A recent survey conducted by The Entrepreneurs' Organization indicates 62 percent of Cincinnati-area entrepreneurs think they'll see increased net profits in 2013. Forty-one percent of those surveyed expect to hire more full-time employees, while 50 percent expect to hire more part-time workers.
The survey included 43 Cincinnati-area companies with at least $1 million in annual revenue. Overall, the average respondent grosses $3.4 million in revenue.
