Recession advice from Mountain View Entrepreneurs

Uploaded: Dec 8, 2008
My latest article was on Sam Wyly (http://www.mv-voice.com/story.php?story_id=4691), an entrepreneur who spoke in Mountain View about his persistence through recessions.

Sam Wyly's autobiography "1,000 Dollars and an Idea: Entrepreneur to Billionaire" (http://www.amazon.com/000-Dollars-Idea-Entrepreneur-Billionaire/dp/1557048037/) provides inspiration. Let's hear about your favorite business biographies, especially if they are from Mountain View locals.

Do you know of any serial entrepreneurs from Mountain View who are good role models for the local business community in a recession?

If you are a Mountain View entrepreneur share your "Lessons Learned In A Recession" by commenting here.
