I Chose Not To Participate

I keep hearing that the recession is so terrible; everyone is going to be out of work.

No one can make any money now. You can’t save any money and on and on.

I say hogwash! The fact of the matter is yes 8% of the population is out of work. But, do you know what that really means? 92% are still working.

That is just a mathematical Fact we have to live with. People are working, people are making money, and people have money to spend. Especially if they are buying something they want. People always complain they can’t afford this or that but if it is something they really want they suddenly have the money they need.

In 1981 the US had a recession that was a lot worse than now. We actually had almost 10% unemployment. I was working for a large company and got laid off; I decided back then that I was not going to participate in the recession. I went out and got another job, within a month. It wasn’t easy, it took work and perseverance.

I went on to establish a new Telephone Interconnect company. Grew it large enough, by myself, to merge with another company and we grew that company into one of the biggest Interconnect companies in St. Louis. I’m not saying that to brag, or claim I am the all wonderful, I just want to show what can be done if you apply yourself.

Here is a fact you can think about for awhile. The companies that kept up their advertising during the recession are the companies that came out of it in great shape. I just read some astonishing facts about companies that actually increased their profits 200% after the recession. What should that be telling you? Start advertising right now, keep advertising. That is what I am doing, I am advertising now more than I ever have.

Like I said I don’t plan to participate in the recession.

You don’t have to participate either, unless you want to. Decide right now that you are going to take charge of your life. You are not going to put yourself at the mercy of a boss that could wake up tomorrow and decide he doesn’t like you and fire you. Decide what you want to do and do it. It won’t be easy but it will be worth every ounce of effort you put into it. I just read that someone said. To be successful don’t get a job. Start a business, that is the only real way to insure you and your families future.

To Your success,

Vern Rudolph
