What Will You Tell Your Grandchildren about the “Good Old Days?”Written by Noel Peebles
When your children or grandchildren ask about “The Good Old Days” and what you were doing in first decade of new century... those times of great prosperity... that “Golden Age Of Opportunity”… “The Greatest Entrepreneurial Boom In History”... what will you tell them? What were you doing? Did you capitalize on wealth that was being created all around you? Will you tell them how you positioned yourself to take advantage of opportunities that abounded? Or will you explain that you decided not to take part, or how you just missed out? We’ve all looked upon past as being “the good old days”…those times when life seemed so much easier, less complex… when life was slower, safer… and less competitive than what we are faced with today. Those were times when best opportunities existed… all best opportunities were snapped up years ago… weren’t they? And what about little guy in business, small entrepreneur… he doesn’t have a chance anymore against powerful resources and might of those giant international corporate firms… does he (or she)? Don’t believe it! Almost every week without fail someone says to me something like “you were lucky you started in direct marketing business when you did… there were lots of opportunities then…it’s too late now, by time I get started market will be flooded.”
