Sorry I haven’t written in so long, but I’ve been incredibly busy! Ok, that’s a lie. Business has been incredibly slow, which often makes me less productive. I started to get worried about two weeks ago. Were my ads still in place? Had the economy totally tanked? Did I have bad breath? Why wasn’t anyone calling me to set up an estate sale? ANY estate sale! Maybe, I started to think, maybe even a garage sale! Finally, just as I contemplated looking for “real” work, things changed once again. In one day alone, I got more calls than I’d received in the previous month and they kept rolling in for the next week. They didn’t all come from one source, either, so I couldn’t conclude that perhaps the whole internet had been at fault. I got calls from people referred to my company by past satisfied customers; calls from random folks who’d walked into a friend’s vintage store and asked for help getting rid of a lot of stuff, which is when they were referred to me; some came from real estate agents calling on behave of their clients; quite a few came after the person had found my company on the internet. Now I have sales lined up through April. What’s going on? As I looked back over previous blog entries, I can see that this isn’t a new situation. Last February was the same. Just the usual cycle of the business, it seems. Guess I’ll stick with adventure a bit longer.
