America and Entrepreneurship

As we will be celebrating the Fourth of July this week, I found a great article called Celebrating the Freedom to be Entrepreneurs by Todd D. Stottlemyer.

In the article Stottlemyer eloquently states, “Small-business owners now account for more than half of the nation’s gross domestic product and are generating virtually all net new jobs. They don’t take lightly the gift of freedom so eloquently expressed in the Declaration of Independence and enshrined in our Constitution. Without their vigilance and without their efforts to remind legislators and policymakers of the importance of free enterprise, the laws of the land wouldn’t be favorable to those who start and grow businesses in this country, and the opportunities their efforts provide for future generations.”
