This month is a big month for entrepreneurs globally. All the hard work, long hours and tough economic times has taught us to be the best at what we do every day. Taking an idea and turning it into a business to help support your family and employ America is the greatest feeling of all. I am glad to be a small business owner and this month we celebrate your hard work.
On November 1, 2011 President Barack Obama declared November as “National Entrepreneurship Month”. Encouraging us to celebrate our successes and support one another. It has never been a greater time than now to join the movement of self employment. Technology has allowed us to turn our mom and pops into global empires that are growing by leaps and bounds every year. (visit website)
Take the time to support a small business during this month or mentor someone you know that is interested in starting their own business. Your advice and motivation can catapult their passion into a billion dollar idea.
