What's New ?

Is This Glass Half Empty or Half Full?

As a business, are you pro active during this economy or have you taken a wait and see approach? Many businesses, according to a recent survey by Insperity  are taking a wait and see approach. 70 percent of Business Owners listed the economy as the number one concern they had for their business in 2011. This in spite of the fact that 70 % are meeting or exceeding 2011 performance plans. Is this pessimism for pessimism's sake? Bad news is like advertising, if we hear enough of the same message it starts to sink in. But is the small business owner’s attitude causing part of the problem?

As small business owners in America we make the economy work. Small businesses employ more workers, create more revenue, and sell more products than their larger counter parts. So why are small business owners so pessimistic when 70 % are meeting or exceeding 2011 performance plans? Why not take a new approach, actively develop new markets, seek out and build new partnerships? In other words why aren't more small businesses being proactive?

According to the survey mentioned earlier small businesses are worried about health care costs (47%), health care reform (46%), the federal deficit (74%) and a myriad of other things that can cause economic problems. And yet 52% expect to have an increase in sales over 2010. Over 82% have stated that they have delayed their expectations of a recovery. Are you starting to see a pattern here?

Small business owners are concerned about national issues (with good reason) and show pessimism for the issues with which they have the least control. However, when it comes to their own businesses they display optimism for the coming year and even expect growth. It appears most small businesses feel like they have their own act together and only wish others involved with our economy would get theirs together as well.
Cruzin' Cooler????

A 1000 Watt Electric Scooter with the body of a cooler is being sold on E-Bay for $799. So if you are in the market for a gift for the person that has everything, this might be perfect. At least you won't be getting them the same thing everyone else is getting. (Just a guess).

This is no joke, the cooler or scooter is rechargeable and can go up to 13 mph for up to 15 miles and can carry up to 300lbs, oh and a case of beer and 8 lbs of ice.

Cruzin' Cooler

Better hurry, the seller only has 5 left and the sale is over in 17 days.

A 500 watt version is available here:
