Haikus for the independent meeting planner


Or any small business owner, I would say (having been one myself a few times). By Mark Haas, president, Research and Organization Management:

My client calls me,

“Six figures if you come now.”

My alarm clock rings.

I have reached the top,

president of my own firm,

but where’s the toner?

The consultant’s joy:

working only half a day.

Which twelve hours is it?

Pack my suitcase for

exotic destinations.

Look, a Red Roof Inn!

Arriving slowly,

like a turtle in winter.

My receivables.

Thanks to Jennifer Warwick and her New Charm School blog for the pointer!
