Seth Godin wrote a great post the other day. I liked this part.
A friend asked me the other day, "...given the sorry state of so much in the world, what's possible to look forward to?"
The state isn't sorry. It's wide open.
Interest rates are super low, violence is close to an all time low, industries are being remade and there's more leverage for the insurgent outsider than ever before in history.
This got me thinking. So many people are blaming their problems on the economy. Meanwhile thousands of very successful companies were formed during seriously bad economic times.
We could have kept watching cable news and kept worrying and deciding not to get that loan or invest in that machine or hire that young energetic guy. But we would have missed huge opportunities. Instead we've kept plowing forward. We've made immense positive changes and have completely reinvented what kind of company WAi is. Later I will post a series of articles outlining all of the changes WAi has gone through for 2011 and how they have impacted us. We see the chance of a lifetime.
