Next month we are going to be posting the results of our own survey, that, while not as entertaining as Family Feud, will we be informative and help you run your business more effectively and understand the current trends. We’re also giving away a Kindle Fire to one lucky contestant who sends in a completed survey. See page 49 for a link to our survey forms.

That’s pretty staggering when you put it in perspective. That means a lot of potential business for our industry if we could capture it all.

It turns out there are roads through those cornfields, with 18 people per bike, which beat the national average by 50 percent! Read the full story here (http://tinyurl.com/kgx4jwh)
