Second break… start 3-hole punching my documents to put in a binder. Finished the tasting room page!
Quitting time… I need to finish my business plan folder for the graphic guy meeting. Dang!!! The index tabs labels aren’t printing right. Never fails when you’re in a hurry a challenge arrives. I had 10 minutes to get it right before I had to leave to pick up Dave at home so we could head back to Skookum Brewery to meet the new graphics guy. On my way home I passed Dave that was parked at a neighbor’s house. I had to do a ‘U’y and remind him I was picking him up at home–now!
Awe….. 4:30 PM made it to Skookum on time and ready for a relaxing beer…… ok now back to business meeting with the graphic guy.
8 PM— Home and done for the day.
