Personally I am so sick of all this recession talk. It's everywhere. Now I am reading 50 job applicants for each job opening in the United Kingdom. That number by itself doesn't say anything. I don't get it why mass media always distorts reality and makes it appear more negative than it is. People should stop buying into this “negativity reporting”.
Need some positive news?
It has been historically proved that a recession is actually a good time to start off a new business. I know that self-employment or being an employer is not for everyone,... That's true. But if you have it in your veins t work for yourself than you'll appreciate the following interview with Seth Godin.
Even if you are working as employee you can get some take aways from this interview and help change the organization you are involved with for the better. Many businesses are on the wrong track without even knowing it.
You do not want to miss this interview.
See what's inside.
It's a collection of questions and answers about the concept of tribes, the history of tribes, tribes in business, tribes in every day life,…
If we have left something out. Let us know. Leave a comment here on the blog.
Yes, I can say “we”. I am one of the many contributors.
Maybe the Polish former president Lech Wałęsa will call me up and say, “Dziękuję” (Polish, English: Thank you), because I am responsible for getting his name into the e-book. Lech Wałęsa was an ordinary electrician before he became the tribe leader of Solidarność (Solidarity), the first independent union in formerly communistic Poland.
Tribes work in politics and they work in business and other areas. It's based on human nature.
Do you want to know how?
Then download the Tribes - Q&A E-book. It's free. Seth wrote,

Then drop me a note or a comment here on the blog and I will try to get you an answer. I have the power of Triiibes backing me up.
Personally I am most interested in application of the tribes concept for marketing and business.
If your question fits these categories, there's a better chance I'll do find answers for you. However, no promises here. (If you want to give me a bribe for increasing your chances, go ahead. There is a “Buy me a coffee“ link below this post. But I warn you! I need at least 3 cups of coffee a day. …get the hint?)
