Here at ProfessionalBusiness.Company, we know that when the going gets tough, someone has to pay. Moving units consistently and efficiently typically provides enough security that professional unit makers and their middle-managers feel comfortable getting married, having families, and signing mortgages. There is, however, one thing other than student debt that prevents our future producer/consumers from entering into meaningful long term relationships with banks that are based in equity and not some undergrad pipe dream about Latin American Studies. Armed conflict. We have enjoyed a perhaps unreasonably long time of peace in the United States, and while it is always good to take stock, it may also be worthwhile to do so in a metaphorical manner to examine your life and how you affect those closest to you; your co-workers.
We previously covered the meteoric rise of DMS, a closely held corporation with a lot of potential but no clear path to monetization. This morning, DMS once again demonstrated why they are in our “must buy or at least watch and consider buying” category. The internet does not just get Amazon to deliver units of plastic to your consumers faster than ever before, it can be used against us. Imagine an enemy as efficient and intimately familiar with you as Amazon Prime.
So please. Whatever you are doing, stop, take a deep breath, and take inventory of your shelves. Those units don’t restock themselves. Yet.
