Default Close down the business...


Thanks for Asking.

Interesting things...

Working on building business the last two years... overcome boredom when things get slow... Especially when funds get low.

For two years you have been Trying to build this business. It makes little money and you are bored due to lack of business. Thus...

Time To Move On.

Shut the business down and move onto other things: Maybe a new business - or - heavens to betsy, a Job.

We all know that persistance is a golden rule to successful business

Do we?

Maybe it's best to Listen to Simon Latouche here... business is like gambling at the casino, maybe you strike it big, maybe you don't. But ALL the things that determine the success of your business are Out of Your Control.

How many Opportunities For More Lucrative Activity are you missing out on by messing around with this nickle and dime business of yours? (Just something to Ponder.)

A Lesson from Joe Sugarman: Don't test test test. If it doesn't work first time, Dump It. Dump the product. Move on to something else.

The REAL success rule of business is: Sell what people Want, at a price that makes you enough profit to stay in business.

Often, what people want is: Solutions to problems (Think of Every item in your home - dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, etc. - and understand the Problem those devices solve). And if it's something they are Currently concerned about, BINGO!

Michael Ross

P.S. Sometimes, the Worst thing that can happen is a Small Success. Because then you keep poundiung your head against the wall thinking it will become a Big Success - if you just get the ingredients right.

Success Gurus may show you Examples of people whose Persistence paid off... but how many Persisted only to Never achieve the end result? We don't hear about them, do we?
