How to build or even sustain a small business in an economy that is shrinking around you is a daunting task for any entrepreneur - just ask those who managed to survive through our own economic meltdown of 2008. But to also understand that an economic fix is not around the corner, and any improvement will take years to come to fruition can be a sobering experience.
Yet hope springs eternal for entrepreneurs - tomorrow is always a better day. Today's guests are entrepreneurs in Puerto Rico and they are instrumental in bringing the free mentoring services offered by SCORE to their island's small business community.
The third guest on the program is South Florida SCORE District Director, Jerry Steinberg, who was instrumental in convincing the National SCORE organization that providing assistance to this economically challenged Territory will pay significant dividends back to that island's economy and residents.
