“How’s your business?” It’s a question I get a lot because many people think the PR, marketing and advertising world is an economic bellwether.
I hope they’re right because our business is robust! Why? I think it’s because we primarily work with small-to-middle market companies driven by entrepreneurial leaders motivated to deliver service, goods and products people want – regardless of what’s going on in Washington, D.C. or unstable global markets.
C. Pharr’s clients are doing whatever it takes to succeed – launching new websites, promoting their businesses, speaking at conferences, finding new customers through social media and grooming their leadership for the future.
We recognize we’re all blessed to be Texas-based with the best economic environment in America. And, there are other positive factors to account for 2013’s more evident optimism. No question the housing market has soared during Q-1 2013 and stock market advances boost everyone’s retirement hopes along with their attitudes.
Conversely, there are almost as many dampers on the economy, if business leaders are looking for discouragement. Considering the stalemate in Washington, prospects of higher taxes, more government regulations, confusing and expensive healthcare mandates alongside global uncertainty…anyone who’s faint of heart could despair.
But that’s not what we’re seeing firsthand, thank goodness. What we see are business leaders who’ve decided to take charge of their business’ destinies and customers. They’re tired of waiting for “things to settle down” and have decided that, come hell or high water, they’re moving ahead.
Our clients are constructing and renovating offices and apartments and readying land for development. They’re delivering healthcare, business and real estate consulting while financing business expansions all over America. They’re evolving new products, entering new markets and educating tomorrow’s leaders!
While expanding their businesses, C. Pharr’s clients are also contributing to their communities and ensuring their employees understand the obligation to pay forward the blessings of economic well-being.
In essence, they’re building the American Dream by doing their part to make sure free enterprise and entrepreneurship trump hand wringing and doomsayers. And we’re happy to be part of it!
