For example, are you …

- Worried about your ability to obtain financing for additional locations, expansions, renovations and equipment purchases?
- Concerned about how the stock crisis impacts your ability to retire on time?
- Facing the possibility of having to lay some staff off?
- Anxious that this year’s holiday sales will plummet, seriously impacting 2008 growth and profitability?
- Looking for creative ways to further trim your budget and boost sales?
- Searching for an exit strategy?

Please share your concerns, questions, and, as always, your great ideas, by e-mailing Associate Editor Alison Shipley at [email protected]. Your responses will help shape the editorial in the pages of the magazine and on our website well into the New Year.
