Tapping the Well of Opportunity – Start Now

The stock market rallied yesterday on a combination of good indicators. One of which is the increase in Consumer Confidence. After a 6 month decline it is up to 51.9 from 51.0 last month. What is interesting is that this is still as low as it was in 1992. A coworker of mine Chuck Lomax mentioned to me on Monday that he witnessed an increase in people at the beach this past weekend. It is worth noting and speculating that perhaps the consumer is ready, ready to go to the beach, ready to eat steak, ready to buy a car. But more importantly, maybe it is the recognition of hitting bottom and the optimism of only being able to go up that is spurring this new excitement. I also think the patriotism of the Olympics is creeping into many people and we are reminded of makes America so different. Between now and the middle of 2009 there is a lot of opportunity for small businesses and investors to get in cheap, weather the slow, and be primed for a take off.

About benleeson
My name is Ben Leeson. I currently work for a large financial company in IT. I went to school at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. I graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration concentrating in HR. Professor William Brown taught me and I enjoyed his classes; even acquiring an appreciation for just about all things HR. I didn’t pursue a job in that field after college but I’ve kept up with it. This blog will further my fascination with all things HR. I hope to grow my knowledge of the area through thoughtful writings and spirited feedback. I will attempt to have a fairly routine style so anyone reading can come to expect certain segments. Please excuse my incorrect grammar and occasional misspelling.
