It's Time to Rebuild
One brick at a time, we can still pursue our dreams.
Like all of you, I remember exactly where I was the morning of September 11 when news first struck of the terrorist attacks. I was still at home, getting ready to head out for what should have been a typical day of work. The day, as we now know, was anything but typical. The shock had still not settled in even as I proceeded on to work and listened to the developing events. And gathered around a small TV here at work, we all watched the horror of terrorism unfold before our eyes, knowing our lives had changed forever.
Now, as I attempt to think about entrepreneurship, I still am unable to find any words that might speed the healing process. Let's face it, all of us are glued to the news 24/7, wondering if/when the United States will retaliate, whether there could be more attacks, whether we can ever feel safe again. At a time like this, is there any room for thoughts about starting and growing a business?
