I'm Exhausted, but in a good way...

There's something to be said for couples in business.
I have heard a few bad stories between partners,
but not as many between couples, altho I'm sure it's not rare.
Anyway, as a single person, there's no time to do anything!
I sure enjoy working, tho. It's a saving grace.
Spending is fun, but income coming in is rewarding.
I tended machines Monday, and look forward to checking in
with the next 4 locations after the weekend this Monday.

I'd like to sell my route

This is such a good route that I cannot sell it, but sure wish I could.
If u were a salesman, you could sell gum/candy/charities, but I don't
sell well, so it's slow-going.
Good machines, good people, no sales skills...

Still tending route...

Hello bloggers!
  I used to finish my route in about 1-3 days.
Because I have added several additional driving jobs, I am tending the route within around 1-3 weeks; rather than all of them in a day, it is a few machines a day.
From what I have seen so far, no one is getting neglected at all.
As always, feedback appreciated!

New Jobs, New Machines, New, New, New..!

   As mentioned previously, I have accepted several new jobs.
Being a courier, delivery, and driver, the new jobs are all on the road.
This means that while on the road for other companies, I am still available to attend to my bulk vending route.
This also means that Mondays are very much work-days, and even tho I can call my own hours, I fill up every waking moment with work.
Since the last post, I have removed machines and added locations.
I have tried blogging on the phone from my car, but does not work, must be on a laptop.
Thanku for your patience.
See u soon!

Right now, I am servicing 3 other jobs in addition
to vending route. Thanks!

How Long Do Bubblegumballs Last?

How long are my gumballs good for?

Ever wonder how long your gumballs will last? 
When will my gumballs expire? 
What is the shelf life of gumballs? 
We get these questions often and it just so happens that our bulk gumballs have a shelf life of 24+ months if stored in a cool dry place.
 In some circumstances they last even longer. 
We opened and chewed on a 850 count case that was still good three years after production. 
However, extreme climates and conditions can reduce the optimal lifespan of some boxes of gum.

Signed MSPA for Next Year..!

Okay, so MSPA isn't being held in L.A., or anywhere in Hawaii, or Florida coast, or even anywhere warm, Pittsburgh? Fine.
Anyway, I already signed up for next year.
Anyone and everyone should check out the MSPA.

Why? Because the meetings/seminars/speakers have incredible ideas they share that applies to ANY work-related field!
I'm not even sure they realize it, but the round-tables, vendors, and speakers were quite inspiring.
I only signed up for 1 talk, and it was only 1 hour long, went by too fast!
I couldn't believe the incredible information about mystery shopping that can apply to absolutely any field.
One part that was so amazing was a company I used to shop with all the time hires private investigators, real ones! How fun!

They don't train them, tho, just hire them.
Anyway, I was so inspired, that I went out and applied to at least about a dozen jobs, and most all of them responded back.
I accepted 3 of them!
Now I have the work I want, when I want.
It's just a matter of time to see if I make enuf to travel to the MSPA convention next year.
What the heck is in Pittsburgh?
The Pittsburgh Steelers are there, must be something to it...
