The Next Five Years for You and Your Business: Threats, Challenges and Opportunities
"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” Marcel Proust
The economy has slowly been on the rise for the last 8 years, yet cannot continue to grow forever. Baby boomers will soon transition out of the workforce requiring their spending habits to change. While a group of millennials will be ready to settle down, start families and buy homes fueling demands not yet experienced in recent times. In addition, technology, both a disrupter and accelerator of change, will continue to transform consumer buying habits. Then add to that the globalization of the economy and balancing of economic power which will create demands for products and services not yet invented.
You can never plan for the future by the past. Edmund Burke
How relevant is your product, service and business model?
What is your frame of reference for making business decisions - the past and present experience or the knowledge of the future?
Historic data may not help in the planning of the future nor can the future be accurately predicted within the current pace of change, but you can plan for the next five years from where you are today, hence this theme of: The Next Five Years for You and Your Business: Threats, Challenges and Opportunities.
