The Entrepreneur’s Opportunity Of A Lifetime


Last Wednesday, I hinted at the tremendous opportunity this current down economy presents to all entrepreneurs (and would-be entrepreneurs) to lift themselves up from struggling to successful.

I even cited a Deloitte report which pointed out the fact that over half of the Dow Jones companies were started during a recession.

The result?

Not exactly the “thanks for urging me to stop feeling sorry for myself and start taking the right steps necessary to completely transform my business and my life” response I was looking for.

Instead, I received a considerable amount of feedback – both on this blog and elsewhere – from people who were, shall we say, not very enthusiastic about their prospects for short- or long-term success.

Which is truly sad – for our current crop of bummed-out businesspeople, for the customers/clients/patients they could be serving and for our economy as a whole (which is fueled by small business more than anything else).

So this week I will boldly declare:

There is no question that this current difficult economy is the single greatest time of opportunity that any of us are likely to see in our lifetimes.

And I will cite another Deloitte report to back up my claim.

Then I will outline the simple steps to spectacular success for any businessperson, in any economy – and especially during a down economy.

So let’s get started…

A Deloitte Center for Financial Services sponsored study published nearly a year ago concluded that the number of millionaires in the United States will practically double – that’s right, DOUBLE – by the end of this decade:

The number of millionaire households in the U.S. is projected to increase from an estimated 10.5 million in 2011 to 20.6 million in 2020.

Yes, it is a historical fact that every recession creates a burst of new millionaires. And the length and depth of this recession will unleash a flood of new millionaires never before seen in history.

So the question is…

Will YOU do what it takes to become one of these additional 10 million American millionaires who will emerge over the next few years?

Which means that these are NOT the questions you should be asking:

  • When is this economy going to get easier already?
  • What am I going to do to survive?
  • When will the government help me build my business?
  • Why don’t people just automatically do business with me just because I exist, like they did a few years ago?
  • When will “my industry in general” rebound?
  • And other such mealy-mouthed, wimpy “woe is me” questions…

After all, have conditions ever been better for business success?

  • Lowest interest rates in 50 years
  • Highest number of highly-qualified, ready-to-perform workers ever available in the marketplace
  • Internet and technology making marketing cheaper, easier and more accessible than ever
  • Overwhelming number of business owners hiding their heads in the sand and doing nothing

My most influential business mentor, the world’s #1 small business marketing expert Dan Kennedy, has personally taught me his “3 Core Concepts” that govern all small business fortune-making. I strongly suggest you start applying them to your business:

  1. Since the majority is always wrong about money, do the OPPOSITE of whatever the majority does.
  2. Find breakthroughs OUTSIDE the “normal” way business is done in your industry.
  3. Focus on and master the key to all business wealth: the ATTRACTION of customers/clients/patients – instead of the ugly and counter-productive pursuit of them.

For help on putting these “3 Core Concepts” to use in your business, study this for-a-limited-time-only free video training series given by Dan Kennedy himself.

Then post a comment below to let me know ONE change you will make in your business as a result, that will get you out of crowd of doom-and-gloomers and into the record-setting wave of millionaires about to be created thanks to this Great Recession.
