Seth Godin had an interesting post on his blog this morning. He was commenting on the turbulent financial times in which we live and the impact on entrepreneurs. Many might think that now would not be a good time to start a business, but Godin disagrees. He said that if he didn't already own a business he would be looking to start one now. I know many Lightning Labels customers and readers of this blog are entrepreneurs with very small part time businesses wondering when would be a good time to quit your day job and launch full time into your business. As Godin says there will always be an excuse not to start. He points out that many of the businesses in this year's Inc. 500 were started soon after 9/11 (Lightning Labels is one such business), where times were even more turbulent than today. We are hearing a lot of bad news these days. But this too will pass and one day a few years from now we will be reading about bold entrepreneurs who launched successful businesses in the wake of the financial disaster of '08. We look forward to printing labels for these companies.
