SAY NO to those Pesky Solicitors!

I am usually a pretty smart woman, with a good judge of character, but I did screw up and have decided to share my experience so others don’t fall into it. It is a frustrating way to learn. If you know anyone that could learn from my mistake PLEASE SHARE IT!

no solicitors 50 percentA couple months ago I was sitting at my business, minding my own business, and even though I have a No Soliciting sign on my door I had three solicitors come in. I should just start being rude and telling those people coming in that are begging for money, selling something, or asking for donations to read the door, but I am too nice and I usually listen to them and then politely tell them no.

The three solicitors were from a company called EMI and they are a T-Mobile authorized dealer. Just a few months prior to them coming in I had moved from T-Mobile to AT&T because T-mobile in my area pretty much sucks. The only good thing is that they are cheaper, and the only reason I can think of is because their service, like I said, pretty much sucks.

I told the three solicitors that and the very pushy little Asian girl was not having that and went on as to  how much better they have gotten and the deals they were having on phones…etc, etc. I listened and got sucked in. I flat out told her that I was not buying a phone for retail; she assured me that they had a sale for the Samsung S5 of $180. I told her that I did not want a contract and she assured me that I was just paying monthly for the service and phone and I could leave anytime and since my phone was only $180 that wouldn’t take long to pay off. I told her I was not paying a ton of money to start and she put a bunch of numbers on a paper and I was only suppose to pay a certain amount for two phones and a $80 deposit for each and we would be good. I told her that I needed Canada coverage and

A Mom’s Day off!

I started a new business a year ago and I cherish my day off. Every Monday is my day without kids and this is the day I get some “me” time. However, if you are a Mom then you know that the words “day off” are used very loosely. I decided to keep track of what I did not my day off and thought it would be fun to share it with my readers.

Here is this Mom’s day off…you know the day for ME!

I started at 6:30 am when I was rudely woke up to an alarm clock. But, I knew that as soon as I go the kids and husband out the door, my time was to start!

It’s time to take a stand and get the US & ourselves back!

The shopping age has changed drastically in the last few years. It used to be an all-day excursion to find the perfect gift with lunch at the mall with over-crowded food courts and crowds of people everywhere. Now a-days you will be hard pressed to find an oversized crowd at the mall. It seems a lot less people go shopping from day-to-day locally. This can be nice for crowd purposes but this is having an affect our economy, health and job environment.

Does this mean that people are buying less? The answer to that is NO, they are not. In fact now that on-line shopping has become more and more prominent, it is easier then ever for people to get bored or become addicted to shopping. Heck…you can even sit during a movie and spend hundreds to thousands of dollars without leaving the couch!

There are a lot of stores where you can buy items very conveniently, with fast shipping and even get deliveries on Sunday’s, but what shoppers don’t realize, or ignore, is the impact it has on the local economy.

I found an awesome flier that explains very well what this does and everyone should read it.

Here it is.
