I want to differ. Most businesses that I talk with are down 30 to 60%.
Expenses are up drastically, and sales are down considerably. The economy SUCKS!
Many small businesses are considering themselves lucky if they are breaking
even; but most are losing money, dipping into personal savings, maxing out
credit cards, insurance policies, etc.
Yesterday I spoke with my accountant, lawyer and banker. Everyone stated
that many of their business clients are experiencing hardship.
With my company Graphic Imaging, business this year has been tough. We are
hoping that September will bring opportunities, but there are no guarantees.
One thing that you can do to help, is to BUY LOCAL. Independent businesses
are experiencing tough times. For example, many people are making off shore
companies Multi-Multi-Millionaires by using the Internet. For example: Vista
Print had sales of $408,000,000 as of July 08'. Most people are not aware of
how companies like this are affecting the local economy here in the USA. Most
of the orders that they receive are under $100.00, but larger orders are
leaving the country as well. Do your self a favor and check out the BBB (Better
Business Bureau) to see how ethical (or un-ethical) a company is that you are
making a purchase from.
