If you haven’t already seen it, I highly recommend taking a look at Entrepreneur’s new series called “Small Business Comebacks.” The series discusses entrepreneurs who have to make tough decisions and how they have rebounded from the recession based on these decisions.
The most important thing to get from these stories is that all hope is not lost. Are times tough? Yes. Are there smart business people out there making money? Yes. Will a good business model still work in this economy? Yes. Is there really capital out there to grow or start my business? Yes. The key is to know where to find it and to have a solid business plan to get you there.
