The Passionate Entrepreneur - Surviving the Holidays
The other day I heard my first Christmas carol in a store, and I wanted to scream, "No, not yet!" The holiday season has arrived, and for those of us who run our own businesses, it's always a stressful time.
If yours is a retail business, you don't need me to tell you how much of your business depends on sales in the next few weeks. In some types of retail, as much as 50 percent of income may come during the holiday season.
But even in non-retail industries, the holidays present unique challenges and opportunities.
