Here’s an insightful post this week about the opportunity cost of starting a company in today’s economic environment. The author asserts that the opportunity cost will never be more optimal, and that you would be crazy to go find a new job right now rather than start something yourself.
The article is a guest blog by Seth Godin for the “What Would Dad Say” blog run by G.L. Hoffman. What is rather ironic about the blog, that no one seems to have commented on in the 36 and counting comments, is that G.L Hoffman is the creator of LinkUp.com, a new website job board. So you invite a prominent author and marketing guru to post on your site, to hopefully to help draw in folks looking for jobs, and he tells them – don’t do that.
Two key takeaways:
- Go start a company
- Be wary of guest bloggers
