Each year the President of the United States issues a proclamation calling for the celebration of Small Business Week. Each year National Small Business Week is sponsored by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).
The celebration honors the estimated 25.5 million small businesses in America that employ more than half the country's private work force, create three of every four new jobs, and generate a majority of American innovations.The U.S. Small Business Administration will mark Small Business Week 2007, with events to be held on April 23-24, 2007, at the Ronald Reagan International Trade Center in Washington, D.C.
BOTTOMLINE: Consider that most people spend half their waking hours at work. To a business leader who takes the risk of owning and building a business, this is both exciting and awe-inspiring. It's exciting because of the great opportunity to do something meaningful in the lives of other people. It's awe-inspiring (and sobering) because of the responsibility it implies, derived from the understanding that oftentimes a single decision may significantly affect the lives of many others. Those who take this stewardship seriously truly are heros.
