Sam Carpenter wrote a book on business organisation that really impressed me, and he travels the world helping small businesses like ours to become better operators.
But on a recent trip to Romania, Sam, the master planner, upset his plans with one small mistake.
“On my trip to Romania I drank from a public drinking fountain. I was told I shouldn’t have, and sure enough, over the months since I got back I’ve been feeling more and more horrible every week until it got to the point that it came time for me to go back to work. I was finding myselof feeling exhausted by 11am.
I went to a doctor I realised I had something serious going on, and found that I had parasites and bacteria!
