MAK­ING IT WORK

DRUM - - ED'S NOTE -

THE un­em­ploy­ment fig­ures re­leased re­cently are enough to make you feel de­pressed. So many peo­ple with­out work and it seems there’s no light at the end of the tun­nel. Yet for some of the peo­ple in our story on page 10 there was hope when they started their busi­nesses. They wouldn’t wish the dark days and dif­fi­cult times on any­one, but they’ve man­aged to pull through.

Life isn’t al­ways fair and things aren’t al­ways easy but for those who take a chance on start­ing a busi­ness, there are op­por­tu­ni­ties. Turn to page 38 for ad­vice on how to set goals as an en­tre­pre­neur if it’s some­thing you’re con­sid­er­ing.

We’d love to hear from you if you’re a suc­cess­ful en­tre­pre­neur. Email your story to ed­i­[email protected]
