Most of us have heard, at one time or another, "It's not personal, it's only business." That little saying is usually used to soothe over any bad feelings as a result of someone screwing you.

My name is Joel Floss. I am presently a co-owner of Merrick Printing Company, Inc. Merrick Printing, located in New York City. I have been a small business owner for 21 years, and was in printing, teaching and sales before this.

This blog is something new for me. My wife has been blogging for a while and is helping me set this up.
