- “Old school” marketing still works. Get your name out there whether it’s flyers, grab bags, coupons, etc.
- Cheap isn’t loyal. Loyal customers know you and want to do business with YOU, not the impersonal big-box retailers!
- Business is not about selling, it’s about building relationships.
“Failure was never an option for either of us. That was our mantra. We so sick of men telling us we couldn’t do something.” -Lorinda Van Newkirk
“If someone tells you no, go ahead find someone else who says yes.” -Lorinda Van Newkirk
