In a time of disaster, we’re making money…

28 Sep

Everyone keeps asking me how it’s going.

I think we can all be proud of how we’ve moved this company forward during one of the toughest periods in business. I once read that the Fortune 500 was derived out of the Great Depression.

But to give you a small idea, when I started working with them a year ago, the budget for one of our channels was a quarter of a million a year. In the last 90 days, for that channel, we spent almost $500,000. We’re spending a lot more because we’re successful at what we are doing. The size of the company from a man power perspective increased 1/3 this summer when we added Charlotte to the list.

We’re growing. We’re moving into new offices and we’re putting gasoline on our advertising. You only do that when it’s working really well for you. I went through today and looked at campaigns I had created and the numbers they had generated and I felt good about what I had achieved. There are places where I can make comparisons because we’ve had some high priced consultants but I was eventually able to outperform their models.

We brought a new team member in a couple of months ago who is also very sharp and overall we have a nice team on which to build. We’re moving in a positive direction. It’s exciting to be doing well in a period like this.

We’re heading into a very exciting period of the fall – traditionally the biggest selling season of the month. I feel like I am going to the races!

And now for the question, “How was the meatloaf?” Ridiculously good. So good I have to get a good workout tonight. I have tweaked this recipie over time and it’s delicious. What’s in it?

1 lb ground Turkey

1 cup breadcrumbs

1 beaten egg

1/4 milk

3/4 to 1 cup Ketchup

1/4 cup A1 Sauce

1 packet of Lipton Onion Soup

1 tsp Parsley

1 chopped onion

1/2 tsp Salt

1/2 tsp Pepper

1 tsp fresh garlic

Mix your liquids together. Mix in the rest. Knead well. Put in a loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for an hour. Slice a loaf of french bread. Serve the meatloaf as meatloaf sandwiches on french bread. Delicious and low fat.


I recommend my homemade green tea with lots of fresh sliced lemon a little Stevia and Agave. It’s basically half green tea and half lemonade.

I also do a version of green tea with fresh oranges.
