When I wore a younger mans suit and had more balls than brains, I couldn’t manage a studio if my life depended on it, so I got fired.
This was way back. Early 80’s. 24 yrs old and somehow managed to land a position managing a national franchise type photo studio.
(I had a killer resume that impressed someone. They literally hired me over the phone, no more questions asked. The one question they shoulda asked was: “Can you clean?”)
This job I took just prior to starting my own studio. I had little idea what I was doing, but I did learn a lot, because I read their manual. It was loaded with great studio management information. Like finding the McDonald’s management binder and then starting your own. Gold!
