Industry Spotlight

Launching an entrepreneurial venture has become a common occurrence for people of all economic levels. Start-up businesses span many industries ranging from retail and real estate to technology and daycare, among others. Many start a business due to today’s wavering business climate, while others look to simply earn additional income. Some prefer franchising – buying into an existing business-model that provides marketing, administrative and product support, while others prefer to start their business from the ground-up. There are many risks to becoming an entrepreneur, however, if planned, budgeted and executed properly, the rewards will far outweigh the risks taken.
