The Week Ahead July 6 – July 10

Monday: June institute for supply management services index
Wednesday: May consumer credit
Thursday: May wholesale inventories, Weekly initial jobless claims
Friday: May trade balance

Larson note: Are we at the bottom of this recession yet? I think so but it is after all summer. Last week saw payrolls drop, unemployment continue to climb with real unemployment sitting at over 16%.

We noticed an uptick in interest in our outgoing telesales work. A very good sign that says that companies are looking at plans and ideas to start to expand their or businesses rather than sit tight and wait out the rest to the recession. Now I will grant you this is totally unscientific, but to us and our clients it says the business world is starting to open up. Now if this interest translates into sales, that is where the rubber starts to mean the road. Stay tuned for next week’s exciting show.

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.
