For some reason I have been dumping my brain on the web tonight - turning into former self again. I apologize.
I don't like to talk much on this site because I have found most knowledge transient. I'll think I know something and then it turns out wrong. The game almost always changes before knowledge can make me wise. I guess wisdom could be admitting that change is the only constant. That way I can continue learning.
Oh yeah, I put together industry performance information over the weekend. Pretty much all the leaders are medical, wholesale, or major discount chains. This tells me we are nearing the end of the third phase and into the fourth phase (late) of economic expansion. Every situation is different, but the odds can help give us some certainty.
Best of luck.
