I O The Julian News 5 My Thoughts by Michele Harvey A Very Good Christmas Story This year my son Thomas decided to spend Christmas with his sister and her family in Moscow, Idaho. The idea seemed like a good one so he got a round trip bus ticket and headed north. Winter storms interrupted his progress and he was stuck in the Salt Lake Utah bus station for 2 days. Thomas's wallet was stolen while he was sleeping with all of his money and his ID which left him in a strange city with no way to buy food, and no one could wire him money because he needed his ID to receive it. While he was stranded at the bus station, people came in with Christmas gift bags. Others walked in with armloads of pillows and blankets for the stranded travelers. The gift bags contained sandwiches, chips, candy and a book. The food and book was a great idea for a stranded traveler. Thomas got two books because he received two meals. Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut and Night by Elie Weitzel kept him busy reading and the time he was stranded went by faster. I talked with Thomas several times Christmas day. He made it as far as Boise Idaho, again stranded. The Boise bus station closes at 11 p.m. so the bus company reserved motel rooms and arranged meals for all the stranded passengers. Thomas' sister's husband has relatives near Boise. They collected $75.00 for Thomas to take with him on his trip home. Though Thomas is without his ID and his money was stolen, he could be worse off. Thanks to the kindness of strangers he had a warm place to sleep; he had food, he had books to read and he had a telephone to keep in touch with his family. It's nice to know that some people do little things that are so meaningful for people they will never know, yet they see a need and fill it. I thank these people in Salt Lake City, Boise and throughout Idaho who were so kind, giving my son and other stranded people a bit of Christmas cheer. May the Happy Holidays for us all last throughout the year. These are my thoughts. Small-Business Owners Put The Web To Work (NAPSA)--America has entered into the "Age of the Entre- preneur." According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, small businesses employ roughly half of the U.S. workforce. Consider that approximately 65 percent of these small businesses are funded by the business owners themselves, and the stress involved in being your own boss becomes clear. While there are many upsides to running a small business, own- ers often struggle to stay on top of their finances, paperwork and marketing while also making enough time for their families. However, many entrepreneurs have discovered how to put the Internet to work for them to auto- mate the manual work that used to weigh them down. For small busi- nesses, the Interuet can be the key to increased sales and a simplified, streamlined business. And thanks to new online programs, anyone can get started, even if he or she doesn't already have a Web site. Marketing automation soft- ware, from companies such as Infusionsot. allows entrepreneurs to run and grow their business while also saving time by central- izing, streamlining and automat- ing the business. Infusionsoft combines the features of several small-business solutions to pro- vide a hands-free way for small businesses to track prospective and current customers, automate marketing processes and increase sales, without adding staff. The key to this technology is a system that regularly follows up with prospective and current cus- tomers so they don't fall between the cracks. Establishing always- on marketing, as well as automat- ing other business processes such Automating follow-up procedures makes it easier for smell busi- nesses to retain customers. as billing, can give business own- ers their lives back. Why such a focus on automating follow-up? Small-business gurus agree that the main cause of busi- ness failure is follow-up failure, which causes potential and existing customers to slip away, taking their money elsewhere. Follow-up be- comes increasingly important as businesses of all sizes are turning to onlLne mm-keting programs to get in front of potential new business. The Internet has a vast number of potential customers, and recent studies report that the average adult spends up to three hours a day more on the Internet than he or she spends watching TV, and about 70 percent of Americans reg- ularly go online. Given the huge numbers of potential customers online, automated ibllow-up mar- keting software lets small busi- nesses get the most out of market- ing by automatically capturing leads and executing follow-up cam- paigns, so that business owners can focus on doing what they love.

These methods include: Wearing uniforms with patches similar to those worn by fire department staff, giving the impression that they are from the fire department. Claiming they are fire marshals and authorized to close the business if not allowed to do an inspection of the fire protection systems and make subsequent repairs. Claiming they are there to service fire extinguishers or hood and duct systems prior to the date those devices are to be serviced. Claiming they are at a business to provide service on extinguishers or hood duct systems that have previously been serviced by another company. In many cases, when hired by the business owner, they will do sub-standard work without proper building code inspections. Investigators believe that American Fire Protection, which is based in Camarilla (Ventura County), operates throughout California, from the San Francisco Bay Area to Sacramento in the north, through the central valley counties of Tulare, Kings, Fresno, Madera, Merced and Mariposa, continued on page 9
