Entrepreneurial Pockets of Inspiration in Economic Uncertainty

As we have just come up for air from the super-sales-driven Thanksgiving weekend, it’s very easy to see the desperate wishes of companies that this holiday season will help to turn around their financial trajectory. They cling to the hope that although companies keep shedding jobs, people will ignore that and keep plunking down cash and credit, which will keep the big behemoths afloat.

This current period of economic uncertainty underlies the fact that “necessity is the mother of invention.” In recent history, there has been no other time – or opportunity – that has presented a greater necessity for innovation and inspiration than right now. That’s why it’s great to see entrepreneurs who take this to heart and are able to thrive while others are just struggling to survive.
Entrepreneur.com has an article, “The Entrepreneur Economy“, which highlights how smaller entrepreneurial companies have been able to successfully respond to the morphing economy with new ideas and innovation, while their much larger counterparts are struggling. Here’s an excerpt:

“We don’t have to do things the same way. We can take the economy in hand and drive our own destinies. And a movement that has been slowly building in the business world is finally taking hold: We’re seeing the beginnings of the entrepreneurial economy, a system built on nimble, low-overhead, oftentimes small companies with fluid workforces, rather than the massive conglomerates that have upheld the economy for decades.”

As our economy tugs and pulls to get back on solid footing, it will cause significant changes in what we call the “workforce”. Whether by choice or circumstance, people will have to become more entrepreneurial. You don’t have to become a victim of change. You can lead change – entrepreneurially.
