Q: What advice would you give a business just starting out?
A: “You need to change your mindset, if you have one, of competition in this area to ‘coopetition’. Jarvis and I are strong proponents of the concept that a rising tide lifts all boats. … We, the Monadnock Region, need more people here to stay viable and relevant. Our advice would be work together.”
