I gone 4 of my large telecasting advertizement accounts in one period due to changes al fresco of my command. Anddddd I was COMPLETELY UNPREPARED for the Sahara Sales Desert that without beating about the bush followed!
I will never forget what my sales officer aforementioned to me at the instance (remember - he was a period member of the Old Boys' Club)
"Kim - I guess this happened because you don't have a young man."
That was his outstanding guidance for me on how to get better hundreds of thousands of dollars in wasted gross.

How Do You Avoid The Dry Spell From Hell?
oPlan Ahead! If you are too in a meeting "working in" your firm vs ON your firm - I endorse you will have one dry psychological state after other. You essential blueprint leading and discover the months of the yr that your income make better/decrease and after craft a scheme on what to do!
oHave Some Reserves! (Camels Do!) Most women in business concern are under-capitalized. You have to SAVE/have a Line of Credit/ access to capital to facilitate you upwind a DRY SPELL so you don't react in a fashion that is enormously short-term rational. ie/Cancelling advertising, prevent promoting yourself, don't clutch any administrative growth etc as you don't have the coins. If you are at that spike - next you aren't fashioning prudent firm decisions for your business concern and you have much DRY SPELLS in your upcoming. GUARANTEED.
oDon't Have All Your Water On One Camel! It happened to me - it could take place to you. Who is your large client? Now..imagine that purchaser goes out of business, retires, chooses another bourgeois - where on earth would YOU BE? Don't maintain all of your leading receipts in a small indefinite quantity of clients otherwise if thing goes misguided - you will involve a HANDFUL OF KLEENEX!!
oMake Sure You Are Headed For An Oasis and NOT a Mirage! Do you have realistic income targets? Do you have an well-grooved gross sales and commerce design for the side by side period of time or are you WINGING IT? How so much do you impoverishment to acquire this time period and compose in particular in DETAIL - HOW are you going to do it?
Are You Feeling A Little Cracked?
Hey - I bear in mind what it feels like! Maybe your financial organisation side is response a miniature CRACKED UP because your income have flat-lined or reduced. One situation I cognise for sure - if you bread and butter doing what you have done in the quondam - you are going to get the aforementioned results.
Listen To My Dad (he's high-handed too!)
An display my Dad ever uses is "Dig the healed before you are thirsty" - and this categorically applies to avoiding the Sahara Sales Desert hitting your business!
