Are We Going into a Recession?

Friday, October 24th, 2008

Or just finding normal?

I wonder if we haven’t been screaming along so fast in the past several years that what we have come to enjoy as “normal” is actually 2x the speed of normal.  All of the talk of recession, sliding markets and a lower dollar has investors worried – with good cause.  It is very clear that something is wrong in the World.

I do believe that Calgary has been moving at great speeds that are not necessarily normal. A slow down may be necessary to find normal again. Having said that, like any business owner, I am concerned that the slow down will impact my business.

Has all of this impacted your business? Are sales down? What plans are you making to protect your business in a down economy?

PS – speaking of speed…

If one more pick up truck risks my life on Deerfoot I am going to ‘blow a gasket’… how about slowing down and using a turn signal. I think the driving in Calgary is getting a bit out of hand.

My shortest blog entry ever… but it had to be said.
