i earned it. i then spent it.
1--i had a ton of help and didn't do it on my own;
2--i id'd two very talented young (17 yo) ladies who took over and got under control my night shift;
3--the manager of the store in xenia lent me his assistant manage one evening every other week so i could have a day off;
4--the manager of the linden avenue store took his night closer--who he could not stand because he talked so much--and sold him to me for a 50 lb. bag of potatoes and a pitcher of beer.--i helped the closer with his studies and lance ended up at the highly competitive and elite oberlin college largely on my stellar endosement;
5--my supervisor let me do what i did even though he told me upfront it wouldn't work;
6--he was wrong and instead of being like you guys he admitted it and paid my bonus gladly;
7--the government paid for a good chunk of my education;
8--my university's endowment paid for the rest;
9--i hired crew extensively using tax credits available through block grants created by the federal government;
10--when we were really a bad store the only people who didn't bail out were the municipal workers of centerville and bellbrook who actually got behind my efforts and even suggested a couple of good hires. they all would eat everyday in my store and i love them for it. i rewarded them with fee coffee refills, by making it an award winning unit, and then getting it replaced with a brand new store where they could hide from their supervisors and drink their free coffee in luxury.
