The Week Ahead Sept 14-18, 2009

Tuesday: August Producer Price Index, August Retail Sales, July Business Inventories,
Wednesday: August Consumer Price Index, August Industrial Production, Crude Inventories,
Thursday: Weekly initial jobless claims. August Housing Starts and Building Permits,

Larson note: Well we have another feel good week again, but remember we are STILL in a recession. Even though things are getting better, the downspin has not stopped. If we can stop losing jobs, then I will feel good about where we are. Until then. Keep working your butts off. Gain market share even if you are not gaining in total sales revenue. Then when we get to the other side of this mess you will be king of ”your” hill.

The focused industries we are looking to add clients in for the month are Advertising Specialties, Trade Show Booth Builder, Sign Shop, a Graphic Design Studio, and Printer both small and mid-sized.

Additionally we are also looking for sales persons in all areas except
the Great Plains States.
