I hate to remember last November but I do remember last November. I was scared, worried, and completely quiet in the way of customers or clients. All the financial woes were rearing their ugly heads and nobody was certain where the economy or our country was going----
Today I feel hopeful and grateful that I made it through the year. My company has been very supportive of us through this period of time and has been constantly giving us food for thought to help our business. I am happy to say that I am getting new people from my web site, my companies web site and my warm market. This time of the year when it usually starts to slow down, it is not so slow I think in part to the extended and expanded first time home buyers credit.
It definitely is different. I have observed , as in life, that the people who were able to adapt have done ok and the people who were unable or unwilling to adapt are gone.
The lesson in the experience for me has been "when you get lemons make lemonade". "When you are not sure how to make lemonade, refer to the directions"
I am very grateful this year to also be a member of Active Rain. I must say that a large part of my encouragement came from posts I have read that inspired me or comforted me or challenged me. Thank you Active Rain family for all your support
