As I write this, I almost feel our economy, and our industry, are in the eye of a hurricane. As you know, the early stages of a hurricane are usually followed by a calm period in the eye of the storm and then the inevitable slap of the backside of the storm.
Everyone knew in the fall and early days of the year our economy was headed for serious trouble. Now, as a new administration and many new brains try to figure out what to do, there appears to be a bit of calm while everyone waits to see what’s coming. Regardless of what happens, some people will believe in the plan and some won’t. The backside of our storm will simply be the time it takes for things to improve.
