In 2007 I wrote about it and prepared for it cuz I saw in coming.
In 2008 we were in New York City when they were jumping out of windows.
In 2009, 2010, 2011 we lived thru the fallout.
In 2012 we started rising from the ashes and by the end of 2013 we may be roaring back. My first post about this just 2 days ago.
Folks need to learn what recessions look like. Both going into a recession and coming out of a recession. The tide is rising. Not for all. There are many many folks that the tide is still getting lower. They have yet to bottom out. But for the vast majority, folks have adjusted to the new normal and that brings the market back to more normal levels for those that have survived.
Now there are plenty of challenges we still face. But that is all they are, challenges. How do you approach a challenge? Do you approach it as a challenger or a Champion? It makes a difference. It makes a difference in the outcome and the path. And if you do it right, sometimes you will come to it as a challenger and sometimes you will come to it as a champion. But you should always walk away victorious.
The worst is over and the earlier you realize that the more you can take advantage of it. There will be movement this summer and it will continue into the fall and then I think 2014, 2015 and 2016 could be rip-roaring good!
That's what I see. Take it or leave it. Your choice. But imho we have turned the corner from survival mode to something that will produce lots of movement and new opportunity.
Have a GREAT Day!
