A recession is no excuse

External forces in business, like a recession, are a simple fact of reality. It’s not a matter of if, rather it’s only a matter of when.

Blaming poor performance on external factors is admitting you didn’t have a vision. That your business has always been out of your control.

Those that had a vision that didn’t cut it aren’t out to place blame. They’re looking for new opportunity.

Instead of placing blame, seek opportunity.
