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!
