This week on "Open for Business" I discuss how to keep your business head above water during tough economic times. If you've missed any of my previous podcasts you'll find re-plays of them all at www.smalltownmarketing.com .

Why is Circuit City out of business but Best Buy is still here. Border's Books is gone but Barnes & Nobel are still sending books out the door. In Bozeman, we lost a Linen's & Things to the "out of business" ax but still have a Bed, Bath & Beyond. Why are these stores gone? I'll explain why. Which will you be a year from now? Would you like to still be in business?

Perhaps this weeks podcast can help. Click the left triangle in the black bar below to listen:
