So how was your 2011 overall? Good, bad, ugly, stagnant, phenomenal? And WHY? Our sales were down 3.5%, which I attribute to a few things. Knee surgery kept me out of the field for two months mid-summer Largest customer, landscape company, decided to do most service work including blow outs in-house this year instead of contracting to us We did zero advertising We turned down working with the city parks department which we had done the year before So overall, gross sales numbers were down a bit, but not bad for all the above reasons. Fuel cost was up 41% for us, but that was the only major change in other expenses. Insurance and workers comp was down since we did not work for the city parks. So I would say it was stagnant or very even, compared to 2010 for us. I'm looking to grow a bit this year though. I do see more homes being built in my area again. Just down the road from me there is a development that was put on hold about 3-4 years ago. They now have 18 homes being built at the same time. New car registrations are up significantly for our county. Are things rebounding? We'll see.
