Quite literally, I am receiving memo's in my email like the memo below daily. Twenty years in business and I plan for 3%-5% inflation when I bid projects. The inflationary increases you see below range from 5% to 30%. Figures that are not sustainable in a business environment. These are the challenges I am facing daily as a businessman right now. My wife buys the groceries. Those weekly costs have increased more than 30%. Gas at my local station is a dollar more a gallon than it was this time last year. Heck, the dog treats I buy for the office dog have doubled in cost in the last three months. Here's the reality folks..... Businesses are seeing unprecedented cost increases all across the board. Not some business... All business. And in order to remain viable, those costs simply have to be passed on to the consumer. And that is only if that business is able to source the products for his customer base. We are at a critical juncture here and nobody is talking about it. Why???
