Main Street Manager Job Description

The successful Main Street Project Manager must:

Be as agile as a monkey because he or she spends so much time out on a limb;

Have a big chin, so he can lead with it;

Have a thick skin to ward off the stings of insult and ingratitude;

Have strong legs so she can stand on her own two feet all day long and still be limber enough to kneel at bedtime;

Have a deaf ear for flattery, a good ear for criticism and judgment to distinguish between the two;

Have a big mouth, so she won’t choke when she puts her foot in it, and a big appetite for swallowing her pride and eating her own words;

Have most of all, a rubber neck in order to:
Turn the other cheek,
Face reality,
Look back at history,
Forward to the future,
Confront the issues, and
Face the music….simultaneously!

He or she will:
Work under more pressure than a deep sea diver;

Get more criticism than a poor man with an ambitious mother-in-law;

Suffer more temptation than a shoplifter in a mint;

Be expected to be everywhere at once like the chaperone at a high school prom.

Moreover, this individual must be able to be gracious at the end of the year when congratulated for a job well done.
