I was walking through the desert in Palm Springs last week, taking in the sun and beauty of a sparse landscape displayed in hues of brown. The only colour this landscape offered were occasional florals, in clusters of alstrameria and birds of paradise. Since we can’t grow these beauties here, my mind wandered back to the time when I owned my (unintentional) flower shop.
I am thrilled to publish Problem Corner.
When I was a kid, my mother listened to the Bill and Bill Show, a morning program on the Edmonton radio station, CJCA. Bill Matheson and Bill Jackson were so entertaining, educational, and a little edgy for that era.
Bill Matheson's daily introduction to the show was: "We are broadcasting to you from the crystal gondola in the palatial main studios of 930 CJCA in beautiful downtown Edmonton for the education, elucidation, emancipation, enlightenment and mental emolument of the hoi-polloi."
When listeners would call in, Bill Matheson would answer the phone, "Good morning, problem corner".
I have 30 years of stories, problems, and solutions from the variety of businesses and entrepreneurs I've had the pleasure of working with, (names will be changed to protect the innocent).
I invite you to comment, send me questions related to your business, I will be happy to respond to your message.
It is our mission to create opportunities for growth, hopefully we can do a little of that right here.
