Handling Those Unexpected Surprises
Trying to predict the future of your food truck business is futile. Instead of trying to predict what may happen, be ready to respond. When the unexpected arrives at your service window, do these three things:
- Stop. If you feel pressured to make a decision, stop what you’re doing. Give yourself a chance to think before acting.
- Assess your options. Don’t waste time wishing things were different. Think about the best outcome in the given situation, the information you have at hand, and the available resources. Then lay out your options.
- Move forward. Based on your new assessment, make a decision and commit. Even if the decision isn’t ideal, accept that it’s the best under the circumstances.
