Key questions we need answers for to find the upsides of any downturn is my second newsletter article for this month.
If you are a subscriber to my fortnightly changing what’s normal newsletter then please ignore this post.

Your answers to the questions that are applicable, and how you act on your answers, may well determine your future, and that of your children, and their children.

Learn from the corporate and political leaders (so-called) who are living in the dark ages and be a shining light for others. I trust answering my 95 questions will help you. Here is the link again.
If not you, then who?
