Crystal balls are never as crystal clear as we would like when peering into the fortunes of the stock market. I've worked in the market for more than 35 years and can tell you no one truly has the answer to this question. I'd be happy to talk to you about my views and give an overview of the current market valuation and factors that could create more volatility in the coming months.
What a great question to get on Clarity. Great to see entrepreneurs of all levels on the site. In my 10 years as a financial services consultant I have relied on my "network" of contacts and online resources such as Clarity and LinkedIn for my consulting clients. If "on-sight" is of major importance to you in your business, I would suggest going to an area where you feel your business would have an advantage by being close to where you live. In today's on-line world, many consulting jobs can be completed from anywhere. Just some food for thought. Good luck!
