"Penury Perpetuates Poverty"

Written by Robert Leggett might just believe I hide behind computers creating and updating my websites and researching potential markets. Well...I love to spend time "inrepparttar street"..."under fire"...whererepparttar 146505 "action is." As a copywriter wannabe...and I'm learning much...I talk to many people onrepparttar 146506 street as well as business owners. As a "hands-on" direct marketer, I pass out a lot of publicity pieces...and get a lot of feedback.

Recently...I spoke withrepparttar 146507 manager of a very "posh" restaurant. The publicity pieces they were distributing torepparttar 146508 general public reminded me ofrepparttar 146509 bad olde days prior to computers...where everything was "cut and paste" by hand. This was perhapsrepparttar 146510 worst PR piece I'd ever seen. It was even printed onrepparttar 146511 cheapest colored paper...which fades after 30 minutes exposure torepparttar 146512 sunshine. Yetrepparttar 146513 establishment looked great...great ambience...great location...great menu...great drinks...great! It also seemed empty most ofrepparttar 146514 time. Why? The owner is a "penny pincher."

There is a huge difference between temporarily having to be overly frugal and possessing a locked-in penurious mind-set. You can tighten your belt during hard times by being frugal. No matter whether times are good or bad...the penurious are always in a sad state...never having...or enjoying any abundance...which never seems to come their way.

Obviously...there is no business to be done here. My energy is better spent onrepparttar 146515 wannabe "movers and shakers."

I've been working with a very frugal client. His business has tremendous growth potential. He has a "killer" logo he didn't know he had. We worked hard on a "killer" slogan which can be modified to push whichever product/service he is offering at any time. While there isn't much remuneration possible at this time...I hope he becomes a long-term client. He is willing to try something different. He is frugal...but far from penurious.
