Next, I finally decided to listen to Dave Ramsey and get our finances in order. We started by pulling out the money to cover his recommended cash expenses and getting a rudimentary budget going. This is a little painful because we are in the relatively slack part of the year so but getting the order installed has been so liberating and empowering.
Next we came up with a baby step for turning over some management responsibilities to one of our guys who has been with us a while and has an interest. In order for this to work, we came up with a little routing form to follow to make sure all the steps are done. We mocked up a Google calendar and database that we can all access. It has entirely straightened out our procedure setting up jobs that has worked for 17 years but wasn't something we could easily turn over to someone.
Feels good to be in charge of these areas of my life.
