No doubt about it, the world is holding its collective breath. It is interesting to note that, whether or not the United States has been popular with other countries, it has become very apparent that it must be financially stable in order for the rest of the world to be, as well. But this article is certainly not a political statement of any kind. Rather, it is more of a cheer that I would like to send out to all reading so perhaps in our tiny way, we can help just a little. I have always had theories about what drives people to act and feel, and one of the things I believe is the most harmful thing a person can do is watch too much of the news.

Too much news?

Now I am not saying pull the blanket over your head and try to shut out the world, but, for the past few months, every time the television is turned on, data is being force-fed regarding how bad things are, how the economy is horrible, how much money is needed—interrupted only by last night’s local news of murder and mayhem. Right now the unemployment rate is 6%, which is up from 4%. This still leaves 94% employed. Must the things that breed fear be focused on? This is why I dislike the media so much and feel it can be amazingly irresponsible. It fosters a continual perpetuation of fear and bad news, and never focuses on what is good.

When middle-class America stops going out to dinner, stops normal shopping and stops going on vacation, the fallout is tremendous. They are the financial backbone of money being circulated throughout small and large businesses. What can we do? I know many of you reading this have seen a decrease in your business. Question: How often do you talk about the state of the economy? What are you doing to keep your business strong? Are your retail sales organized in a way so that if your services see a decrease, you still have strong sales? I know some businesses that are as strong as ever, have a growth in sales and are solid. What is their magic pill?

Attitude and hard work
