The year of the shipbroker.
Under seige for sometime from cranky shipowners, cantankerous charterers, a falling US dollar and a plunging baltic dry index - its time to take stock and be thankful for all the good we (collectively) as shipbrokers, can look forward to, in the year that will be 2011.
The sun will still rise, ships will still sail and the world will not end (atleast until 2012).
In what could be humankinds penultimate year (if you believe the conspiracy theorists) lets make this one a year to remember. Celebrate your wins with more gusto then usual. Ring the bell until your ears bleed. Dont sweat on the small stuff - leave the gossip at the front door.
And while youre at it
Climb that mountain,
Dive that reef,
Run that marathon
Shag that (sorry i mean love) that person like you have never loved them before
Because people - we are SHIPBROKERS!
Say it - "I AM A SHIPBROKER AND I AM PROUD"!
Stand on your desk and scream it at the top of your lungs - "I AM A SHIPBROKER".
Do it - Do it NOW!
Ok - anyone feel better?
