Talking Too Much: Some guys out there keep on talking like there’s no tomorrow to attain a girl’s attention. This is common with guys who lack social experience and is an obvious sign of being nervous.
However, most owners put the store up for sale and even end up selling when they NEED to and their back is up against the wall. The need to sell is for various reasons like divorce, default on notes, lack of enthusiasm, poor sales, there are as many reasons to sell as there are shops for sale. They often have to sell before the business has reached maturity and they try to get what they have invested in it, which is usually more than it is worth. The objective is to sell when they have an offer, as most often the offer will come from an observer that has been watching the business day after day and has a general idea of what is going on and wants to make an awesome offer.
Start Slowly: For exercise you can walk, run, swim, cycle or do static exercises in the gym or at home. I prefer a walking exercise program as it is easy and suitable for all ages. Exercise is good for you, but if you have not exercised for a long time, or have a medical condition, tell your doctor first. Then start slowly. The people who get into trouble are those who normally only walk to the Post Office each day, then suddenly decide to get fit by running five miles. That is not a good idea. Do enough exercise to get slightly breathless and then stop. If you are walking – when you may not get breathless at all – just begin with a short distance and work up to a mile or so a day. You will need to exercise at least 30 minutes each day for good results.
A good way to do a visual valuation is to watch the day to day operations and actually count the customers daily, foot and vehicle traffic over at least a month’s time. Yes, count. Sit inside the store but don’t be obvious. Observe and count! You will become a ‘regular’. This will also give you the opportunity to not only see the customer flow but also get an approximate of what the actual sales are. Sit close enough to hear what customers order and keep a generic tally. That will give you a little more vision of what IS reality.
OGo take a look at the type of house you have always wanted, stand in it, imagine you live there, imagine sleeping there, cooking there. Then go outside and look at your dream car on the drive (If you really want it to happen take a test drive in the real thing after the viewing).
Reduce Calorie Intake: A crash diet is one that reduces your daily calorie intake to under 1500 calories. Only do it if you are desperate to reduce weight for a special event. A better answer is to reduce calories by 300-500 a week. That will make you lose 1-2 pounds. You can do this by cutting out your coffee and croissant in the local coffee shop. But it is best to look at what you have been eating and try to live a more healthy lifestyle.
If you look good old fashioned diner coffee, take a stop into the Bear Swamp Diner, also on Main Street in Macungie. It’s a traditional diner, and you can get your eggs and bacon on the side while you drink your coffee. You may even make friends with a waitress or some of the regulars there.
One reason we may see the Locksmith is to get our locks changed. There’s not much we can do to avoid this part of dealing with these guys. Unless of course we change the lock ourselves! Spending an hour or so to change a lock is a bunch better than paying somebody 0 an hour to do it for you. If you aren’t so “hands on” you are better off providing your own hardware or else you may be paying an inflated price if the lock guys provide it.
