This week, we’ve been focused on reaching out to junk removal businesses. The junk removal business fascinates me for some reason. Maybe it’s because I think junk removal people are savvy little sleepers when it comes to business. They act quickly and seize opportunity. They do what many won’t and turn junk into gold. Seems that other small businesses could take a cue or two from them.
I recall during my last move all the “stuff” I had which was quickly labeled as junk. Where I was moving I had to limit what I took and the rest went to storage. Going through it, I realized just how much I carried with me from place to place for years. It was hard to recall why I ever had some of in the first place, let alone why I was moving it again. Maybe it’s age, maybe just trying to simplify things; whatever, but it’s liberating to be released of things, of baggage, of junk. The interesting thing is that you never really regret or miss your junk, yet prior to getting rid of it, you couldn’t let go of it and were very attached to it. No worries though because quickly old junk is replaced with new junk and we go through the process again. The key is to learn what is necessary, what is a jewel and what is junk. On the positive of course, all that stuff can be of good use to lots of other people.
