Most small businesses began with a passion to provide better service and quality. This is Main Street America, your baker, your realtor we are talking about. Their passionate about serving customer and worried about the profit later.
4. Victors not Victims
The Small Business Owner doesn’t take “NO” for an answer. Great businesses found success in their rut. Some small business owners even find their path to starting a business after losing a job. After facing the economy, government regulations and taxes small businesses still manage to lead the American workforce.
5. From Dreamers to Doers
After ignoring his boss’ advice and quitting his job in New York, Jeff Bezos drove across the country to Seattle, drawn by the city’s large population of software developers to launch Amazon.com in 1994. Amazon.com started off with a big dream. Small Business Owners pursue their dreams and make things happen!
