They did it and did it big, so can you

21 Nov

I’m already tired of reading about the doom and gloom in the marketplace. How fear is the new driving factor in this recession. So it was very refreshing to read an article about 14 companies that were started during a recession and made it BIG.

You’ll recognize the names, like Hyatt, BurgerKing, FedEx and even Microsoft. Better yet, the article lists Google, PayPal and salesforce.com as recent success stories that thrived during the dot com bubble burst.

So if you’re looking for the silver lining or even a nudge to start your own company during these trying times, then read this article and be motivated!

    Michael, thank you so much for a positive post! I am sick to death of all the “selling in a recession” articles. Be the best you can and have a great attitude and the customers will come to you. Maybe sooner..maybe later…but they will come. Thanks again!
