Thoughts on the challenges of running a small business in LA

-A A +A

BY STEPHANIE AND MARCEL REMILLIEUX

Owners of Fleur de Lys

As we are diving into this new election season, many local candidates have stopped by our small businesses to discuss the issues we are facing as business owners and listen to our suggestions on ways to overcome them. This has been a great opportunity for us to socialize and gather some thoughts.

Some of us have been established for years, some for months, some have closed their businesses recently, and some are about to open one, waiting to see what the future holds for them. We, at Fleur de Lys, have been established for only eight months but an interview of Cyndi Wells, owner of Pet Pangaea, published on Dec. 19, 2012, resonates strongly with our experience, not only because she has also started a small business in our town while being a LANL scientist but also because what she described in 2012 all seems so true today, at least for us.
