In the last down economy, I got laid off.
In this down economy my businesses are up over 20%.
Now, I Think Like a LeaderYou can too…
5 Reasons I Love a Down Economy:
- I can hire great people
- Everything (yes, everything) is on Sale
- My competition fears a slow economy much more than they have ever feared me…
- <What do you love about this economy?>
1. Hire Great People
Great people get laid off. And they are willing to work for a discount (see #2). I spent 2009 fully staffed for the first time ever. Were you hiding or hiring?
2. Everything is on Sale
It’s a bad time to be without cash. And if you have cash, then you can get lots of discounts (and you can negotiate from a position of strength). What are you doing to save cash in up times?
My competition is so scared of the economy that they put themselves out of business. Saves me the trouble. And it’s much cheaper (see #2). Do you see gloom or opportunity?
The people who thrived during the gold rush weren’t the individuals seeking their fortune in gold. It was the hardware stores selling the picks and shovels. What are you offering?
In a world where you suddenly have to work to turn prospects into customers, I’m offering the wildly popular Elevator Pitch Workshops ( http://ElevatorPitchWorkshops.com ). Ask me about my e-newsletter discount (see #2).
