A GOOD USE:

WOULD IT?

ERIN, WHY IS THIS SO THICK?

IS THIS NON-CONFERENCE OPTIONS?

IN CASE:

YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND.

THINK ABOUT IT, TESS.

THE SUN, THE SAND,

THE OPPORTUNITIES.

ANYTHING COULD HAPPEN.

I'M SO JEALOUS.

DON'T BE.

- YOU WANTED TO SEE ME?

- HEY, CLARA.

HI.

YES, I HAVE SOME BAD NEWS.

REALLY THOUGH,

THIS ISN'T PERSONAL.

- IT FEELS PERSONAL.

- NO, OF COURSE NOT.

I MEAN,

IF THIS WAS UP TO ME,

THIS WOULD:

NEVER EVEN BE HAPPENING.

- I KNOW.

RESTRUCTURING A BUSINESS

IS NEVER EASY.

YOU SEE, THEY CALL THESE

TOUGH DECISIONS:

BECAUSE THEY'RE JUST THAT--

TOUGH.

AND YOU'RE THE TOUGHES OF ALL FOR ME.

THESE THINGS:

ARE LIKE GOLD MINES

WHEN IT COMES:

TO FINDING NEW JOBS.

- I'LL CALL HER.

I TOLD LEN:

YOU'D BE UP AS SOON

AS YOU WERE DONE

WITH YOUR MEETING.

- OH, THANK YOU.

NO, I'M NOT GONNA BE ASKING

ABOUT PROMOTIONS TODAY.

I THINK I NEED A NEW DOCTOR.

BUT YOU JUST GO THAT NEW ONE.

YEAH, WELL,

HE'S GREAT AND ALL,

BUT I THINK HE THINKS

I'M A HYPOCHONDRIAC.

TESS, I REALLY NEED

TO TALK TO YOU:

- ABOUT CHANGING MY DEFERRAL.

OH, DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY

VACATION DAYS I HAVE LEFT?

ROD AND I DECIDED TO TAKE OUR

SECOND HONEYMOON THIS SUMMER.

TIRED?

OH, NO, I JUST HAD MY

CONVERSATION WITH CLARA, SO--

OH, AND HOW DID THAT GO?

IT'S DIFFICULT, YOU KNOW?

THEY ALL ARE.

YEAH, RESTRUCTURING

A COMPANY ISN'T EASY.

THAT'S EXACTLY

WHAT I SAID, OF COURSE.

AND TOUGH DECISIONS

ARE TOUGH:

- FOR A REASON.

- RIGHT.

THAT IS WHY:

WITHOUT QUESTION

YOU ARE THE TOUGHEST ONE OF ALL.

WHEN I TOOK OVER THIS COMPANY,

MY FATHER'S COMPANY,

I KNEW THAT WE HAD TO MAKE

CHANGES FOR CONNOR.COM

TO GO BEYOND:

A LOCAL ONLINE RETAILER.

[clears throat]

WE'RE MORE THAN THAT.

BUT WHILE GOING OVER

THE BOOKS,

I REALIZED THA ALTHOUGH SOME DEPARTMENTS

WOULD HAVE TO ADDRESS

SOME CUTBACKS,

ONE WAS FULLY EXPENDABLE.

"EXPENDABLE"?

IT'S ALL

ABOUT STREAMLINING NOW.

ERIN WILL COME WORK WITH ME,

AND JEFF FROM ACCOUNTING

WILL HANDLE THE MICRO TASKS

SUCH AS PAYROLL, VACATIONS,

BLAH, BLAH, BLAH.

YEAH.

"BLAH, BLAH, BLAH."

YOU KNOW, YOU CAN'T HAVE

A COMPANY:
