But What About The Economy?
Everyone is well aware that the world economy is, to put it mildly, slow. We hear people lamenting every single day about the cost of groceries and gas climbing. They complain they can’t afford to even go out and eat at a restaurant.
I can tell you one thing for sure – hoping won’t make things better. Hoping won’t makes things turn around all by themselves. Hoping won’t eliminate all the issues we face today as a people and as an individual.
The majority of people today are sad, disgusted, frustrated, angry, and tend to find blame wherever they can. The reasons vary. Some have been forced to retire early. Others have lost their jobs and haven’t been able to find another. Even more are realizing that their current job is possibly at risk as lay-offs and down-sizings continue.
Many say they hope things will get better. If you’re on the highway of hope, it’s time to take the next exit because “hoping” will take you nowhere. Action is required! If you’re one who has decided to take matters into your own hands, you are probably giving some serious thought to start your own business, whether with the help of a start-up kit, turnkey business package or a franchise.
The home inventory industry is growing, partly due to the increased awareness of the need for an inventory. The slow economy has encouraged people to find ways to protect what they own, knowing how hard they worked to get where they are today and realizing how difficult it would be to financially recover if they had a major loss. Baby boomers are called on to be executors of their parents’ or sibling’s estates. Banks are requiring business owners to provide a complete and thorough list of all assets before they will even consider offering a loan. This is a great time to begin a home and business inventory business because the demand is increasing.
There are other industries that are seeing growth. Do your homework, then do something!
You might be asking, “But what about the economy?” My question is, “What about it?” Seth Godin posted a blog titled, “The chance of a lifetime” in which he encourages us “to choose optimism, to choose action, to choose excellence.”
We create the life we choose to live. If enough decide to choose action, imagine what might happen! If we choose optimism, imagine the attitude adjustments that could happen overnight! If we choose excellence – excellence in everything we do – imagine the changes that can take place before our very eyes – in our own lives and in the lives we each touch!
