Bull!

Have you ever had a dream that you were alone in the ring with a bull?  You flourish your cape.  The crowd cheers.  Fifty feet away, the bull leans toward you, absolutely intense.  Are you ready?

If you’re selling or marketing your company, you’d better be.


The bull is boom times, and Robroy has news for you.  This is no dream.  In Maryland, the bull strode cooly into the ring earlier this year, when the Baltimore Business Journal acknowledged “the end of the recession.”

The bull paused, straining his powerful neck and pawing the dirt as the Baltimore Sun reported more data on economic recovery: http://ow.ly/1DaVo.

What does the data say?

Businesses posted thousands of new jobs in sales (up 23%), marketing (up 8%) and customer service (up 26%) on CareerBuilder.com, the Sun’s online job board, recently.  The article says more companies are restocking their revenue producing roles.

How is this good for you?

Whether you have a company or a revenue producing role, you have a new purpose.  Get out there and warn your prospects and customers that companies are going agressively into growth mode.  Not only is it safe for them to invest in growth again — it’s dangerous not to.

Ole!

Maryland gets first crack at the bull.  What we do, win or lose, will create momentum for other states.  So let’s be true matadors and engage fearlessly.  Our time has come.
