Check out the article that just came out in the Lees Summit Tribune about me and my business.

If you’re on Facebook, I’d sure like to have a like from you guys. I need to make it look like it’s taking off so others will want to jump on the band wagon.

Thanks to all my LJ friends in advance. Love you guys and gals.

Shane, I’m thinking of marketing to Powell Gardens. I was out there a couple weeks ago and their chairs are in horrible condition. I could cut them a good deal. I just hope they don’t have an in-house woodshop that does that, but if they do, they sure are behind in keeping up. People are getting splinters on those old chairs.

Thanks Bullethead. I need to get 30 likes so I can have more control over the page. Facebook business pages are very hard to figure out, I need a teenager around here.

Top Quality Cabinets “liked” your business page. I have had my business FB page for a very long time with very regular postings but still only have 10 likes myself. Oh well, maybe someday I might hit that magic number of 30. But I really do not know that I will have any more or less control once 30 peeps like my site.

Thanks Jerry. You’ll have 11 soon. Facebook is like anything else in advertising, you need to work on getting people on there. It’s the name recognition and the occasional word of mouth sale you get. I decided going in to this that even if I didn’t sell enough to be self employed that I would just stick with it until it happens. I might have to get a job elsewhere, but I’ll always be around to make chairs.
