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. Does it make you feel any better? Doubtful, but it gives the speaker a way of compartmentalizing the previous heinous act into some sort of business ethic.
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.
I am always learning new things about printing and business in general. Just when I think I've heard it all, something new comes along to dispel that knowledge. It's a brave new world out there, where new technologies threaten to shake up old business ethics.
This blog is something new for me. My wife has been blogging for a while and is helping me set this up.
