Briefly 48 - CAPE GAZE'Iq, Friday, September 13 . September 19,1996 Small Business Center representative tells DeVries group to meet challenges "You have to meet the chal- lenges of the future," Barbara Necarsulmer, assistant state direc- tor of the Delaware Small Busi- ness Development Center told members of the DeVries Business and Professional Women's Club at their Sept. 10 meeting. Listing the characteristics of the Cape Region market, Necarsul- mer noted that while there are many retirees in the workforce, there are also more people in the area seeking full time employ- ment. Those who will be successful must adapt to change, and that goes not only for employees, but also for businesses themselves. "I hear complaints, especially in downtown Rehoboth Beach, about the sheer volume of retail space opening up on Route One. But this also provides opportuni- ties for other types of businesses to thrive in supporting these new retail operations," Necarsulmer told them. Another challenge is the anti- development sentiment which can put a damper on growth in the area, Nacarsulmer said, citing moratoriums and stricter zoning. "This can mean challenges for those whose livelihoods feed off construction," she added. Changes in the political world, with government providing fewer services will mean the private sec- tor will have the opportunity to step in, she added, while some new laws, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), "made some people very rich," as they helped businesses to comply with the act. Many businesses, on the other hand, found compliance a costly endeavor. "There will always be changes - they can help you or hurt you," she told them. "Those who suc- ceed are looking forward and tak- ing advantage of new opportuni- ties or they die," she added.
