How to Leave a Comment on Handshake 2.0


  1. I’ve “heard” – don’t know if it’s true or not – that there’s an increase in small business startup during tougher economic times. While I’d argue how tough the economy might be in the RNR as opposed to the rest of the country, I wonder if there’s a correlation between economy and small business startup.

    Nevertheless, there’s a need to support the entrepreneurial vision. The success of one benefits us all.

  2. Thank you for your thoughts. You’re in good company.
