More second order effects of the recession
I keep looking for good news and keep not finding it. One of my clients noted her frustration the other day. She has been trying to make a sale to a really big company. She felt she was making good progress, even closing in on the actual commitment, then she calls the VP she has been working with for many months only to find out that the fellow had been let go. Now she has to a start largely from scratch with someone new who is unfamiliar to her and who is unfamiliar to the project. I don’t think there is anything an entrepreneur can do about this situation. This sort of thing is just one more source of sand in the gears for the economy. One harbinger of change (that things have stopped getting worse) might be when you go for a couple of weeks without learning of some new second order problem you hadn’t focused on.
