Power Point: Seize this moment

“This is a time for smart people. This is a time for entrepreneurial people. This is a great time for people like me.”

–Donald Trump on Larry King Live Wednesday night. With his trademark bravado, Trump told Larry the moment is ripe for investing in real estate. “You go see your bank — maybe you can make a deal, maybe you can’t. But you can make a deal with a bank on another house, and much better than the one you’re living in.”

For more evidence supporting the Donald’s claim that this is a time of opportunity, see my post today, which mentions two new businesses helping people find flexible part-time work. Also, “Get Rich Slow,” a story in the current issue of Time that says there’s never been a better time to start your own Internet business. –Jessica Shambora
