Never Give Up. Never. Never. Never. Never.

By
Real Estate Mortgage Broker with Mortgage Magic

The Title is a famous speech given by Winston Churchill to school kids during World War II. "Never give up. Never. Never. Never. Never. Never."

You might be like me; in a position where you own your own company and simply don't have the opportunity to walk away. So, you can't give up. But, in many ways the down turn has been good for me. I have become a persistant negotiator and have negotiated everything down- even reduced our office rent from $17,000 to $5,000 and have reduced expenses everywhere. I have become a better marketer. And, as a sales person I notice every opportunity and let few slip away.

So, I won't give up but it would be nice if the tide would start to turn in our favor.

Things will get better Doug. It looks like you were leaving a lot of money on the table during the good times. The school of hard knocks is a good teacher.

Even if things are not going to get better, looks like you can take a good care of them. Renegotiating the lease from $17K to $5K, wow.

Terrific work,

Everyone who can hang in there until this difficult time passes will come out the other side a winner.

OUTSTANDING!!!  I too am a business owner - I find myself working a little bit harder to find the jobs and work just a little harder to make sure that every home and business owner is happy with our service and value.  A little persisitence goes a long way!  Good luck!
