Plenty of business owners and experts are just as ready to toss out 2010 as they were to wave goodbye to 2009.

The hope is always that the next year will be a better one, filled with people willing to pay top dollar for houses, buy that new car they’ve been eyeing and hold on for dear life to their jobs. Whether it’s realistic or not, a new year’s resolution in the business world can spark a little optimism after months of unpleasant economic news.

Here’s what a few members of the local business community had to say when asked, “What is your 2011 new year’s resolution for business?”

“That the economy picks up for everyone. We have to be thankful for our jobs and hope things get better for everyone.”

— Karen Hildebrandt, owner of Unique Expressions, 336 Main St.

 

“That everyone looking to find a home can find one — that can be a lofty goal. An increased economy to give people more options so they can buy a house.”

— Tom Kenyon, Bray & Co. Realtor and Grand Junction City Councilman.

 

“We’re hoping construction doesn’t kill us. (We’re) trying to keep positive and hope next year’s better.”

— Paul Knaysi, owner of Pablo’s Pizza, 319 Main St.

 

“I would hope we have seen bottom in the current economic cycle and are headed in the other way.”

— Steve Irion, community bank president for Wells Fargo Bank.

 

“To travel more and encourage others to do the same.”

— Kevin Reimer, co-owner of Main Street Suites and Hampton Inn, 225 and 205 Main St.
