You've got to hand it to the Northland - we know how to handle hard economic times.

When times get tough, the tough go into business for themselves.  Whether they come from situations of un- (or under-) employment or they just want to be self-sufficient and create something, entrepreneurs from two year old startups to those with decades under their belt are honored every year at the annual Joel Labovitz Entrepreneurial Success Awards.
