People are uncertain about the future and are being more conservative in their spending. That doesn’t mean that they’re not spending at all though. Business is down in most places and will be for a while. My own business is off and I’ve had to switch gears and try new things to start making up the difference.

One thing is for sure in good times and bad…if I don’t try new things I will continue having the same results I’m getting (which right now are less than I want). I’ve picked up the frequency I’m getting my name and products out in front of customers, I’m looking at new groups of potential customers, I’m looking at new products to sell and new ways to sell them. So far this month is better than the last 3.

It reminds me of growing up as a kid and trying to make money mowing lawns. You just gotta go knock on them doors. Good luck to all.
