Starting Fresh?

Steve at Emergent Research commented on my recent post citing his company’s research on 2009 Business Trends.

Thanks for the post and kind words about our trend list. Moves made by the Obama administration have not had much of an impact on this list in our opinion.

What may be happening that is a bit different – it is a bit early to tell from the data – is the number of people choosing to start small and personal businesses (freelancers) is greater than we anticipated.

I have seen other data that supports that new businesses are often started during recessions. People who are laid off from their jobs decide to “do it themselves.” Good for them! Can’t wait to see what the creativity and ingenuity of people will bring.
