It has been said that a recession is when your friend loses their job, a depression is when you lose yours. Last week I outlined 5 trends that will disrupt every business in the next five years. The first trend we will examine is the one that has the potential to create a depression in your world.
The disruption is coming. It won’t be just a minor change but a radical change that radically alters the way we see the world. That disruption will cause many tremendous pain. The question we must ask is, “Will you be on the cutting edge or the bleeding edge of that disruption?”

Answering these questions at this time and being completely honest will help you stay on the best track to achieve your disruptive success.
