Quote of the Day: Juggling Everybody's Balls

The following quote, which I had printed and framed after it ran in the old Blue Ridge Business Journal, which I was editing at the time, is a marvelous example of our stories getting away from us on occasion.

The story was a profile of a hotel manager in Roanoke named Herman Turk and writer Ellen Davies (one of my favorites, by the way) quoted him thusly:

"The big challenge for me as a manager in this business is trying to juggle balls. I look at my job as trying to facilitate the operation of a top quality hotel and to do that I need to juggle the balls of our associates, our guests and our owner (T.A. Carter)."

Busy man, that Herman Turk.
