Default How's business?

I haven't been around in a while but have been really busy. The bouncer season has been out of control.

How's everyone doing? How's business? Any cool events? Is Doug still the New Jersey movie screen king?

Hey, what's up? Yeah, I haven't been on here much either. My son was admitted to the hospital in April, just got discharged last week. He was diagnosed with Crohn's disease. He had surgery and a long recovery.

Needless to say, I am WAY behind booking parties. I pretty much put everything on hold. But, it might have been a blessing in disguise. I decided to switch things up this year. I'm actually trying to put together a rental package, something simple hopefully. My goal is to have customers rent the equipment and operate it themselves, rather than have me attend each party. I was faced with the decision of either raising my rates, or simply call it quits. I know that I'm in the minority when I say that I am opposed to raising rates, but I just feel that my business would not thrive as well if I charged more.

Anyway, good to know that things are still working for you. My freakin' phone has been ringing off the hook, and I've been pretty much ignoring it. Let me know if you want me to refer anyone your way. Are you near Clinton Township? Got an email from a group there yesterday.
