When the going gets tough…

File 13I am reeling after a series of set backs and I am having to re-evaluate everything Belt Drive Betty Media does and how it does it.

I had a major advertiser whose marketing had been all approved and set up cancel their ads for no reason and with no notice. That advertiser has caused a 5 week delay in the release of our Rider Friendly Phone Book which will finally go to the press room this week once adjustments to the book are made.

file13And, as an editor, I can sure tell too.

The news feeds are filled with crash articles, many of them resulting in death.

Yes, most are from the US where the population is far greater and they have been riding a little longer that us here in Canada. The spike in the reports of crashes, injuries and fatalities started about a week ago and now instead of one or two crashes, the feeds are two and three pages of crashes.

AllegroFrancois introduced me to Christelle and Stéphane, the owners who are originally from France and are riders.

Stéphane and I talked a bit as he showed me around the B& B. Once I was safely ensconced, Francois headed off to change for dinner.

We went to the Allegro Italian restaurant for dinner and had a fabulous chat about motorcycling and tourism.  I have eaten at this restaurant during a previous visit to the region and while the food was wonderful, the service on this night was rather disappointing.  It seemed like the gal who seated us forgot to tell our very busy waiter that she had brought us to his section. We were on the verge of leaving when he came by and realized we had not been served. It happens, even in the best of establishments.
