This interesting headline appeared in a recent issue of The Wall Street Journal.
 
.
At first glance, one might get the impression that this is the press talking their way into an economic recession. But it’s the exact opposite.  
.
As you read on, it turns out this is an advertisement by Fortune magazine. The statement “…the fact that business is in for a tough time will make business even more interesting…” was made in 1929 by Henry Luce, founding publisher of Fortune Magazine. 
.
And wasn’t he so right. The period after 1929 was very interesting and a lot of changes took place. Changes that most of us have benefited from. 
.
So, if we are to face some challenging economic times in the next year or so, there will almost certainly be business opportunities for those with their eyes open. 
.
.
Well that’s how I’m seeing it. It is a time for optimism and opportunity.
.
.What do you think?
