Entrepreneurs, artists and  artisans are plentiful in our communities. Small home-based businesses provide services and products ranging from organic vegetables to bookkeeping, mechanics, and massage therapy. Business opportunities are growing along with our population and the Chamber of Commerce is here to assist those business owners.

Area residents also work in construction, tourism, retail, accommodation, food services, agriculture, education, health care, administration, manufacturing, transportation, logging, and mining. There are also many artists in the area. High-speed Internet provides entrepreneurs with an opportunity for home-based businesses where the cost of buying a home is still reasonable compared to some surrounding communities.
