The wife is at work, the kid is in bed, and I’m up late doing some work. But you know what… I love it! Because it’s for me and my company, not someone else. This is why it’s a privilege to be an entrepreneur.
You get to do what you love!
Many of you may have come home to find the latest phone book on your doorstep. Or someone recently dropped them off at your office. A guy stop in today to deliver to our office and he asked, “Do you want more than four?” My thought was, “Do we really need even one?”
Yellowboook continues to deliver printed phone books even though many if not most go straight to the trash or recycle bin. I’d also venture to guess that anyone under 40 may not have ever even used one. No one ever asks for them they just show up!
So, if you are at a lost as to what to do with your new paperweight, or you just feel bad about throwing them away. Here are five tips for to do with them:
Nothing says utility like the “phone book doorstop.”
If you have old or broken windows, don’t use a stick, use the phone book! It even has two settings. Lay it on it’s side for a small opening and stand it up for a wider opening.
Tired of being too short when you sit at the table? Use the booster seat. One book not enough? Use multiples for even more height. Also works in the car.
Need to put your feet up while you ponder next great business idea? Try the phone book footrest. Great for relaxing and adjustable as well.
My personal favorite. It’s perfect combination of old and new. The phone book laptop stand.
Work-life balance is the key to happiness, but sadly achieving the perfect balance is very hard to do. If you’re a Data Scientist, SEO Specialist or Tour Guide you’re on the right track. Even Social Media Managers made the list.
It looks like I’m in the right field!
