Small business owners across the country are more optimistic now than they were even just in November, according to a survey by the parent company of the Philadelphia Business Journal.
That optimism also comes with a great deal of insecurity about expansion, showing small businesses are battening down for a continued, battering economic climate.
But with that little extra love this Valentine’s Day, maybe it’s time to take your start-up ideas in Philadelphia and put them to good use. It’s always time of peril that bring on innovation.
The details of the survey:
Small business bosses are more optimistic than they were just after the election. In November, only 37 percent expected their business prospects to get a lot or a little better. In January, 63 percent expected conditions to get a lot or a little better. [Source]
