A Comment on the Economy<br /> When times are bad for the economy, it can be a great time to start a business. In fact, 16 of the 30 companies that make up the Dow industrial average were started during a recession or depression. These include Procter & Gamble, Disney, Alcoa, McDonald's, General Electric and Johnson & Johnson<br />These economic times are an opportunity. Companies that make it will end up with a larger market share than when they started. <br />How does one take advantage of the opportunity? By being known—how does one get known? Marketing and promotion<br />Without promotion something terrible happens..NOTHING!<br /> PT Barnum<br />
