Thank heavens for young entrepreneurs

One of the best things about working at a business newspaper is the opportunity to talk with entrepreneurs about their ventures. But it’s especially rewarding — as well as refreshing and reassuring — to meet with young entrepreneurs.

Congratulations are in order for the students who graduated from the latest class of the Young Entrepreneurs Academy in Grand Junction. By learning how to turn good ideas and hard work into businesses, you’re all winners worthy of admiration.

One of the few things that can help to counter the cynicism associated with the sad state of political leadership in our country is the prospect of bright and energetic business leaders eager to solve old problems in new ways.

Thank heavens for young entrepreneurs.
