Trust in People Versus Control from Government

A friend mentioned in conversation yesterday that his new employment situation is not working out quite as expected. He had left a secure job and moved to a small business, but the new venture was not proceeding as planned.

As a way to change the course of the business, my friend has proposed a few ideas and options to the business owner. He is waiting to see what will happen. With more than 10 percent unemployment in the nation, you might assume he would be nervous and stressed. I certainly would be. For background, he has great business experience and is a hard worker and a connector of people, but so are many other people who are out of work.

As we parted ways, I threw out the closing remark, “I hope it works out for you.”
