Getting the Job Done

8BE41860-76AC-412A-B2E0-840798DA1BE4I was the advanced man on the team. My mission was to finesse my way into the inner circle using my unique skill set. I needed to make them feel secure that I wasn’t a threat and knew what I was doing. Then, once having gained their trust, my job would be to ensure there were no ripples of discontent.

It wasn’t easy, because they were a squirrelly bunch. But I had more than a few tricks up my sleeve, so it was just a matter of time before I was ready to contact the rest of my team to come in and finish it. The outcome was always a foregone conclusion, we were that good. Once the mission was accomplished, my new role was to mop things up. I was known as the guy who was the first in and the last out.

I loved owning my own kitchen renovation company.

    Great use of all the words.
    The surprise ending reminds me of Jeffrey Archer s short stories. It was just as unexpected.

    It started off in the tone of some spy movie. Love the ending!
