How do you view these tough economic conditions? As a threat? As an opportunity? How you think about it matters. How you think about everything – matters.
Here’s a thought to consider: the kind of economy we are living in weeds out the weak players – is that going to be you…or your competition? Are you strong in the Lord and the power of His might? Or trying it on your own? Here are some tips that may help you not only survive but also thrive in any economy.
