ISSA show take aways:

Despite the early date of the show this year, the people that came were there to do business. We had good steady traffic at our booth for Tuesday and Wednesday. The last day is always the last day. We were pleasantly surprised to have a lot of international visitors to our booth. We met new prospects from South Africa, Peru, New Zealand and China.

Great golf again this Sunday and the award of the Fedex Cup gets closer. How about $10,000,000.00 for winning the big one? Makes you consider taking up golf.

Have a great day and an even better sales week!
