It is a slow day in the small Saskatchewan town of Pumphandle , and
streets are deserted. Times are tough, everybody is in debt, and
everybody is living on credit.
A tourist visiting the area drives through town, stops at the motel,
and lays a $100 bill on the desk saying he wants to inspect the rooms
upstairs to pick one for the night.
As soon as he walks upstairs, the motel owner grabs the bill and runs
next door to pay his debt to the butcher.
The butcher takes the $100 and runs down the street to retire his debt
to the pig farmer.
The pig farmer takes the $100 and heads off to pay his bill to his
supplier, the Co-op.
The guy at the Co-op takes the $100 and runs to pay his debt to the
local prostitute, who has also been facing hard times and has had to
offer her “services” on credit.
The hooker rushes to the hotel and pays off her room bill with the hotel
The hotel proprietor then places the $100 back on the counter so the
traveler will not suspect anything.
At that moment the traveler comes down the stairs, states that the
rooms are not satisfactory, picks up the $100 bill and leaves.
No one produced anything. No one earned anything. However, the whole
town is now out of debt and looks to the future with a lot more
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how a Stimulus package works.

“IF you always do what you have always done,
you will always get what you have always got”.
Unfortunately, that’s not true anymore. Certainly not in business. All
businesses operate in a dynamic environment and competition is fierce. It gets harder and harder to compete with each passing day.
Your competitors would like nothing more than to take your customers from you. The ever-increasing competition cause standards to rise and customer expectations get higher all the time. This means that, if you always do what you have always done, you will steadily lose out to your competition. Eventually forcing you out of business.
It’s a case of keep up with the flow or get out of the traffic. To just survive in
business, you need to continuously increase the amount of value you add for your customers. If you want your business to prosper, you need a winning edge that makes you stand out among your competitors. Your winning edge must give existing and potential customers a good reason to do business with you instead of your competitors, and the reason must be compelling, ie, represent a significant benefit for the customer for you to prosper in the long term.
This means your business must have a sustainable competitive advantage.
Businesses with a winning edge use established operators in their industries as role models. But carbon copies are never as good as the original. If your going to use an existing business model, you have to plan for a way to stand out from all the others. It has to not just be a transformation on the surface, but benefits for your customers that allow you to stand apart from the rest. Otherwise, you become a “Me Too” operator.
This kind of business is often only marginally profitable and the quality of the customers is often not good. Doing business just like everyone else is hard, making you a marginal operator. Furthermore, serving this market puts you in a tenuous position. Marginal operators are the first to be wiped out when there is a downturn in the market.
Building a competitive advantage is the main thrust of strategic planning. Most business owners never get around to strategic planning and limit themselves to an operational focus in their businesses. This operational focus and a failure to think strategically are the main reasons for the appallingly high business failure rate. Don’t be a failing statistic!
Your business can be a winner if you make the effort to develop a strategy
and implement it systematically. A strategic plan will give you a good chance of achieving your potential and turning your business vision into reality.

About the author
The last 2 posts have been out of the ordinary and have nothing to do with marketing. Yet they have everything to do with marketing. As a small business owner, do you know how the new bill will effect you?
I received this email from a group to which I am a subscriber. I am simply copying and pasting it in its entirety. The representatives the writer refers to are mine in the state of Alabama. Find out who yours are by doing a Google search!
President Obama’s artificial, dictatorial deadline is
growing closer. The reconciliation process is crashing
forward. The “fix” bill has been posted. The bogus
CBO “estimate” has been leaked in lieu of waiting for the
All this contrived flurry of activity and its timing was
designed for one purpose: To give the impression that
ObamaCare’s passage is inevitable. That’s why the White
House has Press Secretary Gibbs issuing statements like,
“Our healthcare reform bill will be the law of the land
on Sunday.” It’s political drama at its worst.
But regardless of the socialists’ stagecraft, I believe
that we can STILL stop ObamaCare!
Yesterday, Liberty Counsel delivered a letter
to Members of the House citing the
unconstitutionality of “deem and pass” in the
way the socialists are using it. We urged them
to obey the rule of law, stop this reprehensible,
unconstitutional process and say “No!” to ObamaCare.
As it stands right now, the Democrats do not have the
necessary votes to pass ObamaCare through the House using
constitutional means. If they did, they would have called
a vote a long time ago and the President would be touring Asia.
So, to no one’s surprise, they are going to use the
unconstitutional legislative maneuver nicknamed “The
Slaughter House Rule” to pass the Senate bill by merely
“deeming” it so.
Nancy Pelosi said, “We will do whatever is
necessary to pass a health-care bill.”
Republican Leader John Boehner said, “The
American people are saying, ?top!’ and they
are screaming at the top of their lungs.”
Those statements from House party leaders do a nice job of
framing the colossal political showdown that is scheduled
for the House of Representatives this weekend. Even long-time
political leaders and seasoned congressional reporters say
this could be the most significant political event in our lifetime.
++The heat and pressure are reaching biblical proportions.
The Obama/Reid/Pelosi axis of power is pressuring undecided
Democrats with staggering inducements and threatening
potential mavericks with merciless punishment.
For his part, President Obama – who once again postponed his
Asia trip to better serve as Arm-Twister-in-Chief – is saying
that what happens to his healthcare reform bill will make or
break his presidency. The stakes could not be higher.
But Mr. President and Speaker Pelosi, don’t your
recent losses in the states of Virginia, New
Jersey and Massachusetts come to mind? Why do
you INSIST on ignoring and marginalizing the
++When Nancy Pelosi says, “There will be no more deals,” look
for the real back-room dealing to begin!
Pro-ObamaCare politicians and organizations know this is a
“no holds barred” brawl coming to the final round of the
fight. Unfortunately, the Obama/Pelosi/Reid axis is
successfully flipping some votes by using intense pressure
and targeted pay-offs.
* Rep. Bart Gordon (D-TN), announced his support
for ObamaCare after Democrats installed a provision
that sends Tennessee hospitals higher Medicaid
payments than other states are getting.
* After a promise of an immigration reform bill,
Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), announced his support
As demonstrated by the Gutierrez deal, pay-offs will not be
limited to the healthcare reform battle. That’s why Speaker
Pelosi cheerfully exclaimed this week that when they kick down
the ObamaCare door, a lot of other initiatives can pass through,
++With Student Loans tacked on, it’s a two-for-one takeover.
Here is a brief list of additional consequences we can expect
if ObamaCare passes:
* In a last-minute “sweetener,” the government
will grab power from the insurance industry and
the student loan industry simultaneously. Banks
and lenders will be cut out of the guaranteed
student loan business, which of course will cost
jobs. If ObamaCare passes, the government will
become the sole source for federally guaranteed
* Beginning in 2014, under the “individual mandate,”
Americans will be required to purchase insurance
or face stiff penalties for refusing.
* In an arrangement similar to KGB-style oppression,
ObamaCare will broaden IRS power, allowing that
agency to confiscate refunds or other payments
to Americans if there are unpaid penalties for
not buying “approved” healthcare insurance. The
IRS will have to hire tens of thousands of new
agents to enforce the law.
* The bill increases Medicare payroll taxes while
increasing Medicare cuts to over $500 billion.
Other tax hikes will be inevitable. The CBO’s
“estimated cost” of ObamaCare at under a trillion
dollars is tooth-fairy accounting, and wasn’t
even an official statement!
David, we are facing America’s fall into socialism.
ObamaCare itself, due to its “personal mandate to participate,”
is unconstitutional. The “deem and pass” process, coupled with
the so-called reconciliation process, is also unconstitutional.
The entire sordid strategy to force ObamaCare down America’s
throat strikes violently against the American rule of law!
++Congress MUST be made to hear OUR voice!
In these few remaining hours, we MUST counter the Left and
continue sending a powerful, focused message to each of our
own Representatives, wavering Members and pro-life Members
of the Congress.
Liberty Counsel’s FAX BARRAGE to Capitol Hill is telling
Congress, “NO TO OBAMACARE” and “NO TO THE SLAUGHTER HOUSE

recorded in Washington and to schedule your faxes now:
If you prefer to send your own faxes, we have provided all
the information you need to reach your Members of Congress:
ALSO… Please, today, CALL your elected officials and tell them
what you think about ObamaCare. This will likely require patience,
so please don’t give up if you get a busy signal or are placed
on hold for an available line.
Sen. McConnell 202-224-2541
Sen. Bunning 202-224-4343
Rep. Yarmuth 202-225-5401
David, the bottom line is that ObamaCare will
adversely affect every American.
This monstrous bill will grotesquely expand the power of the
government over our individual lives and personal liberties,
take control of an additional one-sixth of the U.S. economy,
overtake two more industries, impose one of the largest
tax hikes in history, all in the middle of a recession.
Americans will be taxed for four years before any benefits
are enacted. Ten years of taxation for six years of
benefits – that is truly a “socialist deal”!
And, ObamaCare allows for the greatest expansion
of abortion since Roe v. Wade – all coercively
paid for by American tax payers like you and me.
Please, click below to send your faxes, even if you have
already done so many times during this battle. You can also

Thank you joining with us in countering this outrageous attempt
to force socialized medicine and tax-payer funded abortions
on the American people.
God bless you,

regarding ObamaCare. Also, please forward the link to your
friends so that they can hear this important message. I
URGE you to send faxes now. Tell Congress “NO!” to the
anti-life, anti-family, anti-freedom healthcare “reform”
bill. Time is absolutely of the essence. Please, go here:
Again, thank you for all you have done!
