I run a business referral service whose greatest referral success has been my brother's animal trapping company (trapping raccoons, armadillos, opposums, humanely releasing them).
Now here in Naples, FL (as, apparently, all across the USA) most businesses in general have been almost dead since May. We, ourseves, only been getting a call maybe once every two weeks since then. Usually we get four/five calls a week.
Season is SUPPOSED to start Nov 1 (ppl start coming to Naples to visit) but there have been no "early signs" that I've seen that ANYBODY is coming here on vacation.
a) stick with the business until season starts
b) give up (for now) and get a temp job to make ends meet?
