WOW! There has been a lot of confusion in the Presidential Election! It is sometimes disheartening and mind-boggling. Add to that the ups and downs of the market, the media's gloomy portrayal of third-world countries and top that off with, (for those who care),the complexity of integrating the brick and mortar with the click and order. I'll say it again, only backwards: WOW!

But take heart!

We still have the freedom to run our businesses and capatalize profits. It is with this thought, the running of your business, that I want to encourage you to be bold and courageous and think BIG! Not in terms of business physical size or even your wallet size for that matter. But to take a look at the big picture. Where will your business be in 5 to ten years from now? How will your employees be taken care of? How will your business carry on the reputation you've worked so hard to build?

Take some time to think about that. Then, gather all of the resources at your disposal to begin developing your legacy.

You already have one good source at your fingertips... http://www.signindustry.com

We've been pleased with the absolutely amazing response we've received at SignIndustry.com from many wonderful people within our industry. I am talking about the help that the gentleman from Tampa received who was looking for the best way to cut vinyl. Or the guy from Montana who wanted to start his own sign shop. Or how about the woman who inquired about cutting magnetic in the shape of a bear claw? And just yesterday, a man from China needed information on paints for printers.
