Believe it or not, people have accused me of being excessively optimistic. And to be honest, it blew me away. Criticism for having faith in the future? In a world of pessimism, any amount of positive thinking could be considered excessive.
Granted, there is a lot I could be pessimistic about. Employment growth continues to be challenged. Interest rates are pressured. Health care costs continue to increase significantly. And, to top all off, we’re all trying to make a living in an industry that’s considered a mature market. So, then, why my optimism?
