    This is one of the toughest jobs I've EVER had.

    I truly empathize with other managers that have to deal with issues of respect for both management and employees. It's not easy when one faces the black and/or white circumstances. Finding the shade of gray to help all areas improve and build is a TASK!!!

    I've finally made a decision.

    I'm letting the assistant go. There's no need to discredit anymore. I'm at peace with how to handle the situation and myself. It's for the best.

    Not Easy Be a Manager

    I mean in my way then I am a manager. Most of the other people may not agree but they have to follow or discuss or fly away. Because not everyone could realise a better way to do things, a man will come to lead. In most of the cases, you will get hurt but you will continue...
