Weekends are a great time to go out in the marketplace. People are looking forward to a relaxing couple of days and “let their hair down.” Encountering other company owners out there and sharing common off duty interests can lead to very profitable business ventures. Try it sometime and you’ll be surprised at how well this method works. There is nothing like shared experiences in a relaxed atmosphere to build a rapport and let one’s defenses down. Striking deals from one owner to another is very flexible, fast, exciting and will often be the beginning of long, valuable business relationships.
