In a Crisis there is Opportunity

In a Crisis there is Opportunity


Do it now becasue tomorrow was yesterday




From my experience. Yes thats right Opportunity. Not a word used much in the press at all.



How many of you business owners are having a great time? an ok time? a bad time? I have met many owners who have a mix of them all but mostly positive. I avoid negativity and the press like the plague (inc Trolls). Why? Because if I read too much bad stuff it drags my mood and emotions down and stops me making the right decisions to grow.



Why? because everytime I want to do something that will potentially increase my sales and I read something about how we are imploding I stop! I know you do the same, so I avoid it and just carry on. I hang around like minded people and mix with success stories and along the way encourage everyone in business to micro segment, have a growth plan, use technology properly, create customers first and all the other things I do which actually work, its what I did and still do so its very real no theory. There are many many opportunities out there and I have already this year given several of my ideas away that people are now working on and setting up in business for free ! So keep your eyes open, ears back and look at your business and see where the opportunity is. If you have hit a wall, a block as many of us do mix with the right people and do not be afraid to ask their thoughts on your business (and I dont mean ask your bank manager or accountant)

Good use of the iChing

I like your use of the characters in the game of Chinese Chess, and I can assure you that I will look for a way to sit down with the king, and suggest a business proposal.

Lyndon, Way back I came across a story about an old lady who got interviewed for her fabulous roses culture and how she kept fit throughout her life, both, including mentally. She responded along the line . . . I don't read newspapers, don't listen radio, don't watch tv. Like you commented yesterday or so along the line that you don't attend 'networking' events but enjoy the occasional rare private dinner party. And in combination with your preference for PR . . . you use the press, the journalists, the papers, etc. . . . in the way that you lead the way. In that context your post absolutely makes sense to me. Gary Barlow did something similar yesterday me thinks . . . Oh, and yes, Crisis and Chance are the same words on one coin.

Dear Alan, No offence but I'm with Lyndon on this subject. I agree, we are in recession. However, there is still so much opportunity, you can't even immagine. All too many business people, politicians, bankers ( and members of the press ;-) sorry) seem to focus on the problems. I think the crisis will be solved by sme entrepreneurs! Stop spending time on complaining about the crisis! Just get on with grabbing opportunities? How many people you know that work for a salary have had a drop in income? How many people you know have less money in their savings account? People as just scared to spent money People just demand more for the money they spent And bussinesses waste time on complaining rather than ask their cutomers how they can offer them what they are willing to pay for! I spent a lot of time talking and LISTENING to consumers. They are happy to tell me how I can ake money on them? The opportunities lay in front of you in the streets, all you have to do is bend over and grab them? Why should the press not start a series of publications on how the crisis has inpired businesses to do better? Let's get things moving again and stop the crisis! We can do it, you and me with the help of all others? When shall we start? Fred Rutgers

Lyndon, I praise your positivity and wish you well with Ecademy. However, I'm disappointed that you should carry on the criticism of journalists for reporting news. We don't make the news, we write about it. Alas, the constant criticism of my profession of 35 years is one of the reasons I gave up my PowerNetworker status at Ecademy after 8 years. I'm sorry to see that the same sentiments are still around under new ownership. Nonetheless, I wish you every success, and should you ever wish to be interviewed for my web radio show, I'd be happy to chat. Best wishes Alan
