New Rules of the Game – David v. Goliath
When underdogs, David’s choose not to play by Goliath’s rules to win! In today’s economy you need to learn to fight like a David, but the problem is that most people are determined to fight on Goliath’s terms. They go to battle with a strategy that worked a decade or two ago and expect to win. The problem is there are new rules of the game. It does not matter if you are looking for a job, trying to stay employed, launching a business, or trying to stay in business you need to learn the new rules, so you can fight like a David.
