The Week Ahead October 5-9, 2009

Wednesday: Consumer Credit, Treasury Budget
Thursday: Weekly initial jobless claims, Wholesale Inventories
Friday: Trade Balance

Larson note: I was ready this week. Auto sales drop, employment rate higher. Still I like what I and my people are hearing off the street.

This week, don’t expect anything good report wise. We need inventories to keep low and I am not sure if they are low enough. My only suggestion is to pick your battles and push forward. There are victories to be won. You might want to look at our afternoon blog last Friday and see if there are any growing industries you could be marketing into. I am.

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.

If interested give us a call at 847-991-0488.
