There are a lot fewer people complaining about the recessions these days! The mood is turning to one of optimism as we begin to move out of this major glut that we hit. There has probably not been a better time to take the entrepreneurship route than now. Employers are still not hiring as much, and pay scales have come down, or contain a hiring variable component on performance. If you are someone who has graduated recently, or exploring options, take this opportunity to discover what you truly want to do in life. At the moment you probably have few responsibilities and a lot of the energy. Around you are broken pieces, and no one seems to be going about fixing them. Find one of these pieces that you do or may enjoy fixing, and pursue it like there is no tomorrow.
I am sure you are thinking that it is a lot harder than that. Actually, to tell you the truth, the only factor separating someone on the sidelines to those on the field, is that the person on the field made a conscious choice to take action and put him/herself out there. These last two weeks have been absolutely crazy for me. It is like everyone I talk to has discovered a rapidly growing niche which is presently unfulfilled by the current providers. Discussions these days revolves around how to find the right people , get some seed funding, and begin executing these ideas. These are the people, who, instead of seeing a doom and gloom scenario, see million dollar opportunities all around them.
For an idea to take shape, it requires to be bounced around, to get feedback. Anyone reading this blog, who has the opportunity to pursue what they have always wanted to, and needs a sounding board for their idea, please get in touch. I will do my best to connect you with whoever I can within my network and assist you in whatever way possible. Take the first step and ask! Times like those we are living through, do not come about very often. We have to do whatever it takes to capitalize on the opportunities on hand, before someone else does! I look forward to hearing from you soon.
