Thoughts about business and economic development in rural areas.

Do you take directions or take charge?

What kind of person are you? Are you the type of person who asks others what needs to be done and how they want it done and then work your tail off to deliver exactly what was expected? Or are you the type of person who learns what needs to be done and then finds a new and innovative way to exceed everyone’s expectations. Both approaches have merit but during challenging economic times only one will help you prepare for the future.

The media tells us every day how bad things are. If we follow their directions we will pull in our horns, proceed cautiously and focus on survival. If we take charge we may discover opportunities that the current economic situation may be offering us.

An example. State budget shortfalls are leading to cutbacks in service. But doesn’t that open the door for private businesses to step in where the state has left a vacuum? People are being laid off. Talented, experience people. People who want to work. Isn’t that an opportunity to add some top shelf talent to your staff? You may not be in a position to hire someone full-time right now but more than likely you may be able to get some of them to freelance for you on a project by project basis. As the economy turns for the better you’ll have worked with several people in a variety of situations. You’ll know which ones to bring on board when you can offer a more permanent position. Try before you buy and everyone benefits in the process.

Are there challenges in today’s economy? Certainly. But there are also a host of opportunities. It’s all up to you. You can either take directions or take charge.

deliver them a Thank You card. Allow them know how crucial they are to you and that it doesn’t have to be a vacation to get a card from you. In the act of producing Thank You cards, you are deflecting the damaging out of your thoughts and filling thoughts with the optimistic. And most importantly, you are taking action

Fantastic blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused .. Any suggestions? Thanks!

I do love the way you have presented this concern plus it does offer me personally some fodder for thought. However, because of what precisely I have seen, I just hope as the actual feedback pile on that men and women continue to be on issue and don’t embark upon a soap box associated with some other news of the day. Still, thank you for this exceptional piece and though I do not necessarily concur with the idea in totality, I regard the viewpoint.

The core of your writing while appearing reasonable in the beginning, did not settle properly with me personally after some time. Somewhere within the sentences you actually were able to make me a believer but only for a very short while. I nevertheless have a problem with your jumps in assumptions and one might do well to help fill in those breaks. In the event you can accomplish that, I will surely be amazed.
