Marketing, School Spirit Items / 15.01.2018

As a business owner, a common goal is to be #1 in your market. Your market might be only your local town, your region, or nationwide. For some companies, it could even be international. Either way, your company must have excellent relationships with your suppliers to reach that goal. You can't dominate your market if you have unreliable suppliers. Your suppliers must be trustworthy, fairly priced, and reliable. They must be willing to work with your company to overcome challenges if they arise, which any business owner knows far too well these "challenges" can show their face at the most inopportune times. On the flip side, you must be willing to reciprocate the business relationship with your suppliers. That means not beating them up on pricing. It means being loyal. It requires good communication.

  The Summer season signifies it's time for schools to focus on their football season. High school students and teachers may be out for the summer break, but football coaches are hard at work with training camps for their players, planning strategies for the upcoming season, and tryouts for new players. For those who manage fundraising campaigns for the school booster club, attention now must turn to the upcoming football spirit items.

Whether we voted for this man or not, he is our new President and we will support him as long as he keeps the best interest of the American people in mind while performing his Presidential duties.
