Opportunities Are Now Here

greenAs I get ready for an important board meeting today, I realize that now people tend to be more conservative. We realize that the economy has changed and that there’s less and less room for optimism. It’s better to be on the safe side and communicate the fears to the public and share holders or the downside of the business rather than the upside.

As a chairman, my role is to mentor the CEO, to lead the strategy and manage the board meetings and decision on short, medium and long term view of the business but in today’s world I find board members trying to help the firm survive these hard times instead of looking for opportunities to grow. We all know that “opportunities are nowhere” is written with the same letters but with different spaces as “opportunities are now here“, and I think that it is the time to show leadership and spread some optimism, so that good businesses will grow and that the economy today, like a burnt piece of timber, would act as the ground for future soil / businesses to grow faster.
