Locals should pursue dreams [UPDATED]Published 9:34am Thursday, December 13, 2012 Updated 11:40am Thursday, December 13, 2012
It is our hope that the development of businesses such as Go-Float and Nots! would encourage others with big ideas to take a chance and pursue their entrepreneurial dreams.
Many of the most innovative products and businesses began from an average person taking a chance on an idea.
It is critical that anyone with a concept for an innovative product or service approach economic development officials at the city, a local bank and at least take the first steps in starting a business.
While they might not be the immediate job creators, new business ventures in Fergus Falls can have a huge impact on the community in the long term, and we all want to be a part of an innovative community.
Amazon.com was started by one person with a big idea, and today the company is the world’s largest online retailer.
With a vast sea of information and resources available through the Internet, it is more convenient than ever to hit the ground running with a new idea.
We would like to see more businesses like Nots! and Go-Float grow in Fergus Falls, and that can only happen if residents take action.
