It’s early in the downturn, and I’m already seeing some companies — mostly the new kids on the block — going under. It’s a shame. How can you guarantee you won’t be next? You can’t. There are no guarantees in business! But there is one thing you can do — work like a dog.
That’s my secret weapon: I love to work. It’s my comfort zone. (Yes, that probably reveals a lot about my psychological ink blot file, but I really don’t care.) That’s why I’m a survivor. I have been borderline wealthy and down to my last 17 cents. But I keep going.
My point? Want to survive (and maybe even thrive amid) the tough times we’re just heading into? Cancel that vacation, give up bowling night … and dig in for the long haul. — JRI
