Oy...

So we're happily ensconced in our new office space.

But now we are being inundated by people walking our front door wanting to sell us stuff.

Just today, we've had four different people trying to sell us stuff: a guy with a freezer full of meat, two guys trying to lease us warehouse space (uh... we just moved in, but thanks), and a gal selling employee health benefits.

Last week we had someone trying to sell us warehouse equipment.

I'm putting a big sign on our door that says:

"If you're not a client and you don't have an appointment, don't come in."
or

"If I need it, I know how to use the phone book and the Internet."

Argh...

Oh, the joys of opening a new business in the big bad world . . . LOL

Remember what you were taught - be nice! Even these annoying people could be future customers.

Here's a quote for you:

Every thought I think is creating my future.

Love you, Mom

Ugh...how annoying. Think of how much time-suck these people are. Glad to see all is going well for you :)
