Oh, the joy and empowerment of having your own business. For many the notion of it is…almost romantic. The idea is so compelling that nearly everyone, at one time or another has thought to get in the game. Many of us have bitten the bullet and really done it. There are more small businesses in the US than one may realize. In fact, 99.9% of the businesses running today in the United States are small businesses*.
At one point it seemed everyone was giving up the corporate gig and going into business for themselves, with small businesses growing by more than 388% over a 13 year period…until the death spiral of 2009 when more than 2.5 million U.S. businesses gave up and went away for good as if they had never existed*.
