Open for Business on WBLQ

Local Business, Global Concepts

Too many people believe that they are not the kind of people who can start a business or make of go of it with their own skills. They may feel that they don't have the connections, education, money, or other resources to be successful. Others simply don't know what the next step might be.

Every week on Open For Business, we interview someone who has been successful in business or non-profit endeavors. We listen to the stories of how they got where they are, and some of the obstacles that they faced on the way to their success.
