The world economy has stalled - and that's being generous. Nobody is buying. The financial markets are a wreck. Washington is clearly playing it by ear. Time to pull in the reins and lay low. Not!! Business history teaches us that now is precisely the best time to selectively invest, to improve one's competitive position, to re-think the business model, to grow. I realize that this position is counterintuitive to many, but business leaders who have been through several of these cycles before know that I'm right.
Let's imagine for a moment that you believe my position is correct. I offer several resources to support your growth initiatives in this month's newsletter. One of these resources is a collection of my own thoughts in the form of prior writings, both ad hoc and monthly. Others are more recognizable and auspicious. Take these various resources or leave them, but I believe you can find use for at least some of them as you move your business forward.
