Never Tasted Better

There is a stream that runs behind my house. It is filled with small fish, stones, and tiny insects that float across the top. On warm days, I would sit by the stream and soak my bare feet in the clear and cool water. The refreshing feeling filled my body up with glee.

One day, I sat by the stream on an extremely hot afternoon. The sun rays beamed down on my head and clothes with a force that was as hot as an oven. I wiped beads of sweat from my forehead and tried to breathe in fresh air. After a while of fighting the heat, the cool stream before me began to look very inviting. I reached down to cup a small amount of the fresh water in my hand. Intending to drink the coolness, I brought my hand to my mouth. Suddenly, I heard the voice of my mother.

I dropped my hand and turned to see my mother running towards me with a stern look. She sat down beside me and explained that the stream water could not be safe to drink. I could get sick. Instead, she constructed a water filtration media before me with materials like rocks, sand, and a special treatment soil. Then, she filtered the stream water through the media before handing a small amount out for me to drink. At that moment, water never tasted better!

Business By the Blog

The economy had hit us hard. Not only had a major retail competitor opened their doors down the street but we had lost many local sales as our customers too were feeling the economy crunch. What was weird is that a friend had a basket company that was strictly done on line, and her sales were soaring. She told me how she kept her sales coming in. At first I couldn’t believe it or understand what the SEO stuff was all about.

It was a cheap seo site that made the difference in where we are today. No joke, I focused in our some of our specialty items and sales and advertising toally increased. Our company didn’t just maintain, it grew.

The way business is done has changed. And it is takes risk and staying up on technology to make sure one’s business stays alive. I can’t believe where we are today. Our sales are up, our focus has changed and the way we do business and market is done much by people I don’t even know. It’s awesome. Business has never been better.
