When Business is Slow, Some of Us Do Our Most Interesting Work – What I learned about the winter of 1933 and the Great Depression yesterday

I wrote a brief blog entry for the Stamford Historical Society yesterday. As I mentioned in an earlier post on this blog, I think we are going to see the economy start to improve soon. However, during these past couple of months, when I’ve called on clients, I’ve found myself speaking to two kinds of market researchers. One kind that seem to want to curl up on the side lines and wait till things get better. Another kind, much like my grandfather, who probably realize that when things get tough, it is an opportunity to work on some really interesting and important work. These are the type that are remembered and the type I want to work with. If you’re one of these latter types, please give me a ring. Together we can do something worth being remembered for.

To find out why I sometimes think of my grandfather because of how he chose to spend his time when business was slow during the Great Depression read the post at the Stamford Historical Society blog here.

If you’ve been laid off, this may be an even more interesting post for you.
