The Fortune 500 get a lot of press but they are not the soul of America. Remember, there are only 500 of them.
Seventeen million people in America work for themselves but have no employees. We hope someday they will.
We believe the essence of America is revealed in hearts of the 5.91 million entrepreneurs who own businesses with fewer than 100 employees. These are the ones who provide jobs, fuel the economy, and keep the flame burning in the torch of Liberty that illuminates the American Dream.
Our goal is to lift those 5.91 million to new heights of success, and to raise their number to 6 million. We need only another 9,000. That’s just 180 per state. Are you one of them? Do you have the entrepreneurial itch?
Have you ever read The E-Myth by Michael Gerber? If you haven’t, you should. (HINT: “E” stands for “entrepreneur.”) Gerber makes it plain how processes and procedures are the keys that allow the successful entrepreneur to grow from one employee to a thousand.
