John Barthlamew (JB) was known to have a dark veil moving in sync with his cranial matter. Unfortunately the economy endured a steady stream of negativity, threatening to dismantle numerous others entrepreneurial spirits. As managers of businesses this can result in deflating your own motivations and damage your own ability, at least, that is what you may believe. Under such lack of light, it would be very easy to join JB in the blackness.
I’m a believer that sometimes in that very darkness, stashed away deep within the cave, through the pain of finding yourself where you are, can reveal the ultimate and unexpected answer. Embrace the pain.
