Should we all start a business in a small town? Hell no! I’m from a small town in Central Florida and if one more person starts a business here, I’m going to walk right in and smack them!! Especially retail and small bar/restaurants. I’ve seen many come and go too fast. I am also a former business owner and unless you want to be broke and busted for years while you are trying to win the hearts of a small town, I’d advise you not to waste ten to fifteen years of your life. Not to mention the best earning years of your life. Just saying. Enjoyed the article Nicole.
