The good news for the economy continues to come in. We have leading indicators that are going up. Corporate profits are on the rise. GDP is growing at a faster pace. Housing activity is strong and industrial activity is starting to recover.
The economy is gearing up for a better 2017 and we hope you are also. Assuming you are positively correlated to the general economy, you will be busier in 2017 than you were in 2016. What will be needed: more working capital, more people or their equivalent, and likely more equipment. This is the time to be aggressive because the positive economic environment tends to be forgiving if missteps occur.
Make it happen now before the potential damage from rising interest rates begins to set in sometime in late 2018 or early 2019. It’s clearly “go time” now. Execute your plans for improving margins and building a strong brand.
