The economy will turn around and when it does will you be ready? John Baldoni, writing for the Harvard Business Review says:

Market economies are cyclical. And just as companies regularly plan for the next downturn, that is, be watchful of spending and debt load, the same applies to the upside of the cycle. If you wait too long, you will miss out on the upswing, putting your company at a disadvantage when the indicators swing northward.

So how do you get ready for the return swing of the pendulum? Use the slow times to plan, clean up operations, and invest in training. What will you learn in the next month which will increase your sales for the next six?

If you are here in Indy, consider a Rainmaker University class.   Sales training, PR, Blogging, marketing and more, these 90 minutes programs can change your business, or you life.  But nothing will happen if you don’t invest the time.
