Waiting for the light at the end of the tunnel

Last week was a crazy week of traveling and I am glad to be back in the office for a few days.   My trip took me to all corners of my territory meeting both with established distributors and prospective customers.

The news is the same everywhere, bidding is picking up, plans to projects on hold are being dusted off but actual billings and receivables are still slow. Everyone is making the most of what business they have and are thankful for it.

While everyone is waiting for the light at the end of the tunnel, I thought I would share some quotes to offer encouragement or maybe just make you laugh.

“Ask five economists and you’ll get five different answers – six if one went to Harvard.” Edgar R. Fiedler

“Business is never so healthy as when, like a chicken, it must do a certain amount of scratching around for what it gets.” Henry Ford

“A budget tells us what we can’t afford, but it doesn’t keep us from buying it.” William Feather

“And while the law of competition may be sometimes hard for the individual, it is best for the race, because it ensures the survival of the fittest in every department.” Andrew Carnegie

“Carpe per diem – seize the check.” Robin Williams

“If all the economists were laid end to end, they’d never reach a conclusion.” George Bernard Shaw
