The Good News is … there is a Recession!

I would like to share with you the words of Cathy Tinsley Oats, self made billionair and business owner:

An African proverb says, “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The next best time is now.”

“The same is true about starting your own business. It may sound crazy to some people that you would want to start a business during a recession, but in fact some of the most successful businesses today have launched during times of economic struggle. Among these are Dell, Microsoft, Hyatt, Burger King, Fed Ex and CNN. Those companies became successful by recognizing the tough time and filling the needs of the market as best they could – turning an economic disavdantage into their advantage.

Ralph and I became distributors in 1984 when Jimmy Carter was president, gas was being rationed and interest rates were 18%. We knew if we needed money, everyone did Рand with that mentality Рwe were successful.

Three years later, the economy continued to tumble with Black Monday in 1987. Did we care? Heck no, we saw a great opportunity. We were cocky as heck because we knew we had THE opportunity everyone was looking for – and turned the down turn into our great advantage. That year we earned a million dollars because the “recession” presented us with an opportunity to get some of our best business builders (people who would NOT have been interested if the economy was doing good).

In 1992, we saw an opportunity to help others accomplish in the 1990’s what we accomplished in the 1980’s – and we launched Wellness International Network. We did 1.7 million in the first 3 weeks and have never looked back.

Twenty years later, WIN continues to capitalize on the greatest global trends today: entrepreneurship and wellness.

It is said someone starts a business every 6 seconds in the United States – a result of a tough economy and rough job market that is driving people toward entrepreneurship.

That is your good news!

Understand your opportunity will never be greater than it is today – as some of the best business builders out there are looking for an opportunity.”
