Anyone coastin till '06 ??

I am in Sales and have like 3 deals I am trying to bring in by year end - Then, in '06 I am moving into a bigger and better book of business and cannot prospect that book until Jan - Soooo, I have called into the 3 deals trying to get them to move, notified my current book of business that I am outtie as of Jan and provided new contact info of my replacement - What I am trying to say is I am friggin BOARD! - I never really have "down time" at work - I am either trying to bring in new business, grow current business or tackle internal issues - Well, most folks have checked out for the year and I am going ape shit with nothing to do

Anyone else in the same situation or close to it? I am just sitting here watching my little "Sygate Client" record where I am going on the net and wondering just how much they really watch

Similar situation for me, between Thanksgiving a Christmas are usually really slow, the last 2 weeks were suprisingly busy but this weak has slowed sharply, I have a couple of clients Im working now but overall pretty slow. I dont expect to be busy till after the first of the year.

I'm the opposite. I have to preare and count a $1.5 million inventory of truck parts, deal with the regular stuff, and deal with the cold weather we've been having. Cold weather is mean to heavy trucks. Right now I'm doing quite a bit of procrastinating, christmas shopping, and other various things I shouldn't be doing.

Oh well, I'll have something done by this weekend around here me thinks.

I had a Great year with investments. I closed out everything in the first week of December and called it a year

We usually get slower over the winter. Work comes and goes with the construction seasons: there's usually a burst of activity in the middle of November (called, "we really need the heat on by Friday so the plasterers can get to work") and another in April (called, "we need the air conditioning on by May 1 so we can close") and not that much in between. Most of what's going on now is just paperwork: people needing contracts by the end of the year, and stuff like that.
