Is This a Tough Time For Home Businesses?

by Mary Emma Allen on September 22nd, 2008


We’ve been discussing, in previous posts, ”signs of the times” to look for that indicate your business or others you’re dealing with are beginning to feel the stress of the current tighter financial times.

Shannon Cherry, in a current blog post, Tough times for entrepreneurs and startups?, at Startup Spark, discusses this topic, too, and indicates areas where things could be tighter in the future.  She mentions one area…customer service…where businesses (home based and otherwise) will have to be on their toes and strive harder.

Customers are going to expect more… more services, more payment options, more bonuses to keep them happy.

Chime in and let us know what you’re seeing in your business?
