Over the last few weeks, I have been really quite surprised at the amount of time being spent by quite decent business people (myself included, if I’m honest!) arguing the toss about whether or not leaving the EU will be terrible for the UK economy.
While I acknowledge that there are a lot of businesses out there that could be adversely affected by a downturn in the country’s economy, most of my clients are of a size where they really operate in a sort of economic micro-climate all of their own, that they create by their own actions.
Some people of a similar size to those in my client-base are spending a significant proportion of their working day arguing and worrying on Facebook – about something that may never even happen, and even if it does, may not create the terrible outcomes they fear.
I think it was Mark Twain who once remarked about the number of troubles in his life – only some of which had actually happened!
Maybe we would be better off spending all that time talking to customers and prospects about how we can help them and their businesses thrive in whatever new economy we end up creating?
