I am a dinosaur, in a perfect storm


Happy Sunday I have been in produce before fax machines, before beepers, before car phones and then cell phones, before personal computers, I am a dinosaur. I have come to realize that I am not in the current mainstream of produce, much to my dismay. A few weeks ago, I spoke about loyalty. I stated it was a 2-way street, you have to give it to get it.

In this week’s video I will address this again as well as the current state of the produce business. I will also address bottom feeders and stupid competition which will all have some connection to loyalty. I will share some stories along the way that helped me shape who I am today, arguably for better or worse, depends on your point of view. All I can say at the end of the day, doing what is right is an individual’s decision. It’s not up to your boss, your supervisor it’s all on you and you will carry it throughout your career, so do what’s right.

Why 3 weeks out sales don’t work. Dollar cost averaging is a better way.

Even old dinosaurs need help sometimes. Like many of you my business has decreased significantly due to covid 19. If you are looking for some to help with your busines, I may be the right dinosaur for the job.
