All well-run businesses grow, and Richard’s was no exception. He no longer spent time at the bench; all his days were taken up with design work, meeting clients and watching his three cabinet makers make his furniture, until the day he saw a piece of furniture taking shape that he itched to be making himself. It made him realise that he wanted to do some of the making, but without a determined effort on his part he would never work at the bench again. Happily he solved the dilemma and now divides his time successfully.
