Might Be Time to Move to This Small Business City

Your inbox is filling up, your A/C costs are skyrocketing, the best characters on Game of Thrones keep dying: even though the summer is finally here, life’s not all sunshine and clear skies.

For bootstrapping entrepreneurs, the struggle can be *very real.*

And while it’s easy to let setbacks and obstacles knock you down, here’s some encouraging news: According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, business launches have, over the past few years, outpaced business closures.

Small victories, people!

Of course, certain cities see a higher volume of said launches than others. Newly released data from Small Business Trends reveals which metropolises came out on top (based on a 2013 Business Patterns survey — the most recent year the information was collected by the U.S. Census), and the industries that are flourishing in each.
