Have you heard the quotes about so-called ‘experts’ who ‘fear the possibility of a double dip recession’? I find those possibility of fears laughable. I’m not implying that an extended or deepening recession isn’t bad news — for most of us it clearly is. What I am saying is I find laughable the phrase: ‘fear the possibility of a double dip recession’. Fear the possibility… hmmm. One begs to wonder if these experts possibly fear it because they are, by their own confession, experts? Will we amateurs have nothing to (possibly) fear? Is it an expert fear? For that matter, do they also fear the possibility of Avian flu? Or, how about fearing the possibility of clowns?
Why are they so negative? Do they fear prosperity?
Why don’t they say they look forward to the possibility of a sustained economic expansion? Isn’t that possible? If this feared possible double-dip recession is only a possibility, is it wrong for them to say that continued growth is also possible?!? The negativity of news drives me crazy!
But I prattle on.
Last week I began interviewing new candidates for specific roles here at TriAxis. I see light at the end of this economic tunnel. Despite the best efforts of our government to indebt us and act as a disincentive to job creation, the power and creativity of capitalism will win. That means more and more creative ways to store, manage and protect data will be required, developed and implemented. I need to make sure the staff at TriAxis is ready to meet this requirement. Hence, the interviewing.
Another aspect of this is to make sure I have the current (dare I cliché) ‘best of breed’ products available to our clients and prospects. One of the more interesting ones is from QuorumLabs, their continuity appliance they call OnQ. If you haven’t seen it yet, I recommend that you do. If I can assist in that review, let me know. At any rate, I have my eye on an individual that resides on the ‘Gold Coast’ (Fairfield County, Connecticut) that may be a product specialist focused on OnQ. This will be the first time I’ve designated a field person as, essentially, an extension of another organization. We’ve assigned inside staff to specific manufacturers, but never field staff.
We’ll see how it works, but I believe the timing is perfect to embark on this type of vendor/reseller investment. Regardless of who is in the White House or on Capitol Hill, America’s power and incentive to grow GDP cannot be held down for long! And TriAxis will continue to be at the tip of the spear.
