You can't be the kid standing at the top of the waterslide, overthinking it.
You have to go down the chute!

This isn't the first time I've used Tina Fey's quote. However, for those of you still procrastinating and not figuring out what you want to do for the holidays - it's right on point!
There are still too many of you sitting on the sidelines watching the parade go by instead of being in it! So, here are a few things to consider for 2022's holiday season:
The $100 billion pet industry is poised to nearly triple to $275 billion by 2030, creating potential tailwinds for pet-friendly stocks...The pandemic has upended the lives of humans, but for pets, it's been a bonanza: Their owners have been home all day, showering them with attention and treats...Morgan Stanley's housing strategists estimate that the growth trend of US pet ownership more than tripled during the pandemic.
In a previous life, the owner of the company I worked for was a ponderer. He'd spend so much time thinking through what to do that the company was often pondered right out of some great opportunities. There's no such thing as a "sure thing" these days. That means you have to take risks. But the great thing about imaging and business is that nothing has to be forever.
November first is next week - Take some risks, and stop pondering at the top of the waterslide. Stop overthinking what you're going to do next.
PS And yes, that's me at Kalihari Waterpark in Ohio many years ago with our granddaughter. At one point I pondered so long at the top that a little old man, easily 80 years old, stepped around me and said, "Excuse me kid, I'm headed down this thing!"
