    Don't be nervous. Just do what you can do. I used to be nervous when I first started. Just advertise liberally and you will get enough to be happy. Meanwhile, enjoy the cold while gearing up for the spring! I love that the cold weather is back in New England. And the hot, humid days (my favorite) will be here before you know it!

    I think most guys myself included get nervous around this time of year. The best thing to do is worry about things you have control over. If you have good marketing systems in place, and for the most part have happy clients there is nothing more you can do.

    Sitting around worried about how many account you'll keep isn't gonna do ya any good. It only makes you fell desparate. Honestly you shouldn't have anything to worry about if you did right by your customers last year.

    Just make sure you advertise enough, and are ready to roll when it comes time.
