Seems to me like the recession has hit bottom and the economy is starting back up.
It’s not just sales at our company which are picking up. It’s also people I know and talk to, like the other 24 investors in my angel investor group which met last week; most of them are business owners. And people at the local Chamber of Commerce and Small Business Development Center.
Yesterday I did the business plan section at a quarterly day-long SCORE workshop on starting or running a business. We had twice as many people yesterday as three months ago and six months ago.
I’m sure it’s going to be a long, hard, climb back up. We can’t get around the economic impact of so many people out of work, so many home loans in trouble, and so many people’s paper wealth worth a lot less now than a year ago.
Still, at least I think we’re starting to go up instead of down.
i agree for anecdotal reasons also. my sister looked for a job for a very long time and could only find temp work. she starts a “real” job with benefits next week. cool!
