Any bright ideas? Brainstorming small business ideas

Friday, March 13, 2009

Laid-off workers across the country are building business plans instead of sending out resumes. Economists say that when the economy takes a dive, it's common for people to turn to their inner entrepreneur to start their own businesses.

Alex Andon in San Francisco and Lucy Aponte in the Bronx join The Takeaway to talk about their bright ideas. Also weighing in on the conversation is Stephen Key, co-founder of InventRight , a company dedicated to educating investors about how to pursue their ideas. He offers advice to these budding entrepreneurs.

"Now is the perfect time for inventors, or anybody with an idea, to get those ideas out."
— Stephen Key of InventRight on the importance of innovation

Remember when you own your own business you are the last one to be laid off.
