  1. Hi Jeffery, surely it’s the coveted 24th spot?

    great article, I am heading into a similar situation, work-wise and economy-wise, it’s really nice to read something positive as opposed to more doom ‘n’ gloom.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family, and have a great 2009!

  2. surely it’s the coveted 24th spot?

    You are right. However, it was published on the UK afternoon and U.S. east coast evening of the 23rd, hence my mistake!

    Thanks for the kind words. Very best wishes to you over the holidays and in the new year and in your adventures in the new new economy. Head down, chin up, my friend! :)

  3. This has been a great read, Jeffrey. I’ve been going through my own “recession” for awhile now with little to no work coming in. It sure is difficult times for some in the industry, for sure.

    Hope you and you family had, and have a very happy and safe holiday season! Take care and hope to talk soon!

  4. The last couple of days I’ve been tossing up whether or not to go solo, and this article has some really great pointers. Thanks Jeffrey.

    Time to plow on!

    Happy ..belated.. New Year. :-)

  5. the economic recession made a lot of workers jobless. my best friend and me lost our jobs because of job cuts. i hope that our economy would recover soon

  6. I think we are also seeing some signs of recovery from the Economic Recession. Of course, we have no idea of how long it will take to completely recover, but some say it’s going to be longer than for the other recessions in decades. I also scanned an article yesterday that said business owners need a new set of tactics to do well during recovery.
