The greatest risk is not that we aim too high and miss; it's that we aim too low and hit.
Seymour, CT (Vocus) August 8, 2009
With all of the economic uncertainty and personal turmoil affecting many Americans today, it's easy to get tied up in negativity and forget about the positive aspects of life. Larry Janesky, founder and president of Basement Systems, Inc. and 2009 Greater New Haven Businessperson of the Year, believes that positivity makes all the difference, and he wants to share his positive outlook with everyone through his new free "Think Daily" blog.
Designed as a way to inspire and motivate business owners, prospective business owners, employers, employees, and everyone in between, "Think Daily" provides free subscribers with a daily email of advice for professional and personal life. The daily thought covers topics such as economics, work ethic, overcoming adversity, and achieving success.
Throughout his career, Janesky has continued to keep a positive outlook and stay motivated. He is now the president and founder of a growing international basement waterproofing company that has been in business for over 20 years, so he can speak with experience on the beliefs that have made him, and his companies, successful. As Janesky writes in his blog, "The greatest risk is not that we aim too high and miss; it's that we aim too low and hit."
Janesky has a string of awards and honors behind him lending credence to his advice. In addition to Business New Haven naming him the 2009 Greater New Haven Businessperson of the Year, he was also honored in the Junior Achievement Free Enterprise Hall of Fame and named the Greater Valley Chamber of Commerce's Innovator of the Year. He was impressively published this April in Inc. Magazine, as Tom Peters named him one of the five most interesting entrepreneurs of the past 30 years. His company, Basement Systems, has also received many awards including Better Business Bureau honors, Valley United Way Corporate Citizen of the Year, Top 100 Privately Held Businesses in CT, Tech Top 40, and 30 innovation prizes from the Connecticut Quality Improvement Award Partnership just to name a few.
