Long Time No “See”

October 28, 2011

It’s been a long time since I posted here, but I’ve thought about it a number of times. Right now, the “Great Recession” is still raging, in peoples minds and lives, if not in the actual data. I recall the first’ “recession” I lived through post-college (1991) I was very worried and didn’t know what to expect.

I have lived through Jimmy Carter’s “stagflation recession” in the late 1970s, but I was “safely” isolated in college.

As this one came on us in late 2008, it seemed different, Equally scarey as the last one…maybe worse as I now had kids approaching college age.

I remember my grandmother, born in 1905, who told stories of the Great Depression and lived and saved in preparation for the next one until her dying day.

My question to you is this: How has this Recession changed YOU? Do you spend the same way? Do you invest the same way? How have you modified your thinking? Your career?
