"dream big, start small"

 

 

President Obama declared May 1-7th National Small Business Week, and the theme for 2016 is, "Dream Big, Start Small".

What constitutes a 'small business' can technically change depending on the industry in the United States, but in general, small businesses employee less than 500 people.  Small businesses are responsible for creating two-thirds of American jobs annually. 

Female-owned businesses employ 7.7 million Americans, which is 40% more people than America's largest employees (McDonalds, IBM and Walmart).  Approximately 36% of US small businesses represent female-owned businesses.

If you *are* a small business, we wanted to say YAHOO and THX! If you are dreaming of starting your own business, our advice is, "#JUSTDOIT.  Do get some free advice from the Small Business Association!  Either way, select a small business to befriend and support; it will mean the world to them!
