FACEOOK users took to the Chronicle page on Tuesday morning after being asked how they feel about business in the new year.

"The economy has all of the earmarks that 2014 should be a good one," commenter David Lightbody said.

Trevor Boulton said 2013 had been dominated by divisive politics and he believed 2014 could be about working on our own futures.

"With the help of people supporting small business, it can only help," Troy North commented.
