Considered the back bone of the US economy, small business employs about half of US workers. With the economy still on a recovery path, the question should be asked:, how do small businesses survive? Earlier this month, First County Bank’s Senior VP Rick Zaremski joined co-owner and sommelier of Stamford’s Napa & Co. Mary Schaffer and SBA/SCORE mentor and instructor Jonathan Naiman as guests of WSHU’s “Fairfield County Focus” to discuss how small business owners are doing in lower Fairfield County. Zaremski offers advice on small business loans, Schaffer talks about running a restaurant and her latest venture, Bar Rosso, and Naiman chats about what makes a strong business plan! Listen here at http://www.wshu.org/news/fcfocus.php for a unique round table broadcast on small business and the vital role it plays in the economy of lower Fairfield County.
