A lot of people really enjoy gambling. They play the lottery and bingo, go to a casino and play the slots or blackjack or roulette. They love the bright lights, the excitement, the risk.

I am not one of them.

I own my own business. Every day is a gamble.

Am we getting calls for new business?

Are the calls for the kind of business that we want?

Are we getting engaged?

Can we deliver on time?

Did we price it right? Will it be profitable?

And, of course, the big one: will we get paid?

So I will pass on the gambling.

Every day is plenty exciting for me, thanks.
