LEADERSHIP MUST STEP UP!
Covid-19 is having a decimating effect on our nation. Everyone from young children to senior citizens has this as their major topic of conversation. We are seeing a divided country not only among our elected representatives but also among the general population. Everyone has a different solution as to what action should be taken, which businesses should be opened and how much more money they should throw at our citizens.
We are a nation looking for direction. Unfortunately, I do not think that our elected officials have our best interest as their goal. Not only has the COVID-19 pandemic not produced a leader accepted by everyone, but the politicians are positioning themselves for the upcoming November election. The result is a nation drifting without a rudder.
I honestly believe that this nation will rise “from these ashes”, but the rising will have to be from the bottom up. Small business has been the motor that has driven our nation’s growth ever since our independence and they must step up, once again, and provide the growth leadership that is desperately needed.
My reasoning is as follows: Small businesses can move fast. They can pivot on a dime and take the necessary action to fill a need. Big Businesses are the dinosaurs of our age. Their internal bureaucracy coupled with government regulations makes it difficult for them to act quickly.
What an opportunity! Small businesses can best show their capabilities in this type of an environment. There will be some phenomenal growth; small business owners that have their “ears to the ground” and are serving the needs of the people can reach unbelievable heights.
They must be driven by their own desire and initiative and keep their focus on the solution, not the negativity that surrounds them. They must do some out of the box thinking and not listen to others that say it can’t be done. Anything and everything is possible if you believe and work hard enough.
At BizQuack we are pushing you, our members, to become the leaders who will rise and take the required leadership roles. By supporting one another we can start a wave which will sweep the nation.
“Start by doing the necessary, then the possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”
St. Francis of Assisi
