This evening I had the pleasure of giving a presentation at Women Venture to several women working to develop and start new businesses. I gave a presentation entitled Business and the Law which covered a variety of issues related to protecting the business owner's rights and managing their liability risks.
While it is easy to focus on the doom and gloom of the big picture economy, hearing the plans of these business women highlights the importance of not allowing the stories in the news to prevent businesses from moving forward. Opportunities do exist -people simply need to keep an eye out for the right situations. People wiling to take the risk at this point will be well situated when better economic times come along.
