Burnin and Learnin......

It was a wonderful work day....things were going well....business was jumping and she had a full day ahead of her.....but how quickly the tide can change...how quickly the day can change....as she was going to grab something for a customer she burns herself.....a real jacked up....intense burn....she checks herself...tells her manager and just keeps right on trucking but as the day goes on....the day gets worse....the burn gets worse...her skin starts to blister and bubble on her chest and all her co-workers are confused as to why she didn't go home....why she didn't go see a doctor but to be real....it never crossed her mind....she was there to work and work is what she did......fast-forward a few days....she tells her best-friend about what happened and his response surprises her.....he is actually mad at her....he thinks she can clean up...get a wind-fall of money for being injured on the job and he is now mad that she is not looking to pursue it.....there were also others who make comments about the money she had coming her way but she doesn't see it that way....she feels like she had some responsibility in the situation....she admits that she should have and could have been more careful and is just grateful the injury wasn't as bad as it could have been and all that the doctors bills and visits were taken care of by the company.....

 In today's world there is no accountability.....people always look to blame another person...looking to come up and clean up when and where ever they can never giving any thought to what it does to our society.....to our future and as a small business owner and someone who has been in the industry for many years, I have a different perspective.....an inside track.....so I ask you guys....how in the world are you supposed to run any kind of successful business if you can't count on your employees to do their due diligence.......you screen...interview...give a solid....informative manual and training as to how things work.....on how to work smart and safe AND you pay them but it's never enough cause as soon as they can....they are going for your juggler and taking all they can...

But this little lady is a great example for all....she kept right on trucking and never paid any attention to what the masses say....she knew that there was more promise and future in looking to do the right thing for all parties involved....looking to look out for people who have looked out for her....not to mention showing love to the business community as a whole.....fast forward.....that little lady is doin her thing.....she has continued to stay positive.....to stay beautiful and that's even with a huge scare on her chest from the burn....although she will tell you that it wasn't easy....there were many times that she questioned her choice....especially during the healing process...it was painful and long but she made it and it reminds her of all the times that she's made it through other things...through things she never thought she would but she made it and through all those experiences and the burn she has truly learned so much....and the icing on the cake....those who she looked out for...looked out for her and hooked her up with a killer promotion with a killer salary making way more than she would have gotten lookin for the come-up......
