    I'm wondering whether the shock of Hurricane Sandy has led to a fall in consumer confidence,
    and whether that has caused your sales to fall over the last few days.


    Any ideas?

    Well...

    Besides being personally effected here in NYC.

    I lost sales in my finance niches being that the markets are closed.
    I lost some sales with client meetings I was suppose to have yesterday, and being there is no subway still probably won't happen till the end of the week.
    I lost about 18% of my normal sales volume, probably due to the HUGE power outages across the North East.

    It won't last long though...

    The worst disaster ever to effect my business was a tsunami in the Philippines when I had 15 workers in an office over there and it was completely wiped out. That took weeks to recover.

    Great, that's a big help. I genuinely hope everything returns back to normal for you asap.

    I'm planned to fly to NYC within the next month, so fingers crossed..
