Calling All Bootstrapreneurs

Nov 24, 2008
Be assured, the challenges of yesterday prepared us with the education, experience and insight to meet the complexities of tomorrow.  The entire nation faces an unprecedented challenge.  Our capitalistic economy, political fabric and personal mettle will be tested in the days and months ahead.  As a nation, we’ve finally reached the breaking point, where entitlement desires are bound by economic realities.

Be assured, the business environment of tomorrow will be a lot different from today’s.  The winners will be separated from the whiners with a healthy dose of tenacity, patience and long-term vision.  As a fellow business owner likes to say, “We develop bad habits during good times, and good habits during bad…”  Well, this is an excellent time to focus on the fine points of business management, marketing proficiency and leadership development. 

Be assured, the exact solutions to the current crisis do not exist.  Nevertheless, there is a  resolution.  We, American entrepreneurs, must resolve now to help our operations adapt to a new reality and grow the capabilities necessary to weather the inconsistencies of a wracked economy, government interventions, onerous tax burdens and political unrest.
