A Message from
PDCA President Mark Pollock

As I write this column, the outside temperatures are rising, and business volume is declining. What to do?
It seems to me that you have two choices: shrug your shoulders and hope that that things pick up eventually. Or, use this time to take positive action to improve your finances.

May I suggest something to consider: EDUCATION. How long has it been since you learned a new spotting technique? A new marketing idea? Gotten up to speed on new OSHA regulations?
