This is not necessarily an easy time to be in any business -- certainly not our business. For any number of good and not-so-good reasons.
And it seems to me that the number of individuals and organizations offering their services to help drum up new business has grown. We get a lot of e-mails from this list or that service or that individual who used to do new-business development. We're talking close to out of the woodwork here.
Unfortunately, it's one of those things that if you had the business you wanted, you'd be able to afford to hire someone to look for new business, but then, if you've got the business you want and can afford to hire someone, then maybe you don't really need to have someone looking for new business unless you need more business because you don't have enough, but then you can't really afford it probably anyway.
Or something like that, you know?
