Where did you find your first employee?

Have you promoted an intern to employee status, and if so how many times have you done it?

It's often said that Metro Detroit and Michigan need to reinvent their economies to be competitive. Are we making those changes, and if so are we making enough of them or doing it fast enough?
I think it is happening in Ann Arbor. There is a lot of innovation going on in Washtenaw County. I see it much less so in other parts of Michigan - there are great innovative companies growing throughout the state, but the rest of the state needs to move faster in making the transition happen.

What advice would you give to someone who was thinking about opening a business here?
Make sure every hire is a star, if at all possible. This is critical is a small business. Budget for the worst case scenario.
