A lot of corporations have seen dramatic decreases in revenue and have cut back projects as well. In many cases, this is accompanied by layoffs, and so everyone is working far harder.
But in other organizations, and for a lot of freelancers, there's more time than work. In other words, slack time.
Assume for a moment you don't have money to develop and launch something new. So, what are you going to do with the slack?
What can you build over the next year that will take time now and pay off later?
1. Learn something. Become an expert.
2. Earn a following and reputation.
To these two things, I would add ... join Toastmasters !
Seth, as a speaker, you should know that 3 is the magic number ... and Toastmasters is where speakers practice their magic!

- Example - Richard Backstrap has just been promoted for the second time this year. He speaks up a lot - but he's no more competent than the rest of us (note: fictional example)
- Point - Speaking up can enhance your career.

Greta oto may sound like the name of a silent movie star from Eastern Europe
but is in fact the scientific name for one of the most exquisite - and little
known - species of butterfly on the planer. This butterfly's claim to fame
is that its wings, spanning up to six centimeters, are almost completely
transparent. That's right, you can see just about right through them.
