Renowned economist Ray Perryman visited with small business owners Tuesday about how to succeed in the current economy.
The half-day seminar, located at the TTU Merket Alumni Center, provided business owners tips and access to valuable information about workforce development.
"Well, I think everyone is right now invested in the training in the workforce, an adequate workforce, supporting the local education institutions that train the workforce, that's all extremely important," Perryman said. "Be an advocate for furutre infrastructure needs in the area and funding opportunities coming up. Elections are coming up to vote for water resources. All sorts of things like that people can get involved in."
Perryman said another vital tool for small businesses is to know safety and health regulations in their particular field.
