It’s pretty hard to ignore the sock market, especially when every ten seconds people start freaking out, and then that guy on MSNBC starts yelling even louder than usual. But this Portfolio.com article is advising you to do just that–ignore all the hoopla. The article tackles the issue from three viewpoints. First, entrepreneurs themselves.
