The Week Ahead July 20 – July 24

Monday: June leading economic indicators
Thursday: Weekly initial jobless claims, June existing home sales,
Friday: July University of Michigan consumer sentiment index

Larson note: Last week was sort of nice wasn’t it? New housing starts jumped more that expected in June with a very nice 14.4% jump. And this week, well its sort of like the song “The Eve of Destruction” “Its good new week, someone dropped a bomb somewhere contaminating the atmosphere and darkening the sky …” Think about it all around you the economy is in turmoil, business hurting, but you don’t need to. Is your business in the war zone or a safe zone?

This is going to be a good statistic week, so sit back and enjoy it. To keep your ship sailing on course, keep your eyes open and your face forward looking for opportunity in turmoil.

For Larson & Associates our focused industries we are looking to add clients in for the month of July are Advertising Specialties, Trade Show Booth Builder, Sign Shop, and a Graphic Design Studio, and Printer (small and mid-sized) and looking to add more accounts in the eastern and pacific time zones. We are also looking for sales persons in New England, Texas and Southern California.
