A Few of my Favorite Things…

August 3, 2016

I am fully aware that shipping information, while good and valuable to many, is not something we curl up at night to read about. It is a necessity, not something that is fun or relaxing. Very little of my job is relaxing, but much of it is fun!

Even more of it is meaningful.notary

A woman came in the other day – I had never met her before, it was her first time in my store. She was practically bouncing on the balls of her feet and suddenly burst out “I’m celebrating tonight!” I said, “Oh, wonderful, what are you celebrating?” She went on to tell me that a job had just opened up and she’d had a wonderful interview for it. Her dream was to be a child oncologist. I remarked that must be a difficult job and she said, “Well, I was a sick child, so I think I can do good.”

It was dust in my eye, I swear it. In fact, it is now, too, as I recollect the event.

Every day I get to meet people like this. One thing I tell my customers is “People are wonderful if you give them the chance.”

So, yes, the nuts and bolts of my business involves DHL, FedEx, UPS, USPS… It’s copies and scanning and faxing, notary and mailbox rentals and… the list goes on and on. But at the end of the day, that’s not what makes me feel happy and fulfilled. And as corny as it may sound, that’s what has enabled me to work 6 days a week for the past 6 years without completely running myself into the ground. I love being that little part of people’s lives. some joyous, some heart-breaking, but they feel they can confide in me and that’s…priceless.
