I have had one of those days that make action-oriented people mad with insanity. I had my trip to the Bay Area “postponed”, because I am only able to meet with one client.
I hear managers out there going good! Until they hear that:

  1. It is one of the company’s largest clients
  2. The Account Manager for the area just left the company
  3. They are key to our strategic focus for one of our major products

So, to save a couple of hundred dollars, they scrubbed my meeting. And this is supposed to make me feel good about going out and getting a feel for what customers want, without having it go through the Marketing or Management filters.
I am feeling…abandoned is a good way to describe the way I feel today.
Time to figure out another pay to pay the bills.
