Details

Running a business isn't easy. Saying that is very easy; I've said it for years. I don't think I really understood "not easy" until this past month while working at esyringe. 


A company that deals with hundreds of customers and several suppliers requires a lot of attention. Not just to the big picture, but also to the details. The details are what's killing me right now. I'm very particular; the webpage has to look just... so. And then someone - *ahum* maybe a family member - looks over my shoulder and tells me it needs to be revamped. 


And who actually appreciates or likes someone looking over their shoulder anyway? The only thing they tell you is what you were thinking yourself seconds before it spills out of their mouth. 


For the person running the business, these details are hard to walk away from or to delegate. The details are what they have been focused on for years. But now it's time to step back. And that's hard too. 


This is life at esyringe.
