Despite the slow economy, some experts believe the recession is the perfect time to take advantage of a small business opportunity. One of those experts is Tom Libertiny, who writes that "this recession is a once-in-a-lifetime benefit for those who have the courage and who are in the financial position to start a business." In his article, Libertiny goes on to explain why now may be the perfect time.

First, he says, high-quality employees are available for a good price - and the same can be said for buildings and equipment.

To make this deal even better, those high-quality workers are even less risk adverse than they would be normally. They understand that even jobs at the largest companies may not be secure, Libertiny says, so they'll be more willing to come on board with a small business.

Finally, team members will be able to concentrate fully on the company's mission and strategic objectives, because success will depend on being profitable. A business that can make it during the present economy will truly set itself apart, Libertiny writes.

There is evidence that small business owners are confidently taking advantage of these circumstances to improve their companies. A recent survey presented by FedEx Office found that 72 percent of small business owners believe they will be the driving force behind economic recovery.
