I knew it was going to happen at some point.
The business has been going down hill for the past few years.To the point that the owner quit.
Yea he quit and got a job with his nephew and left the remaining 4 employees to struggle on.
But he still had all the control. We were not allowed to change anything.

Well I'm not a total moron, I started my own appliance repair business.
I snatched his only appliance repair account because I will drive farther and complete the jobs quicker.
That left him with a few tv repair accounts. They just didn't care about appliances.

Well he found out.
The axe fell today. He said it was a slap in the face.
I guess that's 40 years of tv repair down the drain. Ha!
He killed commission 15 years ago.
Last raise of any kind 2007.
Retirement account not fully funded. He claims otherwise.

It's been tough working during the day and then again at night.
But now have time to go after one of his tv accounts.

Sorry to her about the troubles with your former company/boss. I wish you the best in getting things stabilized as quickly as possible. Sounds like this may be a blessing in disguise.

One of the hidden reasons for being good to the customers when you work for someone else: if you start your own business when you see your current company folding, those customers will seek you out.

Good luck. I hope everything works out well for you. You deserve it for putting up with a creep like that.

The short term downside of change is the uncertainty.

The long term upside of change is the potential is limitless.

Good luck to you !

I myself was in a similar situation a few years back. It was a bad situation but it turned into a blessing. It was teriffiing but also a big weight off my shoulders. Good luck in your new adventure.
