What a sh*t show!

How to take a few steps forward and make sure you don’t step onto the next dog’s or any other animal’s poo while you’re driving the sales, teams and all the show forward.

A bit sarcastic? Possibly. Sulky? Possibly.

It’s your friendly neighbourhood CEO slash amateur comedian here ready to dish out some tasty tips when the business life takes you on a rollercoaster. Because let’s face it – we’ve all been there wondering how on earth you’ve found yourself there without any safety net beneath your feet.

What exactly constitutes this sh*t show, you may ask. It’s the magical time when everything hits the fan – your stockings go down, your coffee machine goes on strike, sorry, takes industrial action, your top employee announces they are leaving you and the rest of the team breaks your heart the moment you enter the office door.
But fear not, my dear friends! I have some pearls of wisdom for you here.

1. Embrace the chaos! Adapt like the chameleon and remember laughing at your own mistakes is the only thing that can save you.
2. Find your Rysio (Rysio is the name of our beloved handyman) – remember, you’re not all alone down in the dumps. They will be a shoulder to cry on.
3. Follow Scarlett O’Hara’s philosophy of life – simply go to sleep and you will think about this sh*t tomorrow. Or never.
4. Find your inner Zen-master: picture this: sitting crossed-legged on your office desk (make sure the door is locked), surrounded by a sea of paperwork, chanting “om” like your life depends on it. Never mind the sound of incoming mail. Please check if the desk is going to handle it or you may end up in E.R. but without Goerge Clooney there!

So, there you have it – my not-so-expert advice on how to survive when the world is not your oyster but is more chaotic than the toddler’s birthday party. 

Remember: when life gives you lemons, make a margarita and propose a toast to life.
