For years I've made my bean money working as an onsite apartment manager. I've had as many as 120 units and as few as 26. I've managed with a partner / roommate and without. I've worked for the insane and the rational. I keep thinking I've seen it all and my definition of "it all" continues to expand.
So, this post is about managing and this is where I will post the conventions of how I write about managinging.
I manage three buildings. I work in The Building and live in The Other Building. The third building (The Other Other Building) is small and pretty quiet so it can have a silly handle.
And that's it for now! If I think of any more I will put them here.
Q & A (now with just the A!)
A: Yes, I have written a tv spec pilot entitled "Managing to Survive." It won an award at UCLA
A: Yes, I've had other blogs with this title.
A: No, I have not always managed to survive. I used to clerk in a law firm. But "Clearking in A Law Firm to Survive" just doesn't have that zip the big time Hollywood producers crave.
A: Yes, it's a crazy job. Because people are crazy. And they make me crazy. And then I do crazy things. Like get up the next day and go back to work.
A: Yes, I have thought of myself as an action hero especially when I'm on the roof in the rain at three in the morning. I can hear the the deep-voiced trailer man say "Ed Goodman is: Managing to Survive."
