There’s lots of buzz about “shovel-ready” projects out there – billions and billions of dollars going into the economy and infrastructure. No doubt, we’re all going to have a fabulous year, what with all of this new work! So, here’s the question: Are you buying it? Do you know where your extra piece from all of this is coming from?
Deep down, where do you think most of your help will come from over the next couple of years? I’m going to suggest that your help will come from the same place it always has: your hands! Your help is in your own hands. Your success will be local, and will come from your own efforts.
Sure, we’ll read in the newspaper about a couple of contractors who get a wheelbarrow full of money delivered right to their jobsites, but just a couple. They’ll make the news. For the rest of us, it’ll be business as usual, just a bit harder.
We’ve been talking since the beginning of the year about goals and visions for 2009. So it’s fair for me to ask you how you’re doing. Are you where you thought you would be? You know, if you need to do a mid-course correction, April’s a pretty good month to start moving!
What’s the chance you’ll actually add profitable sales revenue to your company this year? With all the extra competition out there, maybe your chances for an increase are not too good. So let’s implement that plan we’ve been talking about all of these months, which is to maximize your job profits.
Let’s resolve to stop doing business as usual. Heck, let’s resolve to keep our businesses! That help you need is in your own hands. Make 2009 worth remembering, and not your memorial.
