Listeners Respond: Own a Business, Work a Second Job

The Takeaway
All week we've been hearing from listeners about their Great Recession stories.  Some of you have lost jobs, while others have taken pay cuts or moved out-of-state in search of employment. And  there are those of you who have created your own employment opportunities:  the small business owners of the bunch. But nothing comes easy when you start from a clean slate. Two Takeaway listeners join us who have ventured to create their own small businesses, while maintaining other part-time work in order to make ends meet. Brandy Mcnair  is a listener and small business owner from Norman, Oklahoma who also works as a waitress. Jeff Hardaway  is a listener and small business owner from Nashville, Tennessee who spends half his week working as an x-ray technician at a local hospital.
