A Dressing Down From My Wife (Business Lesson Inside)

September 18, 2022

Might come as a surprise, but I do not tolerate people who take advantage or take the piss – especially when it comes to payment.

Now despite having processes in place, I recently got fucked over by a private client. 

Someone who I thought had higher standards and a better moral compass.

Turns out I was wrong on both counts. 

Needless to say, when I found out, the language was foul and the rage was intense. 

Now, I don’t know about you, but me, and when it comes to a business that you’ve built from the ground up – you protect it like family. 

Someone does something to hurt it?

…You go for the jugular.

Which in my mind is a scorched-earth policy that aims to seek and destroy.

Anyway, as I was going full bore, Emma (my wife) was in the room – and she was pissed off. 

… At me!

Her words:

“Charlie – ENOUGH! The only person you’re screwing over in this moment is YOU…. and me, having to listen to it. Make a plan. Move forward. End of.” 

Turns out I’d been simmering for over an hour. 

A dick move on my behalf. 

Because here’s the thing that you and I would be wise to remember…

… In this game, it’s all too easy to vent at family. 

Trouble is, there comes a point where venting does nothing but spread more shit.

And right now, I suspect, at home there’s already enough shit to be dealing with.

It’s why after Emma had dressed me down, I took a breath.

I apologised. 

Then I got a plan together. 

Something along the lines of – don’t get mad, get even.

Worked like a charm.
