    Charging less does not mean more call volume it just means you have to work harder to reach your goals.

    Same thing happened here. Since Thanksgiving we got about 3 jobs in all. But even the sales calls seem to have stopped.

          We traditionally would slow down right around Thanksgiving and then pick up again after the first of the year. I always felt it had to do with peoples priorities for their money and time. There will still be calls which have to be done but there will be less discretionary calls.

                    I'm shaking in my boots big bill month. I'm giving easycam a trial and if I like it I can buy it. but it will blow my savings out of the water leave me in trouble if no one calls. Everytime I get close to being able to afford a better camera the phone stops ringing and I lose everyting I saved

                    It's close to the end of the year The deduction would be nice but I'm worried. Buy the camera have it if it's any good roll the dice and have faith the phone will ring.

                      Whats this "savings" thing you speak of????

                      Hard choice to make. Spend your safety net on equipment that has the potential to make you more money and customers or wait for times to get better and keep your safety net????

                      One thing I've learned in the past 4 yrs is, owning your own business has RISK after Risk. Oh and, the more money you make, the more bills you have.
                      It's a gamble and friggin' scary at times but this is what separates the men from the boys.

                        Thats a fact! The saying is always true, takes money to make money.
