– America Stands Up

RevolutionAgainstRecession.comThis is a new web campaign for businesses that would rather do something than wait around for the world to end. The basic premise is that of sharing ideas, creating innovative changes and working together to get through the tough times.

The site includes online tips and free guides, and it gives anybody the chance to network with people who believe in positive action. Note that this is not really an “official” business site, but rather it is a site that revolves around user-generated content and that aims to spread as much optimism around as it can. As they say online, “No negativity allowed”.

At the end of the day, mixing with like-minded people who refuse to take part in a recession and look to be more creative, more innovative and more successful can only help anybody to develop his or her own survival skills and grow through the downturn. A very nice initiative, and I definitely recommend you pay it a visit in order to find the silver lining that should not be ignored. In Their Own Words

“Call it Karma, call it whatever you like, but we believe that what goes around, comes around, you reap what you sow. So, it struck us that whilst all we hear is bad news about jobs, economy and business prospects, the circle becomes ever decreasing and we are all, quite literally, doomed. So that’s where this site comes from, we want to build a site that encourages people to contribute through comments, ideas and tips, to help businesses think differently and make changes that will help them survive and maybe thrive through the recession. We’ve kick-started the site off with some tips and guides plus stuff that we’ve stumbled across and been able to utilise, but we want you to comment and add to them. By signing up to this revolution you have the opportunity to work with like minded businesses who all are willing to try to do things differently.”
