XCFeedsOUT WITH THE OLD

FasterSkier FasterSkierDecember 31, 2009

I am not exactly sure where this entry is going. The flury of holiday activity, being busy at the shop, skiing with family, racing in the rain have all kept my attention. I have today off. Dani is at work and Erin, Adam and Corbin are at the supermarket getting the necessary fixings for New Years Eve. It is snowing in Bend. The house is quiet. My thoughts, like dust from a passing whirlwind, have a moment to settle. br /br /Those of you who know me know that I am new to the world of retail. I have been a teacher pretty much since I was 12 when I was teaching the beginner swim lessons in Manchester, VT in 1960. I am enjoying learning something new and incorporating my skill set to my contact with many of you reading this. From my point of view there is a lot of teaching involved in retail. People have to have accurate information in order to make the right choice when buying skis, boots or wax. That is what I try to do. br /br /At the end of the year with 2009 about to become history, I am looking back and examining the lessons I have learned. I could also use some help and perspective from any of you folks who read this and have had dealings with us here at WebSkis. Since I often hear the voice of my father telling me that any job worth doing is worth doing well, and since I am a relative rookie at business, I know that to do my job well I need to continue to learn so that I can do the job better. br /br /I do know that even with a slow economy our ski business has been gradually improving. Looking at last year’s numbers, we have sold a few more pairs of skis, a few more boots, and our numbers of local customers for service are increasing. I have to believe that we are doing some things right. Not all sports equipment retailers are improving business statistics. So I have a pretty good read on what we have done. That is history. Now I am pondering the future. Sure, this is an undisguised commercial message. And we all know that when we are making money in our professional endeavors we pay the rent, the heat, the electric bill and shop at the supermarket. It all works to spread the wealth. br /br /Now we have a pretty good inventory of top of the line skate skis and a few classic skis. I would enjoy being able to move the skis from the racks here at WebSkis to the feet of the right skier. Check the website for more information.br /br /Thanks to all of you who have called with questions, come to wax clinics, looked at skis or shopped on-line. Think about what worked well for you. Consider suggesting what might work better. You could respond to this post or drop me an e-mail note at bert@webskis.com. br /br /Oh, the family is back. Time for Corbin and me to play in the snow. Next year we can ski together. br /br /a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://www.webskis.com/uploaded_images/snowman-nose-745467.JPG”img style=”display:block; margin:0px auto 10px; text-align:center;cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 300px; height: 400px;” src=”http://www.webskis.com/uploaded_images/snowman-nose-744591.JPG” border=”0″ alt=”” //adiv class=”blogger-post-footer”img width=’1′ height=’1′ src=’https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/6589659500745667109-3996995534423911402?l=www.webskis.com%2Fwebskisblog.html’ alt=” //div
