Small Business Week – Encouraging the Entrepreneurial Spirit

This week take time to inspire Entrepreneurship in others!
May 1st to May 7th is Small Business Week. I am proud to own a small business but more importantly to provide services that help other Small Business Owners and Entrepreneurs become more successful.

If you are a small business owner as well, I applaud you wholeheartedly. No one really knows all that is involved with running a business until they get in the thick of it. As much as I like to read books and watch shows on business when I can, the only way to truly learn is to dive in and take the risks needed to own a business.

Together let’s spread the spirit of Entrepreneurship!

As I have mentioned in previous articles, I enjoy shows that focus on business, especially for Small Business.

Here is a video from the MSNBC show ‘Your Business’ with a clip from the head of the Small Business Administration with some general info on some resources available from the SBA and discussing events for Small Business Week 2016…

Celebrating National Small Business Week
All this week, communities around the country are celebrating the contributions of America’s small businesses. The theme of National Small Business Week is “dream big, start small.” Maria Contreras-Sweet, the head of the U.S. Small Business Administration, highlights some of this week’s events.

If you own a small business already, keep at it and keep encouraging others to pursue the American Dream.

If you have thought about starting your own business, come up with a plan on how you are going to get there. Start working on a business plan, find local resources like SCORE or SBDC which can give you free advice on best strategies for getting started. Yes a lot of businesses do fail, the key is planning and persistence. There are risks but there are so many rewards as well.

We will continue to provide helpful resources on this site, please let us know what areas you might need more information on to start or make your business bloom!
