A Joint Venture


current time:

Herb Tasker is looking for oil. His company, Great North Energy Inc., joined up with another oil drilling company to look for oil in the north. He was looking for a company that matched up with his company. He was getting frustrated because there were so many companies that he could not trust. He felt stressed and one day lashed out at his executive assistant when the assistant was suggesting there were no good companies. A day later, he apologized and began to open up with his assistant. Then they found a very good company and joined up for this drilling venture. Now Herb is in the north with his team and he feels so confident they will find what they are looking for that he might just nod off a bit after lunch.
