...reality is 2 out of every 3 new jobs in United States is due to small business.
Roswell, GA (PRWEB) May 20, 2011
This week marks the U.S. Small Business Administration’s 48th annual National Small Business Week in Washington, D.C. This event began in 1963 with President John F Kennedy signing the first proclamation to National Small Business Week which recognizes the thousands of small businesses and owners that are the backbone of the American Economy.
Mention the US economy and big money and big employers and everyone thinks Microsoft and Google but the reality is 2 out of every 3 new jobs in United States is due to the small business. Over half of all working Americans work for the mom and pop start up or the family run franchise with less than 20 employees. Over half – that’s wild. So what might seem like a fluff is really a well deserved hats off to big business Small Businesses.
Franchise Gator would like to say thank you to all the entrepreneurs who leave the corporate world behind and forge their own path – a path that has made America what it is today. We pride ourselves in assisting that Entrepreneur by providing a directory of thousands of business and franchise opportunities as well as information and resources to learn more about the benefits of business ownership.
National Small Business Week will really kick off tomorrow in Washington with a 2.5 day conference for small business owners featuring round tables on things like Social Media and Exports peppered in with several award ceremonies recognizing business owners, lenders and small business champions, such as score. Franchise Gator would like to give a shout out to Kathryn Vercruyssen, the Idaho Small Business Person of the Year 2011. Kathryn owns a Comfort Keepers in North Idaho. You go girl.
