Ready, Set, Start a Business
Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you (Ben Bernanke?) are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
Alright, that's a little over the top, but I can't help but think that we are approaching the opportunity of a lifetime. Not to be a stock jock hero, but to start a business. There is so much consolidation out there, people who have the gumption, who have some drive and skill, it is time for them to step up. Stop talking about it and du it.
I am not going to go long and hard into this, but if you have been discouraged, have succumbed to negativity, it is time or darn close to time to be a contrarian and start something for yourself. Starting a small business in these dark times might be exactly the right thing to do.
Here's a little wisdom from a local business coach I know: http://www.servicecoach.biz/why-generation-xers-are-getting-the-shaft-in-todays-business-climate/
