At last the constant stream of frightening and depressing business/economic stories has slowed to a trickle so perhaps we can now just be worried rather than suicidal? Well, I hope it’s the same for you but we’re not seeing any sign of a slow-down. Granted, we’re not in a high-tech or manufacturing town or city but Plymouth is only 15 miles away.
Along with a steadily growing stream of enquiries and new clients, most of the businesses we speak to don’t seem to be struggling. Sure, there’s the exception but they’re just that – the exception. The business club we belong to (Business League, Saltash (link here)) started off with about 10 members a year ago and we’ve just recruited 3 more to take us to 25.
The truth is that any business that delivers good, honest services or products and markets itself effectively will be OK. As long as you do the basics right, keep your profile high and retain a positive outlook business will continue to come in.
