The business world has changed. There are more new business start-ups now than at any other time in history. More people are going into business to chase their dreams and to break out of the neverending layoff cycle. Talented, capable people are tired of being at the whim of others and are working hard to make their dreams come true.
When the economy is upside-down, anything can happen.
Anyone can reach their dreams with hard work, audacity and belief. There are millions of people all over the world starting a business from their home; in addition to their regular day job. They are all trying to realize their dreams of a better life.
The Internet is the great equalizer. The same business tools I sell to big companies are now available to everyone. For ten years, I've been the managing director of R-Squared Computing. Before that I was part of the great Internet bubble of the 90's. I worked as a Sampsonite gorrilla; beating up software trying to make it break. I remember token ring, BNC adaptors and other things non-tech people don't care about.
Project management, painless backup or you can just hire virtual IT engineers to care for your computer 24/7/365. Just three powerful tools that you can use to make your business run better and to gain competitive advantage. And every last one of them have been made possible by the Internet. Now, your micro business can have the same power and tools as the multinationals.
Intelligently applied technology can give your business an enormous edge. Project managment software really just helps you to plan and stay organized. Painless backup is so you can sleep well knowing your critical business information is safe. Virtual IT engineers keep the machines humming and making money for you.
So, just because the economy is diving, the giant companies are out begging and the world is falling apart, it doesn't mean you shouldn't chase your dreams. Warren Buffett says when people are greedy, be cautious; when they are cautious, be greedy. Buffett didn't become impossibly rich by being stupid or wrong.
Now is the time for you to grab hold of your dreams and start building your business. Don't wait! When the business world is upside-down, opportunities for growth are everywhere. Get started today! What are you waiting for?
