Three orders, all due on a Saturday. I knew this production week was going to be full. The kind of full that forces you to schedule every minute of your day, without even 5 minutes of wiggle room. This is a daunting, but necessary task that allows me to ensure both the safety and quality of my product; two things which I will not compromise.
Never having had 3 large-scale projects all due on the same day, I had to be mindful of how much prep I needed to get done in advance, how long I could safely store each component, how much time I could spend assembling all of it, and the order in which each item would be delivered.
