Small Businesses Across the Country
What is causing so many American businesses to fail in our failing economy? Well, one possible culprit is the fact that many entrepreneurs have failed to realize that they can begin a business based on something they love. Another potential problem is that many entrepreneurs are unaware of or simply lack the proper tools to understand how to properly run a business. The bottom line is that entrepreneurs do not know how to succeed until they are willing to learn and then do the hard work to actually learn and implement whatever it takes to succeed. Unfortunately, local, state and federal governments have been stepping in to help with much-needed financing to help entrepreneurs succeed and as I will explain soon, business news is beginning to make sense again for entrepreneurs everywhere.
Why is business news making sense again? As we have seen during these difficult economic times, there are fewer business opportunities available and therefore more people are resorting to different ways to make money. This includes opening their own business, which can be risky and time consuming, using different businesses or going out on their own to start their own business. There are also a lot of people trying to save money by reducing expenses and finding creative ways to reduce their overhead, but many of these methods are simply not going to produce the profits that are needed to keep a business going. Luckily, local, state and federal governments are stepping in to help with much needed funding to assist these small businesses with getting their businesses up and running and therefore business news is starting to make sense once again.
When a business fails, the economy suffers, unemployment goes up, and taxes go up. When business succeeds, the economy recovers and unemployment goes down. This means that the government makes money off of both successes and failures, especially when the business succeeds and the government fails. The small business owner makes more than enough money for their investment back when they are successful and the government makes enough money off of both successes and failures to support our national economy.
There are two main reasons why this happens. First, small entrepreneurs tend to be more efficient with their money and they will spend it where it is most valuable – creating products and services that the market needs and wants. Second, because the small entrepreneurs are usually the first to take risks when starting a business, they are the ones who drive the economy forward. Without those first attempts at economic growth and development by small firms, more established firms would fail, which would result in the loss of jobs and the higher costs of doing business. That’s just the way it works.
When small business owners invest in equipment, they increase the value of their firm. When these firms purchase new equipment, they spend the money on things like computers so that they can process more customer transactions and create more business leads. This results in job creation, increased tax income and ultimately economic growth. This flow of job creation is important to business owners because it means that businesses have employees who are working and generating income for the business.
Entrepreneurship is good for business because it spurs the economy into a positive growth cycle. Without entrepreneurship, business would slow down because it would be impossible to spend the money generated by new products and services. Entrepreneurism makes the economy flourish because the number of consumers and firms growing is greater than those going out of business. More small business owners are creating jobs and more small business investment capital is being directed toward business start-ups.
Entrepreneurship can occur in any size of business. In fact, there are many examples of very small businesses that have grown into great successes that employ hundreds or even thousands of people. Examples include United States Steel, AT&T, Geico, Wendy’s, Bob Evans Food Inc., Microsoft and countless other examples. The list goes on. Entrepreneurship is something that can happen to any size of business, large or small.
So what can we learn from all of this? The economic growth enjoyed by the United States over the past few years can be attributed to entrepreneurial activity. Entrepreneurship is not something that only happens in big cities or in some small towns. It can happen throughout the entire country and help to fuel the economy.
