Why a blog referring to a soggy tuna sandwich? Isn’t it “the worst” when you expect to eat a tasty tuna sandwich made with sourdough bread; you take that first bite and you find out it tastes soggy! Well that was the case with my husband after he bit into the sandwich I made him and found it was soggy. He was very disappointed! Later at an opportune moment he made me aware the experience. To make his point, every disappointment or problem was later called a “soggy tuna sandwich”.
The truth was that I had made the sandwich the day before. On that day, he didn’t take it to work so I just put it in his lunch bag the following day. Lesson learned – I should have just made a new sandwich and not repurposed the old one.
So the soggy tuna sandwich refers to the day-to-day challenges in business.
Property management has its daily challenges. Every day is a new experience.
The purpose of my blog is to tell a story of my interesting experiences and some of the lessons learned.
I will share the situations I encounter in my property management world and write about the personal interactions and conversations from the viewpoint of an experienced property manager.
In demonstrating the lessons, I will make reference to the resource that help me identify, analyze, and work through each situation.
I hope my experience and insights will help you when interacting with Owners, Tenants, and other Service Providers in your property management business or real estate investment business.
