Food for Thought

 There's a great article on the CNNMoney.com Small Business Page right now:
"Why Amish Businesses Don't Fail". Check it out here.
Make sure you scroll down the page after the article and read the comments... 
{OK, maybe not all 2001 of them.... but some of them.}
Interesting perspectives on what constitutes a 'successful business'.

{I find it interesting that the story is set in Millersburg, Ohio...
My husband's mom's family is from there, as well as Fredericksburg, Ohio,
and there were MANY entrepreneurs and business owners in the family.}

my take on retail visual design:

"The thing is, retail design is driven by psychology. It is by manipulating space, visuals, lighting, sound, smell, and mood that we influence customers to enter, stay, browse, buy, and return. It is an endless exercise in change, endurance, growth, education, and imagination that enables retailers to stay on top of their game and at the forefront of their customer's minds. Yes, what you sell IS important - but even the very best merchandise won't sell at full price if it's presented in torn boxes on dirty shelves in a store that is too crowded to turn around in. Visual impact is a huge part of business, and utilizing the principles that have been proven to work can help you build a better business." ~ DWK
