CEO
Carlsen Resources, Inc.

CFTM: How do you innovate in this economic environment so you are well positioned when things improve?
ANN CARLSEN: History has shown us that there’s not a better time for coloring outside the lines. This is the time for creativity and innovation. People are forced out of comfort zones and into doing their best thinking. Take chances, harness ideas and invest in them.

CFTM: How do you maintain a positive attitude in the face of persistent bad economic news?
AC: 
Find ways to make a difference to the bottom-line. Don’t blindly accept that nothing can progress because of the economy. Act like a survivor who exudes confidence, has an eye on the future and the competition.

CFTM: How bad is it for job seekers?
AC: 
The old model is gone forever. Companies will be flatter, smaller, with fewer people doing more. Companies will stick to core competencies and outsource the rest.
