It seems like nearly every day there’s more bad news about the economy. Even worse, it’s hard to see any light at the end of the tunnel. Given that, it may seem like a terrible time to start a small business. So here’s something that may surprise you: it’s actually not. The truth is that many small businesses that launch during tough economic times not only flourish, but are stronger and leaner than they would have been otherwise.  On today’s show we will be given a few tips on how to take advantage of what an economic downturn has to offer.
