They say tough times bring out the best in people. We’re guessing our current economic slump qualifies as a tough time, especially for small business owners like you. Is it bringing out your best?
A recession will test your character, and your response will determine what you’re made of. Will you advance or retreat? Whatever your response, it will be determined from by your internal motivation. Steven Covey once said, “Motivation is a fire from within. If someone else tries to light that fire under you, chances are it will burn very briefly.”
The last thing you should do is allow the recession to dictate how successful your business is. Rather than hunker down to wait out these tough times, you can take initiative and empower your business with a competitive edge, making it the premier financial provider in your area. But that choice is yours. Will you make it?
