The Creative Balancing Act

Here's another unusual niche: create income by offering pet pics with Santa!

Since many Maui folk have been laid-off or given less work hours because of the lack of revenue from tourism, they are becoming very creative with money-making ventures.

Has this happened in your neighborhood or city too?

That's very cool! :-)
Here I have not heard any new initiatives due to the lack of tourism... yet!

Hi Kuanyin! We always had pics with Santa around here, but usually there were only pics, no pets... ;) I wonder, if tourism is going down in Maui, what's happening everywhere else...
In a different mood, Blogtrotter is now at the Bardo Museum; some of the best Roman mosaics in the world! Enjoy and have a great week!

Now that's a smart idea. I'm not sure
how my dogs would react but I'm sure there are plenty of animal owners who would go for this.

Here too times are tough and getting tougher even really good restaurants are closing but France doesn't really encourage the entrepreneurial spirit.
