My top salesman had been let go by me, and now my business was suffering.
I had been so sure of myself, so convinced that I was doing the right thing but now I was starting to realize that cutting him loose was a mistake.
I had been running my small business for a few years now and had been doing pretty well.
I was an entrepreneur and had a few employees, but my top salesman had been the one who made the most impact on my business.
He was an experienced professional and knew how to close deals.
He was always willing to go the extra mile to get the job done and he was a great asset to the company.
But then, I decided to let him go. I had decided that I could do his job and by cutting him, I could save on some salary.
It made sense to cut him loose.
I thought it was the right decision at the time, but now I was starting to realize that it was a mistake.
My business was starting to suffer. Sales had dropped considerably and I was losing customers.
I was losing money and I was starting to worry about the future of my business.
I knew that I had to do something, but my ego was too high to do something so drastic as asking him back.
I thought that I could manage without him, but I was wrong.
I was struggling to keep up with the workload and my sales were dropping. I was losing customers and it seemed like my business was doomed.
I had made a mistake and I was starting to realize that. I had been so sure of myself, so convinced that I was doing the right thing.
But now I was starting to understand that cutting him loose was a mistake.
But it was too late. I had made the decision and there was no turning back.
I blame it on my ego but I just could not bring myself to ask him back to help me.
I was now realizing that my ego was too high and that I should have been more humble and open to listening to other people’s advice.
People around me had been telling me to keep this top salesman of mine no matter how much it costs as it was because of him that my business was thriving.
Yet, I refused to listen to them.
I had been too sure of myself and too quick to make decisions without thinking them through.
I was now paying the price for my mistake and my business was suffering and on the brink of closing down.
