The political climate is off the rails, but the stock market is reaching new heights.

A strong stock market usually indicates a high level of confidence in the strength of the economy. And that usually means good sales. But there also seems to be a high level of hesitation keeping people from wanting to spend.

It feels like people are holding back, waiting to see how everything that is up in the air right now will land.

No one really knows what is coming down the track. We are in unprecedented territory right now and while people are hopeful, they are also uneasy. We are out of our comfort zone and that's never been good for small businesses.
