There is always opportunity in a crisis situation. I amrepparttar eternal optimist so I always look forrepparttar 124229 good when bad things happen. Sort of like, all clouds have a silver lining kind of outlook.

Here is a Chicken Little joke about how a second grader saw an opportunity in that potential sky falling incident.

A teacher was telling her studentsrepparttar 124230 story of Chicken Little. She asked Mary what she thought Farmer Brown said when Chicken Little knocked on his door and told himrepparttar 124231 sky was falling. Little Mary thought for a moment and then replied..........I think Farmer Brown said....Holy shit, a talking chicken!

You see, Mary thought for a moment and concentrated onrepparttar 124232 talking chicken aspect of that whole disaster, and could have cared less whether or notrepparttar 124233 sky was falling.

As publishers, that's what we should be doing. Looking for, and finding out about new laws and what's good for our subs. They are counting on us to give them honest and accurate information.

We cannot ask them to re-subscribe inrepparttar 124234 next 48 hours, or they will be deleted from our sub base, because of repparttar 124235 new laws. When we do that, we are sending a message to them that we were not aware of things we should have been. I myself did not re-subscribe to two newsletters because of that reason.

We have to do our homework and be on top of situations before they happen. When I sawrepparttar 124236 trend of re-subscribing starting to develop, I started asking questions of people I trust, and did my own research.

I did not send my subs a re-subscribe email, because I knew I was handlingrepparttar 124237 new subs correctly. That's not being an in -your-face know it all, that'srepparttar 124238 honest truth.

When we react hastily to any given situation we give up some of our credibility as a professional. We don't want to do that, nor do we want to create undo panic inrepparttar 124239 subscribers we all work so hard to gain.

So, to everyone that publishes an ezine or newsletter, including myself. I say, let's all remember this....... Hey Chicken Little, The Sky Ain't Fall'in.
