Entrepreneurial spirit is still thriving!

Last night was the first night of a new 10 week session of FastTrac New Venture at the Kauffman Foundation. There are over 60 entrepreneurs partipating in the course to research and develop their business plans! I'm so excited and proud to be one of the Coaches helping them with this process.

With all the doom and gloom of the economic situation, it was great to hear their enthusiasm and excitement about starting their businesses! They talked about opportunities--cheap rent for great locations, used equipment and qualified employees available and more. They were also cautious about the economy, but they weren't letting it deter them from their entrepreneurial dreams.

Small business and entrepreneurs have always had an impact on our economy and creating new jobs. Realizing that the economy isn't detering people from starting their own business was reassuring and comforting!
