Wow! Wow! Wow!
I have talked to some people in 2018, and I have consistently heard that things are moving slowly. From an outside look, yes, I believe things are moving slowly. However, on the inside, companies everywhere are stepping up with investments in new processes, hiring new employees, adding new vendors and suppliers. Companies are positioning themselves to have a solid 2018. I think everyone is quiet these days, but we see signs of a significant breakout. Unemployment is at its lowest. In the real estate market, available homes for sale are lower then they have been in years. State and local governments are trying to finalize budgets after months of discussions and debates.
My advice to you is get out. Get out and start talking. Find out what is happening with your clients. Make sure you are ready to meet their changing needs. Be ahead of the curve. I love this quote.
“If everything seems under control, you’re not going fast enough.” Mario Andretti
Speed is the name of the game. At my company, we are working hard to position it for growth. We have many project initiatives that we are implementing as we speak. We need to get things done faster than ever to give us the best possible position we can be in for 2018.
Be ready! It may seem like things are slow these days, but don’t get caught in that trap. There is much work happening behind the scenes.
