I’m in Phoenix, and we were hit hard. I’ve been seeing signs of improvement since the first of the year.
While the facts of the economy are tough, I’ve always observed that perception is more important than the facts. If people feel hopeful, they act hopeful, and the economy grows. I’m not talking about being crazy. I’m talking about realizing tht you are in a tough spot and yet feeling optimistic about the future.
The facts of the present moment don’t have to control our emotions. You can be in a really tough financial spot, and either choose to be scared or choose to be hopeful.
