Last week I wrote the post, “Candle Wax + Rising Fuel Cost = Zero Profit” and was amazed at the responses I got almost immediately. I want to thank everyone who took the time out to read and respond to my article. I took all of your comments into careful consideration.
In response to my article; reader Mark Riffey wrote “Quitting For The Wrong Reasons” on his blog, Business Is Personal. I really enjoyed reading Mark’s post written from his point of view and the quality comments it produced.
I realize from the business side that shutting down my candle shop was probably not the best or smartest choice. However, I had to make that decision because it worked best for me at the time. Not to worry though, your comments have given me new focus and the courage I need to move forward.
