Re: Why Should I hire people?
You might just invest it in gold. Not a bad plan. Then send everyone home. But is the tax cut check really enough to live on for the rest of your life or will you have to go to work as a greeter at Wal*Mart to make it?

We need to remember the Contrarian Theory. "Everyone is always wrong." When everyone agrees, they are wrong. Isn't that about where we are?
If you called me in and told me what you just wrote and asked my recommendation, it would be this: "You are beat down and turned inward in your thinking. Take a week off, get some fresh air and exercise. While you are gone assign your top staff the task of evaluating your competition, their status, their key customers, how they are doing, how is their morale. What changes are they making in their product line? Then, when you get back, refocus energy so that your team is geared up and ready to steal a step on your competition."
Is that a fair answer to your question?
"There is no gain in arguing with a poo flinging monkey. While his
gibbering and raucous cries of victory may seem obnoxious in your ears
as you walk away, he will soon be quietly sitting behind his bars again
and licking his own feces off his fingers as you carry on with your day."
