The Week Ahead for March 30 – April 3, 2009

Tuesday: March consumer confidence, January Case-Shiller home price index
Wednesday: March institute for Supply Management index, March vehicle sales, February construction spending
Thursday: Weekly initial jobless claims, February factory orders,
Friday: March employment report

Larson note: Aside from expecting employment to continue to be heading south the news is going to start to get better. In one respect it might be good that banks are still being tight with money making people and companies live off their given cash flow. Yet, to make a splash for larger pieces of equipment and appliances the banks have to let loose of some of that cash they have been getting from US.

People are feeling good or better about things, even if Obama’s approval rating is going down.

Larson & Associates March’s sales will be posted next week but they have pushed will past last year’s sales numbers.

In our annual training/planning trip this year to a Northern Wisconsin resort we made a few slight adjustments to the overall business plan for 2009 but it remains for the most part intact and on target

We are still looking for that elusive sales representive for the Central States but not really concerned.

As it is our focused industries we are looking to add clients in are Advertising Specialties, Trade Show Booth Builder, Sign Shop, and an Art Studio. Special bird dog rates apply in these industries

Trade show schedule: Design 2 Part Job Shop Show, Schaumburg IL May 5&6, Time slots still available to meet over coffee.

Racing schedule: Palatine Invite Alumni 1 mile run Saturday April 24, Madison Marathon Sunday May 24th.
