Oh well, it’s Carnival Time…

...And everybody’s havin’ fun.”

New Orleans is celebrating, business is put on hold, and the rest of the country is envious.

I just ended a conference call discussing an upcoming round table conference with fellow publishers from around the country.  We discussed how the start of 2015 is affecting our businesses and what the first quarter is going to look like.  I explained that our company’s March issues wrap up early during Mardi Gras this year, so we are on an accelerated schedule.  That got me thinking – I wonder what February is like in other cities.

As the region gears up for Mardi Gras and the two-week stretch of Carnival Season, I want to know how your company gets things done. How do you run your business with the added distractions of Mardi Gras and the upcoming festival season? What accommodations do you have to make, not only for local clients, but for those you have nationally who will not be affected by Carnival season?

I would love to hear from you, so drop me a note – Todd@BizNewOrleans.com – and as Al “Carnival Time” Johnson says,

 

"Oh well, it's Carnival time.. And everybody's havin' fun."
