You can weather this storm - Company leaders must project a positive attitude

Years ago (circa 1991), an acquaintance of mine who was a Wisconsin-based Chicago business owner and won a significant battle against cancer decided to fulfill a dream of a lifetime. He wanted to build a sailboat, and with his wife and friends along the way, sail the world.

He did it when our country was coming out of a recession and his company had just gone public. He decided to go ahead with the worldwide trip because, “my employees were behind it and we were on top of our game.”
