Your advice wanted - starting a business in a recession
My friend Margie, who's at business school, is less optimistic than me about the recession. She thinks things will be dismal for a long time yet.
However, she's still considering starting a business when her course is finished. So what kind of company would you recommend starting up in a recession?
And if I'm right after all and the recovery starts soon, what sort of companies would be especially successful in a recovering economy?
Please suggest your answers in the comments, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll post a selection. The best recommendation wins a free skinny latte (other coffees are available).
