Telling the truth about SME life today

Jan loses her rag

Disgraced self by ending meeting hurling mug at door closing behind huffy left hand. Resultant scattering of broken china hugely satisfying if messy and staff in office hugely if quietly productive for rest of day. However, not pleased with self – not professional behaviour at all. 

Concede that no-one winds each other up like left hand and I. Horribly alike, both hugely dedicated workaholics, who care passionately about the company and are both held back by chronic insecurities, our biggest problem is a complete failure to communicate with each other the moment we get tired or upset. 

Big difference, though, is I am supposed to be both boss and grown up here.  When am I going to learn to be either?!
