Telecom Is HOT Despite Downturn

By Troy McCracken, Founder and CEO, Spectrum Inc.

I know the economy is bad and I know that sales are down and everyone you talk to is negative about this year and concerned about next year.

However, I recently had the pleasure of exhibiting at the PHONE+ Channel Partners Conference & Expo in Miami and I saw a ton of business being done!

For those of you who didn’t attend, you missed a great event. Spectrum had a great show! We have already signed up six new partners from the show and have a pipeline full of others.

I have spoken with several other exhibitors – TBI, Entelegent, One Communications just to name a few – and they also had great shows.

I think it is all a matter of attitude. If you think you will have a bad year, you will. If you think you will have a great year, you will. It is all in how you approach it.
