You can tell which businesses are doomed for failure. There’s one media company that requires an access code to speak to a customer service representative. Access code? Are we talking about the best seller 1984?
Other businesses, even small businesses, are doomed. I wanted to get a battery for my wrist watch, and stopped in a watch store in Hicksville. I needed two batteries, and the shop owner had only two left, one so bad he was reluctant to charge me for it. Come on, watch batteries are like chocolate ice cream in an ice cream store! He sold world famous watches. How did he expect to build a clientele?
This is the land of opportunity. Success is not always easy, but every man has a brain, and if it’s a little dim, he can get help. Ask and you shall receive.
