So, why are so many people who never cared about politics before suddenly almost fanatics? It must be the Obama Effect. I previously had only disgust and doubt about politics prior to Obama’s campaign and win. We can never underestimate the power of influence that inspiration has as a leader and in business development. People buy not only trust and confidence, but hope and possibility. A great lesson for us all to remember as we lead and sell. It’s amazing to witness the new hope and possibility in our country in place of the familiar old cynicism. Of course, there’s still the economic fears, but even with those there’s a palpable new sense of hope. Anyway, for those of you who haven’t yet discovered it, there’s a great new website of the Office of the President Elect, which I recommend checking out.
