How many of you small business owners in New York's City grew up here? Or did you move to New York chasing a dream? I've been wondering what motivates people to set up shop here, in one of the most challenging cities in the world.
My eldest daughter is going off to college this Fall - in California - but vows to return after graduating. Born in NYC, it's the only home she has ever know, much different from my own childhood which involved moving every 4-5 years or so.
