I think of Eric Ryan, founder of Method, when I see the positive results of our small business survey
Madison, WI (PRWEB) September 4, 2008
BizFilings, the leader in helping entrepreneurs incorporate a business, is encouraging entrepreneurs to take charge of their future and start a small business today, citing no reason to wait for a market upturn.
Starting a business in a down economy can lend a competitive advantage with multiple benefits such as the ability to:
- attract better talent,
- negotiate competitive pricing from key vendors, and
- break through the clutter that exists in faster economic times
While negative economic conditions always seem to find headlines, many of the troubles affecting large corporations aren't affecting most small business owners. The Business Owner's Toolkit, sponsored by BizFilings, an online resource for business owners, recently conducted a survey of more than 1,300 small business owners and found that 83 percent remain optimistic and anticipate expanding their business over the next 12 months.
Roughly 85 percent of small businesses surveyed have not experienced decreases in demand for their products or services. In fact, most small business owners, 70 percent, said they anticipate the demand for their products to increase over the next six months. Only 5 percent expect demand for their products to decrease during the same time period.
"I think of Eric Ryan, founder of Method, when I see the positive results of our small business survey," said Troy Janisch, Publisher of the Business Owners Toolkit. "He recently was quoted as saying in an Inc. article that starting a business in a recession is like vacationing in the off-season. It's a little less crowded, and everything starts going on sale."
Method is now a leading provider of eco-friendly household products to national retailers like Target, despite getting its start in 2001 after the dot com crash.
Reminded by the Chinese proverb that insists the best time to plant a tree is always 20 years ago and the second best time is right now, BizFilings is providing need-to-know information about how to start a business on its blog Time to Start Up.
