Out of control

May is out of control. More deals than ever, more turnover than ever. It goes without saying that we've more costs than ever and, naturally, May is the month when the entire crew (with exception of the shareholders) get an additional month's vacation pay. The most prudent way to handle a surge in sales is to ignore it knowing, with certainty, that a catostrophic month (or months) lie smirking around the corner and, in the end, it will all average out following to the letter the immutable law of averaging. I wish I'd kept this in mind before ordering that custom TVR.

Next week is full of interviews. New consults and additional financial support person. Quality of applications has been mixed ranging from good to shambolic. At the shambolic end for example, one candidate had listed the following in the qualifications section:
Prepared and gave a speech to 200 people at the funeral of my brother-in-law.
