Is now the right time to start a new business?

Posted by Vijay on June 18, 2009


Start a business during a recession?

I must be out of my mind.

Well maybe..but heres my logic.

If you have a good business plan and can afford to take the plunge, now is a great time to start. The recession is not going to last forever (these things are cyclical).

So if you do start your new business now and build it well, by the time the recession ends you will be ready for take off.

Look at the flip side of starting a business in “good times”. By the time you are ready for “take off”, the market will have tanked again.

Make sense??

What the hell happened?

I ran into an old friend Ramesh today. He was an avid reader of my other blog at Bangalore Blues. However something he said got me thinking.
“Bangalore Blues is good timepass he said, but I really liked the one you were writing on your experiences as an entrepreneur” he said “You really should restart”.
So here it is..after two years of hibernation, I am going to be updating this blog fairly regularly. Sorry for the absence.
But I have more stories…
