At the end of December, the Wall Street Journal published an article that said "One in four business owners say poor sales is their top business problem, ahead of any other issue, according to a November survey from the National Federation of Independent Business, a small-business lobby group." Poor sales is a common issue. We would all like to see higher sales.
In our November meeting, we talked about why people buy locally. If we understand why people do business with us and can find ways to work independently and together to support our mutual customers in the manner they want to be supported, we should see higher sales. In this meeting, let's review what we discussed in November and talk about how we can increase the value to our customers to increase sales.
Help us continue our efforts to support our locally-owned businesses on the peninsula.
