A Great Day to Dream

“Trust the still, small voice that says, ‘this might work and I’ll try it.'”
– Diane Mariechild

Dare to dream….it’s a really simple concept whose success relies solely on your own courage, persistence and willingness to follow your passion.

If you haven’t picked up a copy yet, you might want to check your local newsstand for the latest edition of The Hippo (or follow this link: http://www.hippopress.com/090820/HIPPO%20090820a.pdf) which features a story called “Open for Business – Six Stories of Following Your Dream in Uneasy Times.” The story follows six new businesses (Sunny’s Table in Concord, Ignite Bar & Grill in Manchester, Lisa’s Sweets in Milford, Network for Work in Nashua, Serenity Wellness and Health Center in Nashua and GreenSource Energy Solutions Solar Store in Concord – one of our Greenerpalooza vendors!) and their owners who have all made the incredible leap of faith required to start a new venture in challenging times.

hippo1Why is today the perfect day to dream and follow your entrepreneurial spirit? Well, first of all, why not? With most other business professionals choosing to stay in their jobs during times of uncertainty, the field is wide open for new business owners with fresh ideas.  Funding is scarce, so it will force you to develop a business model that will stand the test of time. Most importantly, solid business ideas and creativity are always welcome, no matter what the economic circumstance. Companies like Proctor & Gamble and Chevrolet not only grew, but thrived….in the Great Depression.

So congratulations to the six new businesses featured in The Hippo – we at the Division of Economic Development stand ready to assist you as you continue to make your dreams come true and offer our sincerest best wishes as you grow and thrive in the Granite State!

– Steve Boucher, Communications & Legislative Director
