Entrepreneurs – Be Thankful For Your Business, You Make America Great — 42 Comments

  1. Being an entrepreneur IS the American dream— a truly beautiful thing. My husband has his own business, and I would have to say his favorite thing is probably the fact that he’s in charge!

  2. I commend people who have the courage to venture into business at this tough time. It is what America great indeed…giving others the opportunity to work.

  3. I love that quote graphic! My favorite part about being an entrepreneur is definitely the fact that I get to stay home with my daughter.

  4. I love that my kids brag about me! Seriously, it really makes my heart glow. I also like being able to support local small businesses like myself and help them in their marketing and reach – usually for free.

    • One of my highlights this week was my teenie bopper complimenting me on the work I do and saying she is proud of how my online magazine has grown and developed.

  5. Our country definitely needs more entrepreneurs. I’ll definitely do my part to support my local businesses.

  6. And thank you for being a part of that. This is a wonderful post. America may be suffering right now, but it still is the land of opportunity. We hope entrepreneurs like you can keep going an continue to support America. It is nice having your own business as you are your own boss.

  7. I love the idea of owning my own business and working for ME! One day it will happen!

  8. owning your own business isnt simple and easy there are so many ways to keep and maintain the smooth relationship between the owner, employee and the clients.

  9. That is so true about being able to do anything you want in America. I worked with a guy who inspired me, he literally lived on the streets as a kid and put himself through law school and turned around to take care of his mother. That is proof that anything is possible when you work hard for it.

  10. This is still a very young country and we still very much have a frontier mentality. We want to strike our own claims and be in charge of our own destinies and that is what makes us all such strong individuals. What makes us so special is that we embrace this want for individuality as a country and together we know this want as Freedom.

  11. My favorite and least favorite part of being an entrepreneur is being responsible for everything. It’s great when everything works out but not so much when you mess up!

  12. I think this is what everyone strives for…. being able to do something that you are so passionate about and having no one to answer to but yourself. Great post! The American dream!

  13. You are so absolutely right about entrepreneurship. It’s hard work, but it is what America is about – opportunity and possibilities. I never thought I would be doing this, but I am so glad that I have. This is such a great post.

  14. “Entrepreneurs embody what is good about America.” LOVE this. It’s tough to be your own business but so fulfilling.

  15. I think it’s amazing that some people can make so much from nothing – one day I would like to be a successful entrepreneur πŸ™‚ x

  16. Love this post. If more people would see that they are enabled to become successful based on their own two hands, we would not have the entitlement mentality that seems to be plaguing America.

  17. I think my favorite part of owning my own biz is that my success and failures all depend on ME – I can work as hard as I want, or as little as I want when I feel the need!

  18. Oh man! Being an entrepreneur is amazing! I get to set my own schedules, interact with clients in my own way, create jobs for people like contractors and design assistants – and just be able to pay it forward to people in need.

    When i open a physical store/office, it will be even more jobs and will help the economy out even more.

    Keep it Touched,

Tell me what you think.
