I noticed in a national magazine last month that they have an advertisement from the Seasonal Source folks again this year promoting seminars on how to do holiday decorating. You can get the details here. Some of the classes have already been held, but there are other sources for these type classes and materials on the Internet as well, you just have to get busy and look.
I know from talking to some of our clients that have gotten involved with holiday decorating that they make darned good money during November and December and early January doing this kind of work. Now I keep hearing, almost daily from many of you that work is slow. Here is a chance to hurry work up a bit. No, it is not year around stuff, but it helps keep the bills paid and provides some extra income that can go towards advertising your specialty. If you advertise now, you won’t have the “downtime” in January, February and March as too many construction-related businesses do.
The Good Lord will help you move mountains, my friends, but you got to bring your own shovel. Learning how to do this kind of work is just part of the moving process.
