“Leading Economist Recommends Social Network Marketing”
January 21, 2010

From the CNN site above:  “The economy may stink now, but this could be the perfect time to start your own business. Our Josh Levs went to an economics conventions and had the opportunity to get advice from economists. One expert told Josh if you do it right, on your own, you will be a leader of the future economy.”

At the MLM-thewholetruth.com site, which alerted me to the CNN video, author Adrian Armstrong quoted Charlotte Phelps, an economist from Temple University, telling CNN’s Josh Levs that “now is the perfect time to start your own business.”

She “told Josh if you do it right, on your own, you will be a leader of the future economy.  Her research, based on economic history, shows that the entrepreneurs are at the vanguard of socio-economic change. They are the leaders of the economy.”  Adrian quoted her as saying that “it’s the network of friends, and social interactions, that will point you to opportunities in a niche, where you can create an idea which will pay off.”

Ms. Phelps said “that once you get an idea, that you talk to your friends, and everyone you know about it, and don’t keep it to yourself,” and “if you harness the technology, and talk to people about it, you can feel really good at the beginning of 2010… that it’s time to pursue that dream, and it might be the best thing you’ve ever done for yourself.”

I couldn’t help but note the surprise of the CNN reporter at the entrepreneurial enthusiasm of Ms. Phelps.
