Entrepreneurship is important for our country. Most of the fortune 500 companies in our world today, have grown from small businesses.
But even if a business isn’t part of the fortune 500 lists, it’s still important. Each business is the livelihood of the owner and the small number of people he/she supports.
A good number of businesses that start will fold. Of the small percentage that survives an even smaller percentage will become a large business.
Why Entrepreneurship Is Important?
Entrepreneurship isn’t easy for everyone, in fact, a lot of people who try working for themselves fail. However, with the right planning, determination, and focus, I believe anybody can survive.
Growing a business starts with an idea. People connect ideas differently in their heads, so I won’t tell you an idea stupid.
That’s a lie, some ideas are dumb…I thought about raising crickets at one point. While you can make money doing it, the noises they make at night are maddening.
The Story Of Apple Computers:
Chances are you have owned an iPhone, MacBook, iPod, or an apple product of some kind. Or you’ve seen one.
Many people don’t know that apple computers started out in a garage. Steve Jobs and a few others built computers and their desire to be entrepreneurs built apple.
They had some rough spots, and it took a while for them to grow, but that’s the life of an entrepreneur.
Entrepreneurship Is Important, And It’s Difficult.
Apple became a decently sized company in the 80s. Then it lost focus and almost went bankrupt. Only through bringing Steve Jobs back, were they able to restart, and eventually become one of the largest companies in the world.
Chances are your company isn’t going to be at the top. However, by giving up, you’re letting go of any chance.
Owning and operating a small business is difficult, but entrepreneurship is important. If you’ve ever driven through a small town you’ll see small businesses everywhere. These are the companies and small stores that keep America running. Yeah, there are Walmarts and home Depot around, but a small business is really what grows/feeds America.
