I know it can be a little depressing for some business owners in this industry this time of the year. If you live in a cold climate zone and the snow is not falling, you have a tendency to become very familiar with all the soap operas and day time talk shows on TV. Don't sweat it. Turn off the TV first of all. Second, look at the lack of snowfall as a blessing. Use this time of the year to prepare, plan and get ready for the upcoming season. Leave no stone unturned and prepare yourself for everything you know you are about to encounter. Think of it like this....during the spring and summer when you are so overwhelmed, you have probably said to yourself.... "Where does all the time go? I can't get organized." Now is that time. Use it wisely so the upcoming 2010 season is your best ever.
